Outstandingly established himself to be a successful actor, writer, director, also producer, which is such a rare thing found in Hollywood, Edward J. Burns Jr. surely has leaped far beyond other stars of his generation to stand firmly amidst the heavy flowing of new talents in the industry. The middle child of Irish Catholic immigrants formerly worked as a police sergeant and an employee of Federal Aviation Administration at Kennedy Airport, he was born on January 29, 1968 in Woodside, Queens County, New York but spent most of his early life in Long Island growing up alongside his siblings, Mary and Brian. This brown-haired guy initially studied English literature at State University of New York in Albany yet later changed direction to learn more about filmmaking at Manhattan's Hunter College during his junior year to then begin writing screenplays until he decided to quit the institution in 1994.
