Personal life[edit]

Nordling was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and grew up in Washington Township. After moving to Saddle River, New Jersey, Nordling attended Ramsey High School, graduating in 1980.[1] After high school, Nordling attended Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He graduated with a degree in art in 1984.


One of his major roles was playing Ted Orion, an NHL pro turned hockey coach in D3: The Mighty Ducks. The 1997 TV movie Soul Mates, starring Nordling and Kim Raver, is shown by market researchers at Television Preview as a "new" pilot. He played Gaëtan Dugas in And the Band Played On, the HBO production of Randy Shilts' chronicle of the evolving AIDS epidemic, and Capote Duncan in Sex and the City. In 1999 he portrayed original Apple investor Mike Markkula in the TNT movie Pirates of Silicon Valley.

He played Sela Ward's ex-husband, Jake Manning, on the TV drama Once and Again from 1999-2002. He starred as Brent Barrow alongside Courteney Cox in the series Dirt on the FX cable network in 2007-08. He most recently appeared as FBI agent Larry Moss in the seventh season of 24.[2] During the 2009-10 season of Desperate Housewives, Nordling played Nick Bolen, a regular and the on-screen husband of Drea de Matteo, but the roles of the Bolens were discontinued after the one season.[3][4] Nordling also starred as 9/11 hero Tom Burnett in Flight 93. In 2011, he began a recurring role on the medical/crime drama Body of Proof, playing Todd Fleming, the ex-husband of Dana Delany's character, which he played until the show's cancellation. He is now starring as the robot ETH.3n in the upcoming video game Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

"Nordling was born 3,000 miles from the craziness, at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, and grew up mostly in Washington Township (in the only house on the town's Times Square). When he was 15, the family moved to Saddle River, and Nordling transferred to Ramsey High School, where he became a soccer star."
