At just eight months, Jesse was already ‘acting’, appearing in a commercial for Q-Tip. He was encouraged by his parents – actors Curtis Watrouse and Terry Porter who appeared in numerous soap operas and commercials – to pursue acting and modelling, auditioning for various roles. In 1984, he made his first appearance, in the film “Falling in Love” which starred Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep. Meantime, Bradford attended and matriculated from Brien McMahon High School where he played tennis and was Homecoming King. Afterwards, he attended Columbia University and would graduate in 2002 with a film degree.
During the 1990s, Jesse appeared in several films as a child actor, mostly drawing good reviews. He was part of the legal drama film “Presumed Innocent” which is based on the novel of the same name, and was also cast in 1993’s “King of the Hill” which was directed by Steven Soderbergh. As Bradford grew older, he started to get more notable roles including in “Romeo + Juliet”, a modern version of the Shakespeare play. He also played the romantic interest in the film “Bring It On”, about a cheerleading competition. Jesse then got the lead roles in “Swimfan” and “Clockstoppers” which is a science fiction comedy film produced by Nickelodeon Movies. He was also cast in the fifth season of “The West Wing”, playing the role of White House intern Ryan Pierce. These numerous opportunities would all help in raising his net worth.
In 2006, Bradford played Rene Gagnon in the film “Flags of Our Fathers”, which is based on the book by James Bradley, directed by Clint Eastwood and is about the Battle of Iwo Jima. In 2009, Jesse would become the lead in “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” which is also based on a book. The following year, he became part of the main cast of the courtroom drama series “Outlaw”, which was short lived however. He also appeared in a few episodes of “Code Black” in 2016. His continued work has ensured that his net worth continues to rise.
Aside from acting, Jesse was also an investor in the Manhattan nightclub called The Plumm, presumably profitable too.
For his personal life, it is known that Bradford is an only child. His cousin is writer Sarah Messer. Apparently he is still single, are there aren’t even any rumours of romantic associations.

[on Clint Eastwood's directorial efficiency] I heard rumors that he really does two takes, but I had a friend who was going into a Clint Eastwood movie, I wouldn't say he does two takes - I would say he does one. The average is probably two, but the number of times we only did one was overwhelming. It's kind of cool because, as an actor, it forces you to be on your game. With this movie, I learned really quickly to be very clear on what I thought were the most important aspects of the scene and how I wanted those aspects to come off, and then practice how I was going to make sure they did, because if I only got one shot, I didn't want to be the guy who was always asking for another take. I didn't want to waste my bullets in that department.
I love being around kids; they're honest and refreshing, and I love teaching them new things.
Everyone always told me I was fated to be in front of the camera.
