Wechsler played Jack Porter, the boyfriend and later husband of Amanda Clarke (Emily VanCamp), for the entire four-season run of ABC’s Revenge. Since that show ended in 2015, he has appeared in series such as Chicago P.D. and The Player and was set as a series regular in last year’s Fox pilot Recon, which was not picked up. Wechsler is repped by Innovative Artists and Gilbertson Entertainment.
