He moved into feature film work, most notably on such films as Columbia's "Deep End of the Ocean" (with Michelle Pfieffer), Disney's "Tuck Everlasting" (with Sir Ben Kingsley and William Hurt) and Warner Bros.

Jonathan has worked with no less than nine Academy Award winning/nominated actors in his career, and has been featured as one of People's 50 Most Beautiful People and Sexiest Men Alive.
Recently he played the lead role in the feature film thriller "Kalamity" (with Nick Stahl) and also had a recurring role on the Fox TV series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles". Upon Jonathan’s return to “General Hospital” in 2009, he earned back-to-back Emmy nominations for his work and consequently won his fourth Emmy as Best Supporting Actor. His presence and consistently heart wrenching performances on GH significantly boosted the shows ratings as a fan and critical favorite. TV Guide summed it up like this, “Jackson’s performance...left me breathless...make no mistake about it: Jackson was more brilliant and memorable than any other leading man in soaps.”
