Who is Mike Vogel?

Born Michael James Vogel on the 17th July 1979, in Abington Township, Pennsylvania USA, he is an actor and model, perhaps best known to the world as Johnny Foote in the drama film “The Help” (2011), and also as Jack in the romantic comedy film “She’s Out of My League”, a year prior, among many other differing roles he has secured so far in his career.

Mike Vogel Bio: Early Life, Family, and Education

Mike is the oldest child of Kathy and Jim Vogel, as he has a younger brother and a sister. Although born in Abington Township, he grew up in nearby Warminster Township, where he attended William Tennent High School. Following matriculation, Mike enrolled at Cairn University, located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, but as soon as his acting career gained momentum, he left his studies to concentrate full-time on his career.

Career Beginnings

It was in the early ‘00s that Mike started traveling back and forth to New York City, in pursuit of acting roles and also to work as a model. He was soon contracted to Levi’s, and secured his first acting role in the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated comedy series “Grounded for Life”, portraying Dean Piramatti from 2001 until 2004. Concurrently, Mike had other roles, including in such films as “Grind” (2003) next to Adam Brody and Joey Kern, and then in the romantic drama based on Emily Bronte’s novel of the same name, “Wuthering Heights” (2003), starring Erika Christensen and Cristopher Masterson, and the highly praised horror film “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (2003).

In 2005 he had a supporting role in the film “The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants”, while also appearing with Steve Howey in the film “Supercross”. The following year he featured in Wolfgang Petersen’s Oscar Award-winning action adventure “Poseidon”, next to Richard Dreyfuss, Kurt Russell and Emmy Rossum.

Rise to Prominence

Gradually Mike’s career was improving, and he started getting more notable roles, such as the titular character in the film “Ian Stone”, a horror film directed by Dario Piana, and also starring Jaime Murray and Christina Cole. He then starred in the sci-fi horror film “Cloverfield”, with Lizzy Caplan and Jessica Lucas, both in 2008, while two years later he was cast in the romantic drama “Blue Valentine” (2010), starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, and then in 2011 starred in the drama “Heaven’s Rain”, and had a support role in the Oscar Award-winning drama “The Help”, directed by Tate Taylor and starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer. This role earned him an SAG award, among many others. Although only a minor role, Mike became a star thanks to the success of the film.

Continual Success

Since 2010, Mike’s name started becoming more popular with the public, critics, and Hollywood on the whole, which resulted in more prominent roles. In 2013 he was selected for the role of Dale ‘Barbie’ Barbara in the TV series based on Steven King’s novel “Under the Dome” (2013-2015), while in 2015 he portrayed Ricky Stormgren in the TV mini-series “Childhood’s End”. Most recently, he portrayed Adam Dalton in the action-drama series “The Brave”, co-starring Anne Heche and Tate Ellington, however, NBC canceled the series after only one season of 14 episodes. Since then, Mike has starred in the action film “The Amendment”, based on the real-life story that happened in the late ‘70s to Brooks Douglas, the character he portrays, and his sister Leslie, played by Taryn Manning. The script was written by the very Brooks Douglas and Paul Brown who were in charge of the entire project, and premiered on the 12th April 2018.

1I have many friends in Special Forces, and the amazing thing about these guys is how quickly they can read someone.
2I do things that are very uncharacteristic of a normal workout routine. I hate cardio. Absolutely hate it. I grew up as a wrestler, so it was constant cardio, cardio, cardio.
3I have such an eclectic taste in music. Come to a backyard BBQ at my house, and I will run the gamut from Skynyrd to Sinatra to '90s grunge, rap, R&B, and classic rock. I have issues. If I had to pick one, I love this country artist named Craig Morgan. His music and his songs are so relatable and tell such vivid stories.
4I roll out of bed, walk into the garage, work out, and go about my day. I'll bring my daughter out there in her ExerSaucer. I don't know if I'll ever go back to a gym.
5My whole life, I wanted to be a fighter pilot; it's what I wanted to do. I set up all of my classes for it, but I got lazy my senior year in high school and didn't get my paperwork in.
6When I graduated from high school, I weighed 125 pounds because of wrestling. Suddenly, I realized I could eat whatever I wanted - plus, creatine was new at the time. I went from 125 to 175 pounds, working out like crazy. I was yoked. But I wasn't drinking enough fluids and ended up with a kidney stone - and 3 weeks of pure hell.
7On paper, actors are the dumbest group of individuals essentially out there. Most of us have not gone to college. However, we never stop learning. Because of what we do, we're constantly researching, constantly learning.
8I grew up a plumber's son in Philadelphia.
9The Dome is a metaphor that could mean anything - it could be nuclear fallout, terrorists - I've always been fascinated with stories where people's roles are flipped on their heads, be it the Wall Street guy, the techno guy, etc. All of those things are only successful when there are people and money around.
10When my wife and I met, I couldn't talk to her - and my defense mechanism is sarcasm. I belittle someone with verbal pokes and prods. I did it to her out of complete awe. When friends introduced us, I said 'Hi' - and turned my back. Later, I called my mom and best friend and said, 'I think I just met my wife.'
11Music is just a huge part of my life. It affects moods. I've always found it insane how you can hear one song, and it takes you back to a specific, specific moment in your life, and you remember it vividly like it was yesterday.
12My wife is a terrific Southern cook. My favorite of all the great things she cooks is 'trash potatoes.' That's mashed potatoes with sour cream, bacon, cheddar cheese, and horseradish. It's a total gut bomb.
13About his acting teacher Lynette Sheldon. "She's the greatest! Lynette is a miracle-worker - she accomplishes more in one month than most teachers do in years! She makes you strong - and she's tough in a good way."
