He is particularly well-known for his parts in the comedies “The Brady Bunch Movie” and “A Very Brady Sequel.”
His acting career got off to a good start when he was cast in a cereal commercial at the age of six. A few years later, he scored a part in a feature picture at eight.
The actor’s career has been steadily improving ever since. Soffer is a skilled actor in addition to being a top-notch soccer player. He and actress Torrey DeVitto have been dating since 2017.
Where Is Jesse Lee Soffer Going After Leaving Chicago PD?
Jesse Lee Soffer is leaving Chicago P.D. According to our sister Variety, the actor will leave the NBC drama sometime in the fall, and the upcoming Season 10 will be his final season.
In a statement, Soffer said, “I want to thank the amazing fans for their unwavering support over the past ten years and want to express my deepest gratitude to Dick Wolf and everyone at Wolf Entertainment, Peter Jankowski, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, Rick Eid, Gwen Sigan, NBC, Universal Television, my fellow castmates, and our incredible crew. Everyone working on the show has put their heart and soul into making this hour-long drama weekly. I’m proud of my time as Det. Jay Halstead, and I always will be.”
