Joseph Sikora’s a popular actor who, is mostly known for his portrayal of Tommy Egan in the much-loved TV series, ‘Power’. Over the years, he has made appearances in many other well-loved TV shows, such as ‘Criminal Minds’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. He is very popular and admired by fans, but still manages to keep his personal information quite the secret.
Early life and family
Joseph was born to Albin Joseph Sikora and Barbara Jo in Chicago, Illinois USA on 27 June 1976.
Although he is American by birth, the actor has very mixed ethnicity, with Dutch, Polish and Slovakian blood running through his veins. Joseph is the eldest child and his siblings are Albin and Chris Sikora. As a youngster, he lived in Norwood and Jefferson Park.
Joseph got his early education at the male-only Roman Catholic secondary school, Notre Dame College Prep, which is situated in Illinois. He matriculated in 1994, then studied acting at Chicago’s Columbia College and graduated with a BA in theatre in 1998.
For some actors, making it big happens almost overnight, but that isn’t the case for most of them. Although Joseph began as a child actor, he had to ‘hang in there’ for quite a while before he got roles in any big shows or films. In 1990, Joseph appeared in the TV series ‘The New Adam-12’, but it was later that his acting career really took off. When he was 17 years old, he landed a role in the film ‘Rudy’. He played the role of a young Johnny Wilson, and had roles in ‘Early Edition’ and eventually starred in ‘ER’, ‘Criminal Minds’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Without a Trace’.
This cemented Joseph in the acting industry, and he also made appearances in ‘CSI: Miami’, and the ever-popular ‘Prison Break’.
He landed a role in the horror movie ‘Night Skies’ in 2007. and also starred in ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ in 2010. Later that year, he was cast the role of Glen Miga in ‘Shutter Island’, and in 2012 landed a role in ‘Jack Reacher’ alongside Hollywood hotshot Tom Cruise, playing James Barr in the commercially successful film.
Two years later, Joseph returned to the theatre, with ‘The Freedom of the City’, however, it is for his role in ‘Power’ that Joseph is most famous for; he got the role of Tommy Eagen. and starred alongside Omari Hardwick and 50 Cent from 2014 until 2020.
Currently, he has a recurring role in ‘Ozark’ as Frank Cosgrove Jr. Although he has never played a gay role, he admitted that he would not mind having a role in which his character isn’t straight.
Hobbies, favourite things and interesting facts
Despite keeping his life more private than many actors nowadays, there are several interesting facts known about him. When he was a child, he featured in a television commercial with sports superstar Michael Jordan. He is also an ensemble member of Chicago’s Shattered Globe Theatre Company.
During the ‘90s, Joseph was part of a band who called themselves ‘The Delicates’, but it isn’t clear what his role in the band was. Interestingly, people sometimes describe Joseph as a double of the popular rapper, Eminem. Joseph and his one brother Albin look so much alike that many people think the two are twins.
It is believed that Joseph married his non-famous wife in 2014 – he has been doing a great job at keeping his marriage a secret.
Not much is known about his wife, but she’s believed to be a make-up artist, and one report by ‘The Net Line’ indicates that Joseph met his wife on the set of the popular crime drama ‘Boardwalk Empire’.
It has not been confirmed, but it’s believed that Joseph and his wife live in Manhattan. He is yet to open up about his private life to give fans all the details they’re so hungry for. He did once share a tweet in which he referred to ‘the wife’, so it’s safe to assume that Joseph is a married man. Despite this, he has never been spotted with whoever the lucky lady may be.
Earlier, it was rumoured that Joseph was dating Lala Anthony, the actress who plays his love interest in ‘Power’. There has never been an affirmation from either of them that they were romantically involved in real life.
After posting a photo of himself with radio host Kendra G, it was speculated that they could be dating. However, it later turned out that there was no truth to the rumours.
Because of the lack of evidence of romance and relationships, there have also been rumours that Joseph is gay. His keen fashion sense added fuel to these rumours, but the actor hasn’t responded to what was said about him.
