'The O.C.': Where Are They Now?
"The OC": Where Are They Now - Tate Donovan
Tate Donovan (Jimmy Cooper)
Tate Donovan's onscreen "O.C." persona, Jimmy Cooper, was a financial planner who seemed destined to struggle through failed business ventures and relationships.
Life after the teen soap has been smooth sailing for Donovan. From 2007 to 2010, he starred as the far-more-stable lawyer Tom Shayes on "Damages." In 2012, he had a major role in the Academy Award-winning film "Argo," playing an American diplomat awaiting rescue from Iran in 1979. Though Donovan's NBC drama, "Deception," was canceled, his new thriller called, interestingly enough, "Hostages," alongside Dylan McDermott and Toni Collette was picked up by CBS and will air this fall.
