Raised in the Bronx, Desmond Harrington went to a Catholic prep school and worked as a bartender and construction worker before embarking upon an acting career. For his first role, he played Aulon in Luc Besson's The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc. He then nabbed prominent roles in films such as The Hole, Ghost Ship, and Wrong Turn. In September 2008, he joined the Showtime TV show Dexter. Desmond is no longer in the Gossip Girl picture (for now, at least), since his evil character Jack Bass was kicked out of NYC and stripped of his position as CEO of Bass Industries. Will Jack return in Season 3? That's to be seen, but if he does, he certainly won't be greeted with much warmth by Chuck, Lily, and friends. Sorry, Desmond.
