American TV and movie producer responsible for action films like ""Flashdance," Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Black Hawk Down," as well as popular TV series like "CSI." He is head of Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Jerry Bruckheimer TV.
The only child of German immigrants, he earned his bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Arizona in 1965. He began his professional career as an advertising executive. He and Don Simpson, whom he met at a screening, became one of the hottest teams in Hollywood. By 2004, Bruckheimer had produced or co-produced 22 films, 18 of which generated more than $100 million in worldwide box office sales. His films appeal to audiences who like good plots, lots of action, tension, and sometimes gore. He says "I make what I like to see on the screen. If I was making my movies for critics, I'd be living in some small Hollywood apartment somewhere." He is notoriously finicky about details and has a reputation for wearing people down in order to produce a final product he likes and in order to get actors the pay they want.
His second wife is Linda Bruckheimer, an author.
