Donal Francis Logue (born February 27, 1966) is a Canadian actor perhaps most famous for his role as Sean Finnerty in the television sitcom Grounded for Life (2001-2005). His other notable roles include starring in the film The Tao of Steve and the detective series Terriers.

Logue was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada to Irish parents from County Kerry. His father, Michael J. Logue, was once a Carmelite Catholic missionary in Africa, where he met Donal's mother, Elizabeth. They eventually got married and then moved to England. They had four children. Logue has three sisters: Karina, an actress; twin sister Deirdre (who is not in show business); and Eileen, an education consultant. His father is the president of Aisling Industries, which makes microchips for cellphone companies.

Logue lived most of his childhood and teen years in El Centro, California, where he attended Central Union High School, although for his junior year, he attended St Ignatius' College in Enfield, Middlesex, England. While in High School, Donal was the California State Champion in Impromptu Speaking and in 1983 was elected President of the American Legion Boys Nation. His mother was a teacher at Calexico High School in Calexico, California during the 1980s and 1990s. After high school, Logue studied History at Harvard University. While there, he was a member of the Signet Society. He travels back and forth to Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland, where his mother lives, and holds both Irish and Canadian citizenship.

Logue has homes in Los Angeles and Oregon. When not acting, Logue is heavily involved in soccer, and regularly plays for the Los Angeles-based amateur team Hollywood United.

Logue has a Class-A Commercial Drivers License and is licensed to drive tractor-trailers with double or triple trailers, tankers and hazardous materials. He has a trucking company called Aisling Trucking with two partners based out of Central Point, Oregon, which the three founded in 2012.

Aside from a few TV movies, Logue's first film appearance was playing Dr. Gunter Janek in the 1992 film Sneakers. In 1993, he portrayed Capt. Ellis Spears, in Gettysburg. In 1994, he guest starred on an episode of Northern Exposure playing a movie script agent, Judd Bromell, in the episode "Baby Blues". Soon afterwards, he appeared as a rival FBI agent to Fox Mulder in The X-Files episode "Squeeze". Logue's character Jimmy The Cab Driver was a staple of MTV promos in the early '90s. With more than 40 other movies to his credit, some of his more significant appearances include the 1998 film Blade (as the vampire Quinn), and The Patriot with 'Mel Gibson', in 2000. He appeared in two of 'Edward Burns' films: Purple Violets and The Groomsmen. In Purple Violets he plays a British chef.

Logue appeared as 'Mark Ruffalo's' character's psychiatrist best friend in Just Like Heaven (2005). Logue also co-starred with 'Nicolas Cage' in the movie Ghost Rider, the 'David Fincher' film Zodiac, and alongside 'Mark Wahlberg' in the 20th Century Fox Film Max Payne.
