Jonathan Ahdout (born March 18, 1989) is an American actor.

Ahdout was born in Santa Monica, California to Yahya Ahdout and Jacqueline Hayempour, Iranian Jews who left Iran to go to the U.S. with their baby daughter (J. Ahdout's older sister) in 1982 via Pakistan to Israel. Ahdout resides in Brentwood with his parents and siblings, Melody (born in Iran) and Daniel (born in California). He has attended Sinai Akiba Academy and Harvard-Westlake School.

He is currently attending his first year at the University of Southern California (USC). He is double majoring in Business and Film.

Ahdout played Esmail Behrani in the film House of Sand and Fog, and Behrooz Araz in the television series 24. Coincidentally, he portrayed the son of a character played by Shohreh Aghdashloo in both roles. He has said in an interview that both of them were surprised to learn the other had been cast on 24. His most notable performance was in Season 4 of hit series 24, where he kills a family member.

He has recently played a guest appearance for the TV show The Unit.
