NEW YORK (Reuters) - A man serving probation on a two-year-old conviction for stalking actress Uma Thurman and harassing her family was jailed on Friday on new charges that he resumed stalking the actress, authorities said.

Jack Jordan, 39, was arrested in November at his home in Montgomery County, Maryland as he was researching the Oscar-nominated actress on Google, and he was transferred to New York on Thursday to face the fresh stalking charge.

Jordan on Friday pleaded not guilty in front of a Manhattan judge and was jailed without bail, a spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney's office said.

Jordan was convicted in 2008 of sending harassing e-mails to Thurman's father and brother, loitering for hours on the steps of the actress's Manhattan apartment and visiting her trailer on the set of the 2006 film "My Super Ex-Girlfriend." At the time, he was given probation.

Thurman, who testified at Jordan's 2008 trial, starred in the "Kill Bill" movies and has a long list of film credits that include roles in "Pulp Fiction" and "The Producers."
