Born in Dallas, Texas, and raised in Oklahoma, actor and musician CHRISTIAN KANE majored in art history at the University of Oklahoma
before heading to Los Angeles to pursue acting.
In 1997, Kane landed this first major role in the television series Fame L.A.
Kane's television credits quickly grew to include
Rescue 77; Joss Whedon's and David Greenwalt's Angel, starring David Boreanaz;
Steven Spielberg's award-winning mini-series Into the West, starring Josh Brolin
and Keri Russell; and Jerry Bruckheimer's hit series Close to Home.
Kane's outstanding performances led to numerous feature roles in major studio
projects, including such films as Just Married, alongside Ashton utcher and
Brittney Murphy; Secondhand Lions, starring Robert Duvall and Michael Caine;
Peter Berg's Friday Night Lights; and Taxi, starring Queen Latifah and Jimmy
Fallon. From 2008 to 2012, Kane starred alongside Timothy Hutton in TNT's hit
television series, Leverage. During the series' five-year run, Kane played Eliot
Spencer, a retrieval specialist and Black Ops soldier.
Kane's passion for country music and as a live performer led him to forming
the southern rock band KANE in 1998. The band released a self-titled debut album
in 2002 and an unplugged album, Acoustic Live in London! (2004). After
songwriting in Nashville since 2003, Kane eventually moved to the city part-time
where he collaborated with legendary music producer Bob zrin (Pink Floyd, KISS)
to record and release his solo debut, The House Rules (2010). The title track
was featured in EA Sports videogame NASCAR 2009 and used extensively by ESPN
during college football games. The album reached No. 1 on Billboard's
Heatseekers Chart and No. 3 on iTunes Country Chart. Two songs from that album -
"Something's Gotta' Give" and "Whiskey in Mind" - are featured in the 50 to 1
soundtrack. In addition to his own releases, Kane's song "Happy Man" was
recorded and released by country superstar Trace Adkins.
Kane's upcoming theatrical projects include All Stars, starring John Goodman
and Angela Kinsey.
