He first drew critical and audience praise for his work in FOX Network's hugely successful series "Party of Five," winner of the 1996 Golden Globe for Best Drama.
Hailing from a ranch in Wyoming where his family raised horses and barley, Fox enjoyed the all-American upbringing that led him to play football at Columbia University where he also studied Economics. With every intent of being a successful Wall Street broker, Fox was instead swayed to modeling, leading to some commercial spots and he has been acting ever since.
