That timeless leading man spark and quiet strength remain signatures of the acclaimed actor, writer, producer, and entrepreneur. “When you see guys like Jackie Gleason or Steve McQueen on-screen, they represent real men-in all of their tragedy and triumph,” he says. “It’s the humor of Gleason in The Honeymooners and raw grit of McQueen, which both made a big impact on me at a young age.

Beyond Shameless, he’s engaged audiences with high-profile guest spots on Jennifer Falls, New Girl, Psych, and more in addition to a six-year run on Reba. “I always want to challenge myself,” he goes on. “I’m never content just to pursue one style or art form. It’s about forging ahead in new adventures at every turn.” He continues to expand his sphere of influence. Profiled in-depth by the likes of Men’s Fitness, People, Hollywood Reporter, and more, he’s amassed over 900K Instagram followers as a true fan favorite.
