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
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.
performances led to numerous feature roles in major studio
such films as Just Married, alongside Ashton Kutcher 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 Ezrin (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
