Christian Kane was born in Dallas, Texas. Christian and his family moved around a lot throughout the South before settling down in Norman, Oklahoma. Christian attended the University of Oklahoma where he had plans to major in Art History. But Christian wanted to try out acting, so he took his truck and his life savings of a few hundred dollars and headed to Hollywood. Christian had many jobs, including mail-room clerk for a talent agency. His big break came when he played Ryan "Flyboy" Legget, the male lead, in a new show called Fame L.A. (1997) based on the hit movie and 80s TV show. Unfortunately, the show was canceled after 22 episodes. Christian's next role was on Aaron Spelling's Rescue 77 (1999), where he played Wick Lobo a.k.a "cowboy" because of his radical application of "gutter" medicine. Due to poor ratings, the show was canceled. Not to be defeated, Christian was soon cast as a production assistant in Edtv (1999) starring Woody Harrelson as well as a made-for-TV Western called Crossfire Trail (2001) with Tom Selleck.
Kane's TV resume also includes a leading role on Leverage (2008-2012) as Eliot Spencer. He also appeared in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, CBS series "Close To Home" (2005-2006) and a featured slot in the Stephen Spielberg/TNT miniseries "Into The West." In addition, Kane made his mark in big-screen films that include "Friday Night Lights" (2006); "Just Married," where he starred with Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy (2003); "Life Or Something Like It" (2002); and "Secondhand Lions," (2003) in which he was honored to play a young Robert Duvall.
Kane starred in "50 to 1" (2014), along side Skeet Ulrich and William Devane. Kane wrapped the first season of "The Librarians" in 2015 on TNT, which was produced by Dean Devlin who also produced "Leverage". The show has been picked up for a second season.
