The son of actress and extra Doris Hancox, he grew up on film sets in Los Angeles before stepping in front of the camera himself.

He appeared in his first television commercial at the age of five and later attended LA’s High School for the Performing Arts.

After completing his studies, he attempted to make his mark in Hollywood while trying his hand at stand-up comedy.

The 52-year-old married his wife Alvina in September 1999 and they have two children together; Kyra, 27, and Nathan, 23.

The mother of two filed for divorce in September 2015 after the couple had been separated since April of the previous year.

But she withdrew her petition after they reconciled in January 2017 — until Alvina filed for divorce for a second time on March 25, 2022.
