Athletic Chris Bruno, best known for his role in the sci-fi series "The Dead Zone," might never have considered acting had he not been bitten by the bug in college after being injured in a skiing accident. Bored while recovering, Bruno auditioned and was cast in a play which prompted a passion for performing. Not that Bruno gave up sports immediately; after transferring into theatre arts, Bruno joined the baseball team, setting a school record as a starting pitcher. After graduation, Bruno built his acting portfolio in New York City with turns in the long-running soap operas "Another World" and "All My Children." Relocating to Los Angeles, he took a brave detour into stand-up comedy which opened the door to casting in the television sitcoms "The Nanny" and "Oh, Grow Up " in 1999. In 2002, Bruno settled in as a regular in "The Dead Zone," in which he played Sheriff Walt Bannerman, the husband of the former fiancée of the show's hero, played by Anthony Michael Hall. In 2005, Bruno had a defining moment when he acted with British acting great Anthony Hopkins and Diane Ladd in the sports drama feature "The World's Fastest Indian." Bruno later described the experience as one of "the most exciting jobs" he had ever had. In a total change of pace, Bruno starred opposite Brittany Daniel in the 2007 romance "Last of the Romantics." Bruno continued guesting frequently on television on shows, including "Numb3rs" and "Terriers."
