Master of the deadpan, Dan Byrd debuted as a child actor on "Any Day Now" (Lifetime, 1998-2002), for which he won a Young Artist Award. He played Hilary Duff's aspiring actor best friend in the tween hit "A Cinderella Story" (2004) and starred as a major league baseball batboy on the acclaimed but short-lived series "Clubhouse" (CBS, 2004). Byrd portrayed Kathleen Quinlan's son in the horror remake "The Hills Have Eyes" (2006) and John Travolta's son in "Lonely Hearts" (2006) before returning to television to star in the Muslim exchange student dramedy "Aliens in America" (The CW, 2007-08) and to guest as a super-powered apprentice of Sylar (Zachary Quinto) on "Heroes" (NBC, 2006-2010). His profile enjoyed a massive boost when he was cast as Travis, the oft-embarrassed teenage son of Jules (Courteney Cox) and Bobby Cobb (Brian Van Holt) on "Cougar Town" (ABC, 2009-12; TBS, 2013-15), and he notched big screen success as a similarly intelligent but awkward teen in the Emma Stone smash "Easy A" (2010). Evidencing much talent for both drama and comedy, Dan Byrd delivered top-notch performances with a maturity and presence well beyond his years.
