While his standout performance as Gabe, the troubled boyfriend of Claire Fisher (Lauren Ambrose), on the acclaimed HBO series Six Feet Under may have made a striking first impression on many viewers, the truth is that Eric Balfour had been acting in television for nearly a decade following his small-screen debut as a member of Kids Incorporated in 1991. A Los Angeles native whose spiritual family used to hold Lakota Indian sweat lodges in their backyard, Balfour is also a talented musician who once took to the stage with fellow actor Brittany Murphy as members of the band Blessed With Soul. Rising through the television ranks after his debut on Kids Incorporated, Balfour made his feature debut in the 1996 film Shattered Image. A high-profile role in the pilot epsiode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, plus supporting roles in such teen-oriented films as Trojan War (1997) and Can't Hardly Wait (1998) were quick to follow, and a key performance in the 1999 family drama Scrapbook gave audiences their first true look at his dramatic abilities. Though subsequent supporting roles in What Women Want (2000) and America's Sweethearts (2001) didn't find Balfour climbing the credits as much as he may have deserved, his breakthrough role in Six Feet Under gave his feature career a notable shot in the arm. After appearing in the short-lived television series Veritas: The Quest and the feature Secondhand Lions, Balfour could be seen running scared in the Hollywood horror remake The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003). He continued to make supporting appearance in films, but really focused more on television; Balfour had a recurring guest spot on The O.C. and a major arc on 24, plus appearances on shows like Life on Mars and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In 2010, he joined the cast of the SyFy supernatural series Haven.

Kemper Hardesty says: We're not gonna drive around this town with a dead girl in the back of our van!

Luda May says: Young man...what you do is your own business.

Luda May says: Young man, what you do is your own business.

Kemper Hardesty says: I'll tell you this much...the next hitchhiker is shi*t out of luck.

Morgan says: What are we gonna do?

Kemper Hardesty says: I don't know...uh...we gotta call the cops, I guess.

Morgan says: Um, yeah, on a list of bad ideas, that one goes, way up there. Oh, police officers, please, as you inspect a crime scene, which is now our van, please, ignore the colorful pinata, filled with marijuana, in case you happen to come across it, because it played no part, you know, whatsoever in the demise of this unfortunate, young, woman.

Erin Hardesty says: Baby, will you please tell me that we did not go to Mexico to buy pot?

Kemper Hardesty says: We did not go to Mexico to buy pot.

Morgan says: Ok, the fact that 33,000 Americans each day are infected with a sexually-transmitted disease, and two-thirds of them are just about your age.

Kemper Hardesty says: Hey, Morgan. How are you the expert on the dumbest shit?

Jarrod says: Scaffolding! It's the only way down! C'mon, go!

Jarrod says: What are you going to do when all the blinds fall down? It's not exactly like we have a lot more bedsheets!
