Brown is perhaps best known for his role on HBO’s hit vampire series, True Blood, in which he played Luke, a former football player with a vengeance against vampires.  He has had guest-starring roles on CBS’ CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds, NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, 911 and on ABC’s Desperate Housewives, along with recurring roles on the NBC medical drama Trauma, The CW’s 90210 and Hart of Dixie, ABC’s hit Private Practice and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and the Harrison Ford led film Call of The Wild.  He also portrayed Disney’s legendary Gaston on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.  Additionally, Brown was a series regular on the Lifetime network’s Beach Girls starring Rob Lowe, as well as on NBC’s Deception.

A favorite of Hallmark Channel fans, Brown has starred in some of Hallmark’s highest-rated movies, including Haul Out the Holly and Haul Out the Holly: Lit Up.

Finally, Brown is playing the lead role in the upcoming independent feature Inheritance, a tense family drama centered on the dysfunctional relationship of two sisters.
