Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Not many actors can say their first acting role was as a lap dancer, and few can boast of having a successful side career as a celebrity trainer. Brian Patrick Wade, however, can do both. Wade worked as a celebrity trainer in image-obsessed L.A. until a client encouraged him to give acting a shot. After his debut in 2002 as a hunky lap dancer on "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-2012), Wade jumped to the big screen with roles in the gay romantic comedy "Latter Days" (2003) and the Kevin Costner naval drama "The Guardian" (2006). After marrying wife Jill, a competitive bodybuilder and nutritionist, in 2007, Wade appeared as Penny's jealous ex-boyfriend on "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS, 2007- ). Since his breakout performance as Capt. Craig "Encino Man" Schwetje on the HBO mini-series "Generation Kill" (2008), Wade landed numerous one-off roles and was cast as vicious Alpha werewolf Ennis on the popular "Teen Wolf" (MTV, 2011- ). Muscular and motivated, Brian Patrick Wade was hard to miss and even harder to ignore. Born on June 9, 1978, Brian Patrick Wade turned his youthful interest in working out into a successful business as an Los Angeles-based trainer.

Muscular and motivated, Brian Patrick Wade was hard to miss and even harder to ignore.

Born on June 9, 1978, Brian Patrick Wade turned his youthful interest in working out into a successful business as an Los Angeles-based trainer. His toned physique helped clinch his debut role as a lap dancer on "CSI: Miami," and before long Wade was landing steady supporting work. He appeared as one-half of a gay couple in "Latter Days," about a hard-partying player who falls for a Mormon missionary, and was cast in a minor role in 2006's "The Guardian." The following year Wade brought an arrogant jock mentality to his stint as Penny's dim-witted ex-boyfriend Kurt on the first season of "The Big Bang Theory," and proved a worthy foil for the timid Leonard (Johnny Galecki). In 2008 he landed a major break when David Simon cast him as a loudmouthed Marine Corps captain on "Generation Kill." The series, based on the embedded accounts of a Rolling Stone reporter in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, pushed the boundaries of Wade's talent and stamina. A steady stream of supporting work followed, and in 2013 the married father of two appeared as Ennis, a brutally skilled Alpha werewolf, on the teen-centric MTV reboot of "Teen Wolf."
