BIOGRAPHY

After establishing himself as a talent to watch in episodes of "Life Goes On" (ABC, 1989-1993) and "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox, 1990-200), actor Dean Cain made his name by donning the red cape for "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" (ABC, 1993-97). For several years, opposite co-star Teri Hatcher, Cain made the widely-played role his own. By opting to portray both Superman and Clark Kent as hunky heartthrobs in a contemporary romance, Cain helped pave the way for the mainstream acceptance of comic book superheroes. It did not hurt that he was a good-looking former athlete whose freak knee injury was all that stood in the way of a pro football career. After "Lois & Clark" left the airwaves, Cain receded from the headlines, though he continued to work, hosting a revamped "Ripley's Believe It or Not" (TBS, 1999-2004), exploring his villainous side in the thriller "Out of Time" (2003), and playing the murderous, deceitful Scott Peterson in "The Perfect Husband" (USA, 2004).
