Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Steven Strait achieved early success as one of young Hollywood's promising fresh faces, although sustained growth as an actor proved more elusive than many had envisioned. After a stint modeling for clothing lines like Hollister and studying acting at the revered Stella Adler Conservancy, the then high school graduate made his feature film debut as Warren Peace, the brooding son of a super-villain in the Disney action-comedy "Sky High" (2005). Buoyed by the movie's success, the handsome young actor was soon pegged as an up-and-coming leading man, landing several lead roles in quick succession. Despite the best of intentions, Strait's turns as an aspiring rock star in "Undiscovered" (2005), a teenage warlock in "The Covenant" (2006), and as a prehistoric tribal leader in the big-budget Roland Emmerich flop "10,000 B.C." (2008) all failed to establish him as a bankable star. A return to supporting roles, however, provided Strait with better quality of work, in such projects as the indie comedy-drama "City Island" (2009) and the Miami-set 1950s crime-drama series "Magic City" (Starz, 2012- ). Still in the nascent stages of his young career, Strait had learned a valuable lesson about placing the merits...
