Eddie McClintock started his show business career with a three year stint working behind the scenes as a production assistant. Following the advice of actors with whom he had worked (and deciding to abandon his PA career after an especially difficult producer publicly insulted him), the brown-haired and handsome former competitive wrestler decided to hone his talents in front of the camera, and quickly enrolled in acting classes. McClintock's training and affable man's man charm helped him land commercial work, most notably in a series of high profile Coors Light beer spots. He appeared on the highly-rated daytime drama "The Young and the Restless" (CBS) and made his primetime television series acting debut in early 1997, with a recurring role on Fox's "Ned and Stacey" and a guest appearance on CBS' "Diagnosis Murder." By 1998, McClintock was a regular on the Fox sitcom "Holding the Baby." This featured role as likable scamp Jimmy, the well-meaning but feckless brother of a suddenly single father, offered some exposure but the show's short run limited the extent of the actor's breakthrough possibilities. McClintock's real breakthrough came with a regular featured role on the NBC sitcom "Stark Raving Mad" (1999-2000), co-starring as the offbeat writing assistant to a successful but strange horror novelist (Tony Shalhoub). Neil Patrick Harris rounded out the cast as the harried editor, and the draw of both he and Shalhoub as former stars of popular series (along with a cushy pre-"ER" time slot) aided in gaining the show a larger audience and a longer run than "Holding the Baby" managed to secure. On the big screen, McClintock could be seen in several small scale independent features before appearing in Lawrence Kasdan's 1999 release "Mumford." He later landed a starring role in the romantic comedy "Moving August" (2000), playing a young photographer moving out of his apartment who falls in love with the woman moving in. After a brief appearance in Steven Soderbergh's pretentious return to indie filmmaking, "Full Frontal" (2002), McClintock was in an episode of the short-lived sitcom "The Pitts" (Fox, 2002-2003), then played one of many suitors vying for the affections of an up-and-coming book editor (Charisma Carpenter) in "See Jane Date" (ABC Family, 2003). McClintock had a more substantial part in "Picking Up and Dropping Off" (ABC Family, 2003), a romantic comedy about two single parents (Scott Wolf and Amanda Detmer) finding solace in one another after being divorced from their spouses. McClintock returned to regular series work with "Crumbs" (ABC, 2005), playing the estranged skirt-chasing brother of a failed Hollywood writer (Fred Savage) returned home to help run the family's restaurant. This was followed by McClintock's best-known role as one of the stars of science fiction cult hit "Warehouse 13" (Syfy 2009-14), a tongue in cheek series about government agents in charge of supernatural artifacts. During and after the show's run, McClintock continued working steadily as a guest actor on various TV series.
