Dean Cain Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jul 31, 1966
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Black-haired, muscular, and handsome, television and film actor Dean Cain is perhaps most famous for having played Superman on the hit TV show Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Born in Mt. Clemens, MI, Cain's interesting looks come from his Welsh, French, and Japanese heritage, while his last name comes from his step-father, director [[Performer~P83827~Christopher Cain~christophercain]] ([[Feature~V26948~The Karate Kid~thekaratekid]], [[Feature~V49296~That Was Then, This Is Now~thatwasthenthisisnow]]). His mother moved Cain and his older brother to Los Angeles when they were children. He attended Santa Monica High school, where he rubbed shoulders with other young stars-to-be, including the Lowe brothers Rob and Chad, Sean and [[Performer~P55920~Chris Penn~chrispenn]], and [[Performer~P89157~Emilio Estevez~emilioestevez]]. An honor student and talented football player, Cain attended Princeton University where, as a first string football player, he set two N.C.A.A. records. In 1988, he graduated from Princeton with a B.A. in history and a contract as a free safety for the Buffalo Bills. A knee injury sustained during pre-season camp ended his football career. He returned to California, studied acting, and got his professional start appearing in numerous television commercials. After trying his hand at screenwriting for a while, he found work guest starring on various series, including Life Goes On and Beverly Hills, 90210. He had made his film debut with a small role in The Stone Boy (1984). A few small movie roles followed, but Cain didn't have a major role until he played an ex-Green Beret in [[Feature~V158808~Best Men~bestmen]] (1998). ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
