Born on Jan. 7, 1969 in Warren, OH, Lee was raised by his doctor father and his homemaker mother who was also a born-again Christian. When he was nine years old, his family moved to Boston, MA and eventually settled in Los Angeles when he was an adolescent. Throughout his youth, Lee developed a strong aptitude in music and mathematics, nourishing a particular gift for the piano. His advanced musical skills led him back to Ohio and its heralded Oberlin College of Music, where he actually became interested in acting after an unsuccessful foray from music to dance. Lee switched majors once again and decided to pursue a career back in Los Angeles upon graduation, while taking jobs in retail and working at a coffee shop along the way. It was around this time that his relationship with his strict parents became especially strained after he came out as a gay man, leading to a years-long estrangement that persisted throughout his career.
In the early part of his career, Lee's acting résumé amassed a variety of stage, commercial, television and film work, while performing in the children's theater company, Imagination Company, and working as a casting assistant. In 1994, he managed to land a guest starring role on the Harry Anderson sitcom vehicle "Dave's World" (CBS, 1993-97), but would have to wait another five years before being seen again on screen. Following a guest stint on the obscure Judge Reinhold series "Redemption High" (1999) and a small role in the Playboy movie "Word of Mouth" (1999), Lee began landed more notable appearances on primetime television with episodes of "Son of the Beach" (FX, 2000-02), "Lucky" (FX, 2003), "Twins" (The WB, 2005-06), and "What About Brian" (2006-07). He also appeared in numerous stage productions, including the AIDS drama "Queen of Angels," as well as "Taming of the Shrew" and "Letters to a Student Revolutionary."
In 2005, even as he was in the midst of a five-year stint as a casting director, Lee landed the role of Lloyd Lee, the openly gay assistant to über-agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) on "Entourage" (HBO, 2004-2011). Lloyd was introduced in season two as Ari's new assistant and immediately made an impression with his ability to endure his boss' unrelenting insults about his sexuality and ethnicity while willingly embarking on all manner of crude and unethical requests - all with the hopes of one day becoming an agent himself. Lee proved to be a popular edition to the show and was elevated to series regular in the third season, ultimately staying on until the finale. Following his six-year run on "Entourage," he joined the cast of the family comedy, "Suburgatory" (ABC, 2011- ), which focused on a single father (Jeremy Sisto) who moves from New York City to the suburbs with his not-too-thrilled daughter (Jane Levy). Lee played Mr. Wolfe, Levy's good natured and openly gay high school guidance counselor. Meanwhile, Lee made a cameo as a judge for Nationals on the popular "Glee" (Fox, 2009- ).

|Lee on anti-gay discrimination in the acting world: "I can't be too upset about that. For me, what is most important is being honest with the world and myself. This is who I am, world. Take it or leave it. If you want to leave it, that's fine." - from Emmy magazine, Issue No. 3, 2012|
