Brian Patrick Wade
Not many actors can say their first acting role was as a lap dancer, and few can boast of having a successful side career as a celebrity trainer. Brian Patrick Wade, however, can do both. Wade worked as a celebrity trainer in image-obsessed L.A. until a client encouraged him to give acting a shot. After his debut in 2002 as a hunky lap dancer on "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-2012), Wade jumped to the big screen with roles in the gay romantic comedy "Latter Days" (2003) and the Kevin Costner naval drama "The Guardian" (2006). After marrying wife Jill, a competitive bodybuilder and nutritionist, in 2007, Wade appeared as Penny's jealous ex-boyfriend on "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS, 2007- ). Since his breakout performance as Capt. Craig "Encino Man" Schwetje on the HBO mini-series "Generation Kill" (2008), Wade landed numerous one-off roles and was cast as vicious Alpha werewolf Ennis on the popular "Teen Wolf" (MTV, 2011- ). Muscular and motivated, Brian Patrick Wade was hard to miss and even harder to ignore.
