A likable supporting player on television with a distinctly outlaw, countrified look, actor-singer Christian Kane found success on two series with cult followings - "Angel" (The WB, 1999-2004) and "Leverage" (TNT, 2008-12) - while enjoying a second career as a country musician with several albums under his belt. Powerfully built and blessed with "bad boy" good looks, Kane frequently played determined young men; his Lindsey McDonald on "Angel" was a lawyer for an evil firm whose passion for a human-turned-vampire made him turn his back on his career to find love, while Eliot Spencer on "Leverage" frequently settled all scores by means of his physical strength. Kane's vocal talents, which he honed on Los Angeles stages as frontman for the band Kane, were also tapped on occasion to provide soundtrack material and even live performances on various shows. While Kane worked steadily in features, including "Secondhand Lions" (2003) and "Friday Night Lights" (2004), television was his most consistent showcase, and his work there developed a considerable following. His major label debut album, The House Rules (2010), also made a splash on the country charts, and confirmed Kane's status as a bona fide double threat in the entertainment business.
