From his work on Canadian children's television to the military drama "The Unit," Demore Barnes's career had a fantastic start in his teens, and his stock kept rising throughout his 20s and 30s as he made some savvy career moves. Barnes' career began after he drummed up the courage to audition for sketch-comedy platform "Squawk Box" on YTV--Canada's premiere children's network. Soon he was the host of the kids' show "Street Cents" on the CBC. After this his college ambitions were sidetracked by work in small roles on Canadian TV and features shot in his native Toronto, where he eventually played the part of Benjamin Hardaway on the legal drama "The Associates," a role that brought him two Gemini Award nominations. After the show ended in 2002, Barnes moved to Los Angeles. He initially struggled, but decided to return to his craft and take lessons with drama coach Larry Moss. In 2006 his hard work paid off when he nailed an audition with the legendary writer-director David Mamet and got the role of Hector Williams on "The Unit." His talent subsequently discovered by Hollywood, Barnes has been landing plenty of work since the series ended, primarily on prime time sci-fi mysteries such as "Supernatural" and J.J. Abrams's "Fringe."
