Biography

Touted by TV Guide as one of the most promising young actors in Hollywood, Eion (EE-un) Bailey first drew attention portraying the troubled Alan Strang in a Pasadena Playhouse revival of "Equus" in 1997. Although a native Californian, the actor was atypical of what that label generally conjures. Possessing curly black hair, deep blue eyes and a broad open face, he was hardly the blond surfer dude one usually associates with Southern Californians. Bailey moved to the small screen appearing as a bully who is possessed by a hyena in an episode of the popular "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" before appearing as the former boyfriend of reformed nymphet Jen (Michelle Williams) in a two-episode arc of "Dawson's Creek". The actor was impressive in his series debut as the conflicted, unemployed roommate in the short-lived Fox drama "Significant Others" (1998). While the show failed to catch on with viewers, Bailey emerged unscathed, landing a supporting role in the Brad Pitt-Edward Norton vehicle "Fight Club" (1999) and poised for a long and fruitful career. He followed up by playing a college student who romances a ballerina in "Center Stage" and portraying Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner in Cameron Crowe's autobiographical "Almost Famous" (both 2000).
