Hallisay was born in Washington, D.C. Hallisay graduated from Gonzaga College High School, a Roman Catholic Jesuit high school for boys, in 1996. Later, he graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Economics and History. After college and before moving to Los Angeles, he worked on Wall Street. He says, "I was slaving away at that and I had a really good time with it, but it got to the point where I said, "You know, I had always dreamed about seeing what acting was all about and television."
Hallisay has been on television since 2005. He made his first television appearances on Fox's The Inside, with Rachel Nichols and Adam Baldwin, as well as Lifetime's Strong Medicine, opposite Patricia Richardson.
On The CW's drama Privileged, Hallisay played Will Davis, a charming and wealthy Palm Beach bachelor who is delighted to learn that his next-door neighbors have hired a beautiful tutor named Megan Smith (Joanna García).
He made his feature debut in Erik MacArthur's Bottoms Up, starring Paris Hilton and Jason Mewes. Hallisay played the boyfriend to Hilton, a socialite who helps Mewes save his failing small-town restaurant. In 2011, Hallisay was cast in the third installment of Hostel where he played the lead character.
In 2012, Hallisay appeared in two episodes of The CW's series Ringer, and he signed a deal with Lifetime to appear as recurring character Kyle Parks in the drama series The Client List. On April 10, 2012, he was promoted to series regular starting in episode seven.
Hallisay began dating his The Client List co-star Jennifer Love Hewitt in March 2012. In June 2013, it was announced that Hewitt and Hallisay were engaged and expecting their first child. They married on November 21, 2013, and their daughter, Autumn James Hallisay, was born on November 26, 2013.
