Bryce Owen Johnson (born April 18, 1977)[1][2] is an American actor.

Early life[edit]

Johnson was raised in Reno, Nevada before moving to Denver, Colorado at 5 with his newly divorced mother along with his two brothers where he graduated from high school in 1995. Afterwards, the family relocated to Sioux City, Iowa where Bryce attended acting classes at the local community college before deciding to embark on his acting career.

Career[edit]

He headed for Hollywood at 19 after his mother encouraged him not to join the navy. While working odd-jobs to pay the bills he searched around looking for auditions and enrolled at Pasadena's American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He was receiving minor work until his big break came in 1999 when he was cast as Josh Ford in The WB's Popular. Also in that year he was part of the cast of MTV series Undressed.

After the show ended in 2001, he continued on the platform of more teen-oriented projects with minor guest roles on Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls and other teenage shows.

By the time he approached his mid 20s, he said he wanted to branch into more adult and challenging roles trying to stay clear of the teen genre.[3] 2004 saw him playing a gay cheerleader in Bring It On Again and starring in two films screened at the Sundance Film Festival, Home of Phobia and the Harry + Max. In 2003 he returned to television in an unaired series, Still Life, and made appearances on What I Like About You, Nip/Tuck, and House M.D while doing voice-over work for video games.

In 2006 he starred in another controversial film, Sleeping Dogs Lie, with Melinda Page Hamilton which also screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

He is a series regular on Lone Star portraying Drew Thatcher, and also had a recurring role as Detective Darren Wilden on Pretty Little Liars.

In 2011, Johnson starred in MTV's Death Valley as UTF police officer Billy Pierce. That same year, he played a supporting role as Chad in the dark romantic comedy Hit List. He guest starred in the Glee episode "Previously Unaired Christmas" in December 2013, playing Cody Tolentino.
