New York City, New York, U.S.
|Spouse(s)||Dana Klein (m. 2005)|
Feuerstein got his break-through on television as a recurring character on the daytime soap opera Loving. When director Nancy Meyers was casting What Women Want, her daughter recognized Feuerstein from Practical Magic (1998), and insisted that her mother cast him. He was dubbed by wags as "Murderer of a thousand sitcoms" and "sitcom kryptonite", due to his lack of success in Fired Up (1997), Conrad Bloom (1998), The Heart Department (2001), Good Morning, Miami (2002), and 3 Lbs. (2007). Feuerstein reunited as a love interest with Practical Magic co-star, Sandra Bullock, in the film Two Weeks Notice, but all of his scenes were deleted.
He was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 2003.
He has appeared as the guest host of the June 14, 2010, edition of WWE Raw to promote the Royal Pains episode "Keeping the Faith". He was joined by Big Show, who teamed with him to defeat the tag team of Ted DiBiase, Jr. and Virgil. During the match he performed a botched variant of Scotty 2 Hotty's Worm on a prone Virgil to claim the win.
Feuerstein was born in New York City, the son of Audrey, a school teacher, and Harvey Feuerstein, a lawyer. He was raised in a Jewish family and celebrated becoming a Bar Mitzvah in an Orthodox synagogue. He was a wrestler in high school and won the state championship. Feuerstein attended The Dalton School, and graduated from Princeton University in 1993. He won a Fulbright scholarship and studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and at L'École Phillipe in France.
He married TV writer Dana Klein in 2005. They have three children: Lila Jane, Frisco Jones, and Addie.
