This perpetually goateed small-screen player initially pursued a music career before landing a role on the series Kids Incorporated while still a teen. A plethora of TV guest spots followed but, like a latter-day Ted McGinley, every time Balfour signed on to a show as a regular cast member, it bombed (Veritas: The Quest, Hawaii, Sex, Love & Secrets, Conviction). He did, however, do well with recurring roles, particularly on Six Feet Under and 24. Off screen, the terminally hip actor is the lead singer of the band Fredalba.
