Before he became an actor, Baldoni was an athletic kid who dreamed of being a pro athlete, but a hamstring injury derailed this dream. Baldoni segued into acting, quickly landing small-screen guest appearances (JAG, Charmed) and TV-movie roles (he portrayed a date rapist in 2005's Spring Break Shark Attack). Later in 2005, he boosted his career by joining the cast of Everwood as sexy med student Reid Bardem. Branching out to work behind the camera as well, this former DJ (he worked at a local Top 40 radio station while in high school) has reconnected with his musical roots by directing music videos, as well as directing the 2010 Web series The Walk to Fame, which spotlighted music star Jason Derüo. Off screen, Baldoni leads a quiet life that includes adhering to the beliefs of the Bahá'i faith, and he has declared in interviews that he doesn't drink, take drugs or engage in premarital sex.
