“It had always been a childhood dream to become an actor,” Brian told the Chicago Tribune in 2008, three years into his acting career. “I also liked history and economics, so I pursued them in college.”

“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.’ So, I moved out to Los Angeles six years ago and gave it a shot.”

Unfortunately, the series was canceled after one season and Hallisay was back to getting just guest roles. His next main role came in The Client List, a Fox drama that premiered in 2012.
