BIOGRAPHY:

Audiences will likely best remember Gorham from his role on ABC's "Ugly Betty" as Betty's boyfriend, Henry, as well as the critically-acclaimed CBS Series Harper's Island. Prior to that, he was a series regular on the NBC comedy Out of Practice opposite 'Henry Winkler', 'Ty Burrell', 'Stockard Channing' and 'Jennifer Tilly' and also starred as Dr. McCabe opposite Neal McDonough in NBC's Medical Investigation. Other television credits include recurring roles on both Felicity and Party of Five.
Gorham also has guest-starred on such series as CSI, Without a Trace, Boomtown and Buffy the Vampire Slayer before transitioning to leading man in Jake 2.0. In the acclaimed action-adventure drama series he starred as Jake Foley, a computer technician whose life is drastically changed when he is accidentally injected with microscopic machines that invade his nervous system and endow him with superhuman abilities. Gorham also starred in the sci-fi adventure series Odyssey 5 with Peter Weller.

Gorham made his feature film debut in acclaimed director Danny Boyle's A Life Less Ordinary, with Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz. In direct contrast, he starred opposite Anne Hathaway as a missionary who heads to Tongan Islands in the film The Other Side of Heaven for producer Gerald Molen. He recently completed starring roles in four independent films, the latest being The Ledge opposite 'Liv Tyler', 'Patrick Wilson' and 'Terrence Howard'.

In addition to acting in television and film, Gorham also completed a guest star performance role in the Off-Broadway production of Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell at the Minetta Lane Theatre.

A native of Fresno, CA, Gorham, attended UCLA. While there, he met his wife, actress Anel Lopez, Gorham with whom he now has two sons and a daughter.


TRIVIA:
  • Although he doesn't actually play the trumpet, his brother does, so he was guided in his determination that his fingering would at least appear authentic in _The Other Side of Heaven (2001)_ (qv). Likewise, he does not speak Tongan, but he practiced hard, and his coach declared that he had perfect pronunciation. The cast and crew were quite impressed and, in this way, he set the work ethic for the entire shoot. Gorham was cast in the starring role as a Mormon missionary although he is not part of the LDS church in real life; in the director's words, Gorham was chosen because "he has a very gentle soul.".
  • In the fourth grade he starred as the Mad Hatter in 'Lewis Carroll' (qv)'s Alice Through the Looking Glass, for which he won the Best Actor award that was usually reserved for sixth graders.
  • First job in the business was as an intern on _"Baywatch" (1989)_ (qv).
  • Announced that he and his wife, 'Anel Lopez Gorham' (qv), are expecting their third child, a girl, in January 2009.
  • He proposed to his wife, 'Anel Lopez Gorham' (qv), on a bench outside of Tiffany's on Rodeo Drive, where he had made a picnic breakfast so that they could have a Breakfast at Tiffany's-style meal before going in and buying their wedding rings. They were college sweethearts.
  • While still in high school, he won Young Male Talent of the Year at an International Modeling Talent Association competition in New York City.
  • Attended high school at Roosevelt School of the Arts and graduated from UCLA with a BA in Film & Theater arts. While in college, he participated in many sports including martial arts, stage combat, fencing, roller-blading, and ballroom dancing.
  • Two sons with wife 'Anel Lopez Gorham' (qv): Lucas Gorham (born 2001) and Ethan Gorham (born 2003).
