Matt Lanter was born in northeastern Ohio in 1983, but later moved to Atlanta, Georgia when he was eight years old. He spent much of his time playing sports including baseball, football, and golf. His love for baseball led him to a position as a bat boy with the Atlanta Braves. After high school, his interest in the film and television industry created a strong desire to pursue acting. While studying at the University of Georgia, Matt decided to move to Los Angeles to follow his dreams of making it a career.

Shortly after his move, Matt landed a recurring role on Fox's "Point Pleasant" (2005). He also has appeared on ABC's "8 Simple Rules" (2002) and HBO's "Big Love" (2006), as well as few modeling jobs and a couple of national commercials. Matt is currently working on the ABC Hit show "Commander in Chief" (2005).

In addition to acting, Matt enjoys being outdoors, playing golf, and relaxing at the beach.

In summer 2006, Matt had the opportunity of starring in a theater production of Without Walls alongside Laurence Fishburne at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. That same year, he managed to earn a role on Heroes. He played Brody Mitchum, opposite Hayden Panettiere's character, Claire Bennett. Being a part of Heroes proved to be a great opportunity for Matt as the show had high ratings, which allowed Matt to gain more exposure. Fortunately for Matt, his role on Heroes paid off. He managed to snag guest roles on Shark, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Grey's Anatomy and Monk.

The year 2008 proved to be one of Matt's successful years. He made his debut on the big screen as a voice actor. He portrayed Anakin Skywalker in the animated film, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a side story that is set between Star Wars II and Star Wars III. He also managed to get a role in Disaster Movie, playing Will, who was the boyfriend of Vanessa Minnilo's character.

More recently, he has signed on to play Liam, a character who's storyline will be entangled with AnnaLynne McCord's character, Naomi. Matt is expected to make his debut in the popular teen series next February. His movie, Sorority Row, will also be released in October 2009.

Despite being busy working in the industry, Matt says that he tries to stay as humble as possible. When he's not acting, he enjoys being outdoors, playing golf and relaxing at the beach. With more acting roles coming his way, there is definitely more to expect from this Ohio native.
