^ I told you he was such a cutie! :heart:

The other day I was searchiin' about him & I got some more info about him ...

Matthew Mackendree Lanter, or better known to fans as Matt Lanter was born on April 1, 1983 in Massillon, Stark County, Ohio, to Joseph Lanter and Jana Burson. He also has a sister named Kara Day. She is a teacher at Rea View Elementary School in Waxhaw, Union County, North Carolina.

When Matt turned 8 years old, he and his family moved to Atlanta, Fulton County in Georgia. Growing up, the blue-eyed actor spent most of his time playing baseball, football and golf. His love for baseball led him to scoring a position as a bat boy with the Atlanta Braves.

In the year 2001, he graduated from Collins Hill High School. Unfortunately for him, his parents got divorced when he was a senior at Collins Hill. Matt majored in Sports Business at the University of Georgia, but eventually moved to Los Angeles to follow his dreams of being part of the showbiz industry. He attended the University of Georgia after attending a community college for two years.

He first gained the attention of fans when he was selected as a contestant in the 2004 reality television series, Manhunt. The show revolved around contestants having to compete with each other in a series of modeling events. Although he did not win the competition, Matt succeeded in making the show’s top 10.

It didn’t take too long before critics started noticing Matt. He started landing guest roles on 8 Simple Rules, HBO’s Big Love,and Point Pleasant, as well as some modeling jobs and national commercials in the country. Matt’s big break came along when he starred as Horace Calloway, the John F. Kennedy-like first son on the short lived ABC political series, Commander in Chief in 2005. However, most people do not know that he was in fact, not in the original pilot. Instead, Matt was a re-cast.

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 is playing Liam on 90210, a character who’s storyline is entangled with AnnaLynne McCord’s character, Naomi. 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.
