Warren was born in South Bend, Ind., the youngest of three children. At South Bend Central High School, he earned a scholarship to the University of California, Los Angeles, where he majored in television, radio and film. He was an All-American basketball player at UCLA under the legendary John Wooden, serving as captain for two years and helping to guide his team to two NCAA national championships.
Warren received his first acting break when a job as technical consultant for the basketball sequences in Drive, He Said led to a co-starring role in the film. He proceeded to establish a small advertising agency in Los Angeles but eventually decided to devote more time to acting. He did a series of commercials before landing a regular role in the series Sierra. A guest-starring role in the series The White Shadow, on the CBS Television Network, led to a job in the pilot of the series Paris, also on the Network, through which he met Steven Bochco.
Warren lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Jenny, and their four children, Kekoa, Cash Garner, Grayson Andres and Makayla. His birth date is March 5.
