The actor followed a relatively non-traditional path to Hollywood. A West Virginia native whose parents were a small-town Baptist preacher and an elementary school teacher, Stewart graduated college with a degree in business marketing, but after appearing in a number of local theater productions, he decided to put his business career on hold to pursue his artistic passion.
Stewart moved to Manhattan and was soon discovered by television producer John Wells, who gave the aspiring actor his first big break by casting him as a rookie police officer navigating the mean streets of New York in the final season of NBC's THIRD WATCH.
Next, Stewart quickly landed a starring role opposite Courteney Cox in the FX Networks series DIRT. His emotionally nuanced performance as an actor on the precipice of fame was singled out by TV critics.
Stewart made his mainstream feature film debut opposite Brad Pitt in David Fincher's THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON. His other credits include recurring roles on NBC's long-running series CRIMINAL MINDS and last season's NO ORDINARY FAMILY, for ABC.
A happily married father of two, Stewart is also a competitive snowboarder, boxer and avid outdoorsman.
