Annable is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors, with a combination of talent and affable charm that have won over both fans and critics. He was seen in the popular ABC series Brothers & Sisters, opposite Sally Field, Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths and Matthew Rhys. Produced by Thirtysomething star and Alias producer-director Ken Olin, the drama lasted five seasons on ABC. Before Brothers & Sisters, Annable was perhaps best known for his role on Fox's critically acclaimed Reunion, a complex serial mystery spanning 13 years in which each episode revealed a yearly clue to a controversial murder.
Annable was seen in the New Regency romantic comedy film What's Your Number, with Anna Farris, directed by Mark Mylod, released in September 2011. He also shot the comedy film You May Not Kiss the Bride, co-starring with Katharine McPhee, Mena Suvari, Rob Schneider, Kathy Bates, Tia Carrere and Vinnie Jones, and was seen in director Nick Hurran's film, Little Black Book.
In 2008 Annable participated in an all-star cast benefit of Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman's Award-winning play, You Can't Take It With You. Directed by the late Nora Ephron, the cast included Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Martin Short, Annette Bening and William Shatner. The one-night-only event benefited the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television and played at the campus' Royce Hall.
An avid sports fan, Annable grew up in Walden, a small town in upstate New York, playing baseball, rugby and hockey. He attended college at SUNY Plattsburgh, where he was a member of PSTV (Plattsburgh State Television), and studied acting at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse in NY with Richard Pinter.
Philanthropically Annable has been a supporter of Project A.L.S., and is an Ambassador for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, as well as for Stand Up2 Cancer. He also is involved with The Art of Elysium, The V Foundation for Cancer Research, The USO and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Annable and his wife, Odette, were married in 2010.
