In addition to his film work, Cain was also seen on television in the Fox movie thriller The Glow. This film comes on the heels of 2002's TBS thriller Christmas Rush.
Cain, a native of Malibu, made his feature film debut in 1984 in The Stone Boy. He would later attend Santa Monica High School where he focused on football instead of acting. He went on to Princeton University and set an NCAA record for interceptions in a season. Shortly thereafter, he signed with the Buffalo Bills, but a knee injury quickly ended his professional career. He turned back to acting and starred in Best Man, Flight of Fancy, and the telefilms Dog Boy, Rag and Bone, Futuresport as well as the Hallmark Hall of Fame film Runaway. Cain also spent a season playing Rick on the popular series Beverly Hills 90210.
Cain, not only an athlete and actor, is an entrepreneur who founded Angry Dragon Entertainment, which produces Ripley's Believe It or Not, TBS' highest rated original series.
