It was a long and windy road that led Regan Burns to his current status as a Hollywood actor/director/host/pitchman. During his junior year at Radford University in Virginia, he made the wise decision to relinquish his gymnastics scholarship and pursue the life of a thespian. Most of this decision was based on the fact that gymnasts don't get residual checks. After graduating with a theatre degree, Regan attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Upon his completion, Regan said, "California is the place I want to be." So he loaded up his truck and…Well, you know the story.
Regan’s long list of TV guest appearances includes It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, NCIS: Los Angeles, Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, Weeds, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Without a Trace, CSI, Supernatural, and Las Vegas, just to name a few. He’s also had recurring roles on Reno 911, Titus, Once and Again, The Ellen Show, Mind of the Married Man, Rodney, and more. In the feature world, he has starred in critically-praised festival indies like God Bless America (directed by Bobcat Goldthwait) and Wrong (directed by French wunderkind, Quentin Dupieux). A veteran of 150 plus commercials, Regan starred in famous campaigns for Capital One, Enterprise, Burger King, and AFLAC.
Regan hosted two seasons of the Spike TV game show Oblivious and three seasons of AMC’s Cinemania, and he appeared regularly as a personality on AMC’s The Movie Club and VH1’s I Love the… series.
