Biography

Tall, lissome, and lovely, Gabriel Mann has lent his blonde choirboy looks to characters more suited to a confessional than a choir. A native of Connecticut and a former model, Mann first made an impression on art house audiences as Radha Mitchell's ineffectual, easily dismissed boyfriend in High Art (1998). He then reached a wider audience with his role as a wormy, self-serving prep school boy in the Farrelly brothers' Outside Providence in 1999; that same year, he starred in the independent romantic comedy No Vacancy, playing one of the denizens of a run-down Los Angeles motel. The young actor had a number of projects lined up in 2000, including Cherry Falls, yet another entry into the teen horror genre. Revolving around a small town terrorized by a serial killer intent on murdering all of the town's virgins, the film cast Mann as the boyfriend of a young woman (Brittany Murphy) whose status as the sheriff's daughter and a practicing virgin made her an appealing target for the killer. Following Cherry Falls Mann would drop in on Josie and the Pussycats in 2001, and turn up in the romantic comedy Summer Catch later that same year. Subsequent roles in The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy kept Mann busy over the next few years, and on the heels of a recurring role on AMC's Mad Men in 2008 the youthful actor became increasingly active on the small screen -- first as a the voice of Bruce Banner on the animated series The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and later as a regular on ABC's Revenge. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
