Wes Brown, born October 13, 1979, in Baton Rouge, Lousiana, USA, is an American actor.

While growing up, Brown was into sports. Then at Louisiana State University he was required to take a theater class and inadvertently had his first taste of acting. He had done some print modeling for extra cash — driving to Houston and Dallas for photo shoots — but had never been on a film set before he began appearing in local commercials and independent films.

Then in 2005, Brown moved back to L.A. permanently. That year he appeared opposite Rob Lowe in the series “Beach Girl.”

An appearance on CSI: Miami and a few independent films followed, but his starring role in “True Blood” in 2009 was Brown’s first shot at extended and widespread exposure when he got the part of Luke McDonald.

In 2012, Brown was cast as series regular on the NBC primetime show “Deception.” He also recurs in Season 5 of CW’s “90210.”
