Born and raised in New York, Adam dreamed of a professional baseball career and had even received scholarship offers to play in college. Unfortunately, injuries prevented him from realizing his baseball dreams. But all was not lost: in high school Adam had dabbled in acting, even winning an award from his theater class. After graduation (and a brief detour into the life of a NY stockbroker), he focused his attention on his passion: performing.
Within months of touching ground in LA, Adam landed a string of television roles beginning with a starring role in the Steven Bochco-produced “Brooklyn South,” playing Officer Hector Villanueva. Other early television credits include “All Souls” for UPN, WB’s “Felicity” and Showtime’s “Resurrection Blvd.” In 2002, Adam was elevated to what could be called heartthrob status, when he co-starred in the final season of the cult hit “Roswell.” This led to his most high-profile television role to date: Eric Delko on the internationally acclaimed CBS hit drama “CSI Miami,” which recently ended its successful run after ten seasons, culminating for Adam in a 2012 Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Actor Action. During the last two seasons of the show, Adam also had the opportunity to write and direct two episodes - “Hunting Ground” and “At Risk.” In the final season of ABC’s “Ugly Betty” he starred in a major recurring role, as sexy bad boy Bobby Talercio. He was also recently seen in fun guest star turns in cable hits “Necessary Roughness” and “Psych”, and in a major recurring role on the Fox comedy “The Goodwin Games” opposite Becki Newton and Scott Foley. Adam will soon be seen in the new CBS show “Reckless” starring alongside Cam Gigandet and Anna Wood.
On the big screen, Adam recently starred with Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey in Warner Brothers’ hit film Magic Mike, which was directed by Steven Soderbergh, which was a massive critical and box office success, garnering 11 Award Nominations and 5 Wins. He was also seen starring alongside Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson in Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself, for which he won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture. He just recently wrapped the indie Lovesick, opposite Matt LeBlanc, and is currently shooting Screen Gems’ About Last Night, alongside Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, and Paula Patton. His other film credits include Caught in the Crossfire, A Kiss of Chaos, Let the Game Begin, Bohica, Take, and Love and Debate. The sexy actor has been featured in People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" issue and in People en español magazine's "25 Most Beautiful People," as well as in Lionel Richie's video "I Call It Love" and Jennifer Lopez's breakthrough video for "If You Had My Love."
In his free time, Adam enjoys learning to play the guitar, along with writing music and an occasional poem. He loves to stay in shape with a mixture of training regimens including weights, cross-fit and boxing. On the rare occasion he is particularly stressed you can probably find him at the batting cages smashing some balls! Baseballs. Adam currently divides his time between Los Angeles and New York, where his family still resides.
