If actor John Hensley hadn't found such unexpected success in acting, he would have gladly become a horse wrangler, but lucky for him, during a week-long trip to New York following his high-school graduation, he met his future manager and the rest, as they say, is history. He was cast on the series Nip/Tuck as troubled teen Matt McNamara almost immediately, staying with the showuntil 2011 before moving on to roles in Fifty Pills, Teeth, and Love, Gloria.
