Born in 1963 in Nashville, Tenn., Denton worked for years in theater before making the jump to television.
After accepting various small gigs, his role as Teri Hatcher's love interest Mike Delfino on ABC's Desperate Housewives landed him under the Hollywood spotlight.
Denton married personal trainer Erin O'Brien in December 2002, and the couple have a son and a daughter. Fun fact? When the actor was in high school, he dated country music singer Deana Carter!
