His Third Watch character featured in a crossover episode with ER, entitled "Brothers and Sisters" (Season 8, Episode 19).

Wiles was born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in Lenexa, Kansas. He found employment with local Park and Rec department, having passed up the opportunity to play college football.

In 1990, Wiles began to pursue an interest in film-making, working on the set of the film Mr. and Mrs. Bridge, filming on location in Kansas City.

Not long after, the Stephen King tele-movie Sometimes They Come Back came to town and he worked on the crew as well as appearing in scenes as an extra.

In the summer of 2002 he appeared in the Cape Playhouse production of Mass Appeal alongside Malachy McCourt, and in 2003 he was in Imua!

Upon completion of the final season of Third Watch, Wiles began work on his independent film Lenexa, 1 Mile (2006) which he wrote and also directed.
