Kyle Secor is an American actor best known for his role as Det. Tim Bayliss on the television drama series Homicide: Life on the Street, from 1993-1999.
He is also known for his role as Rod Calloway in Commander in Chief, from 2005-2006.
Secor has had major recurring roles in the television series Santa Barbara (his screen debut in 1986), Middle Ages, Party of Five, City of Angels, Philly, Hidden Palms and Veronica Mars.
He has made numerous guest appearances in television show, including St. Elsewhere, NYPD Blue, Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, and Without A Trace.
In the early 1980s he was drawn to acting as a career and moved to Los Angeles, California, but he continued to supplement his income with various jobs on the side, including teaching yoga, waiting tables, working in movie theatres, and cleaning houses, until 1986, when he was offered his first major television role.
This came in the form of the character Brian Bradford on the soap opera Santa Barbara, soon followed by a stint on the hospital drama St. Elsewhere, in which he played Bret Johnson, a patient dying of AIDS.
After working in several movies, including Heart of Dixie (1989), City Slickers (1991), Delusion (1991), and Untamed Heart (1992), Secor was cast as Detective Tim Bayliss on Homicide: Life on the Street in 1993, a role which he would fill for the remainder of the series.
Throughout most of this time, Secor was paired on screen with actor Andre Braugher, who played his partner Detective Frank Pembleton.
Though the show was an ensemble work, Secor's character was placed in a particularly pivotal role, as the series began its first episode on his first day of work in the Baltimore homicide unit.
Spring of 2004 brought Lifetime's Infidelity opposite former Philly costar Kim Delaney, and the Disney-ABC mini-series A Wrinkle In Time featuring him in the role of Hank.
He had a recurring role as Jake Kane in the 2004-2005 freshman season of the show Veronica Mars and guest-starred in the series finale.
Secor has been married to actress Kari Coleman since January 28, 2002. They have two children.
