Chris Bruno is an American film and television actor best known for his role as Sheriff Walt Bannerman on the television series The Dead Zone.

Born in the small town of Milford, Connecticut, Bruno attended college in Vermont, where he was a member of the school's ski team while studying Psychology.

During his sophomore year, he was temporarily sidelined with an injury, so he decided to try something different. He auditioned for and was cast as the lead in his first play, Machiavelli's The Mandrake.

Having discovered a new passion for the arts, Bruno transferred as a theatre major to the State University of New York at Stonybrook, where he was a walk-on starting pitcher for the school's baseball team (his fastball was clocked at 90mph), which had a 6-0 record his senior year.

Upon graduation, Bruno moved to New York, where one year (and several bartending jobs) later, he was offered a two-year contract on Another World. During his first year on the show, Bruno was nominated for a Soap Opera Award as Outstanding Newcomer.

A few years later, he was cast in the role of Michael Delaney on All My Children, which won an Emmy the year he joined the cast.

Bruno eventually moved to Los Angeles, where he began performing stand-up comedy at The Improv. He soon landed guest-starring roles on the sitcoms Suddenly Susan, The Nanny, Jesse, and a recurring role on Alan Ball's series Oh Grow Up.

In 1998, Bruno and his brother Dylan were cast in Lorenzo Carcaterra's dark and gritty New York cop show The Force.

During the summer of 2004, Bruno produced and starred in the feature film Last of the Romantics and appeared in an episode of the series 1-800-Missing.

He also acted in the feature film The World's Fastest Indian opposite Anthony Hopkins, which Bruno says is "one of the most exciting jobs" he's ever done.
