Profile Bio Text
In 1997 Smith was discovered at a local mall in his hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa by a local talent scout who invited him to compete at the International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) Convention in New York City. At IMTA he was signed to appear in a Tommy Hilfiger modeling campaign, and then used the money he earned to pay for acting classes. Just three months later, Smith was in Los Angeles at a screen test for the 1998 WB pilot "Minor Threat". He landed that first audition and although the pilot was not picked up, Smith`s acting career was established. Since his start, Riley has gone on to do eight prime time network pilots, more than a dozen guest-starring roles and five series. He has appeared in over 15 movies, including the films Eight Legged Freaks, Not Another Teen Movie, Radio, (alongside Oscar Winners Cuba Gooding Jr and Ed Harris), Warner Bros. New York Minute with the Olsen Twins and the 2007 Sundance Grand Jury nominee Weapons. He has had recurring roles in the Emmy-nominated CBS series "Joan of Arcadia", the highly acclaimed Emmy-winning FOX show "24" and the cult favorite Judd Apatow creation for NBC "Freaks and Geeks", and co-starred in the short lived FOX show "Drive". Smith stars in two new films currently scheduled for release in 2010: the action thriller Gallowwalker with Wesley Snipes, and the military thriller MinuteMan. Riley currently resides in Los Angeles.
