Nicholas Brendon stars in "Criminal Minds" on CBS in the recurring role of Kevin Lynch.

Nicholas Brendon, who received critical and popular acclaim for his portrayal of sensitive, wisecracking Xander Harris on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," turned to acting when his aspirations of playing professional baseball were squelched by a serious arm injury.

Nicholas first appeared on television in a handful of commercials and series guest spots. Feeling slightly disenchanted with Hollywood, he took a personal hiatus to play the "real life" roles of production assistant, plumber's assistant, veterinary janitor, food delivery guy, script delivery guy, day care counselor and waiter. He was fired from all but one of the aforementioned positions.

During his seventh year in the F&B (Food and Beverage service, for the layman), Nicholas decided to give acting another go; after two months of auditioning, he landed the role of Xander and hung up his apron for good. During his hiatuses from the show he starred in the motion pictures "Psycho Beach Party" and "Demon Island." Since Buffy wrapped, Nicholas has appeared in a recurring role on the hit drama "Private Practice," as a regular in the sitcom "Kitchen Confidential" and in the made-for-TV movies "Celeste in the City," "Relative Chaos," "My Neighbor's Secret" and "A Golden Christmas."

Offscreen, the Los Angeles native enjoys quality time with his loved ones, Dodger games, writing and cooking. His charitable activities include serving as honorary chairperson for the Stuttering Foundation of America's Stuttering Awareness Week, the first person to do so for three consecutive years.
