Regen Wilson is an actor, originally from Atlanta, Georgia, the son of an airline pilot and naval aviator and his wife, a former flight attendant. Wilson started acting in the theatre at an early age and otherwise spent his extracurricular youth as a competitive swimmer, equestrian and occasional pianist. Following in the footsteps of his father, Wilson opted for military service after graduating from high school in Danville, Kentucky, and chose to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While there, he devoted any spare time he had to building up the neglected cadet theatre company, eventually expanding it to include filmmaking.
Graduating from the Academy in 1998, Wilson went on to serve eight years in a variety of assignments in different locales. During this time he continued acting, primarily in theatre and independent film. Leaving the Air Force in 2006, Wilson dedicated himself to growing as an actor in film, television, commercials, voiceovers and theatre. When not acting, he can be found indulging his passion for history or, better yet, lost in the woods somewhere hiking. He lives in Los Angeles.
