Kerr grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of Exton, Pennsylvania. During his senior year of high school, he made his first dramatic performance playing Sir Edward Ramsey in his school's production of The King and I. He then attended the University of Vermont, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
After graduating, Kerr returned to Exton to start a marketing firm with his father, a financial advisor. When he discovered that he enjoyed making the presentations more than the actual business, he decided to move to New York and pursue acting.
