Nicholas Brendon

Biography: Nicholas Brendon is best known for his stint as Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He is currently starring on FOX's Kitchen Confidential. He turned to acting when his aspirations of playing professional baseball were squelched by a serious arm injury.
He first appeared on television in a handful of commercials and guest-starring roles including Married…with Children and Dave's World. Feeling slightly disenchanted with Hollywood, he took a personal hiatus to play the "real-life" roles of medical student, production assistant, plumber's assistant, veterinary janitor, food delivery guy, script delivery guy, day care counselor and waiter (at approximately 13 different establishments). During his seventh year in the food and beverage industry, Brendon decided to give acting another try. Soon after, he landed the role of Xander and hung up his apron for good - he hopes.
His feature film credits include Psycho Beach Party and the horror film Pinata (aka Demon Island), in
