Personal Quote:

(2010) The great thing about acting is that, until you're dead, you can do it. There are aspects to it that as time goes on you hope you get better at, and there are a lot of things that I'm excited to explore. See more »


Best known as the hunky on- and off- lawyer and paramour to Ally McBeal in the late 1990s, he is probably best remembered in films for his smallish, breakthrough role as an ill-fated inmate in the film The Shawshank Redemption (1994). Bellows got the part after Brad Pitt passed on it to do the lead in Legends of the Fall (1994). See more »
