Wiki Biography: A native of Canada, Gordon was born in Toronto and lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia before coming to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Always the class clown growing up, Gordon somehow knew he would turn his knack for making kids laugh (and driving teachers crazy) into a way of life. His first professional role came when he guest starred on CBC's "Street Cents" series, which was filmed in Halifax. After this experience, Gordon moved to Los Angeles with his father, to pursue a career in acting. He quickly found work, appearing in a national footwear commercial with basketball great Charles Barkley, and later appeared in the films "Sliders" and "American History X."
