Following that, Kerr played the lead role in the award-winning romantic comedy Confessions of a Sexist Pig opposite Traylor Howard and Lauren Graham. That same year, Kerr received critical praise as the lead in the TNT original feature film Legalese, with James Garner, Mary-Louise Parker and Kathleen Turner.

Raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Edward Kerr graduated from Vanderbilt University before deciding to pursue a career born from his love of film and television. After appearing in a variety of national commercials for Toyota, Chevrolet, Miller beer and Old Spice, Kerr got his first big break when an audition with an NBC casting executive led to a starring role in the miniseries, 'Secrets of Lake Success' in 1993.
He followed that coup with a starring role in the feature film, 'Above Suspicion,' with Joe Mantegna and Christopher Reeve. In 1994, he joined the cast of 'SeaQuest DSV,' playing special weapons and tactics expert Lt. James Brody. Most recently, he starred opposite Gina Gershon on the David Kelly series, 'Snoops.'
Kerr earned critical praise as the lead in last year's cable movie, 'Legalese,' featuring his 'Snoops' co-star Gershon, James Garner and Mary Louise Parker. He also received acclaim for his starring role in the festival comedy, 'Confessions of a Sexist Pig.'
Kerr lives in Los Angeles where he enjoys playing billiards, reading and participating in a wide variety of sports. His birthday is October 14.
