Before he starred in Home Improvement, he started in Denver with print and television advertising.

He was the second Home Improvement alum to make a guest appearance on the show. In 2005, Bryan appeared as Bryan Nolan in ESPN's TV movie Code Breakers. Bryan also guest starred in Cold Case (as the young murderer in the flashback scenes) and more recently as a young man hiring a hitman to kill his stepmother on the show Burn Notice. [3] In the 2008-2009 Knight Rider Series episode Knight and the City, Bryan appears as the spoiled young adult Terry Driscoll who attempts to drive out a bar owner so he can get the mineral rights and make millions.

Bryan's film roles include the school bully in the Sinbad comedy First Kid and the TV movie The Principal Takes A Holiday; as well as appearances in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift as Clay and as Eric in The Rage: Carrie 2.
