Identical twins (Bryan is the older by six minutes), they were born in Olympia, Washington and grew up in Bellevue, and first performed aged eight for their family. The brothers favorite food growing up was "chicken boobs and broccoli". In their early teens both were escorted home to their Mother for their role in "turfing" a neighbors lawn by driving a truck onto the lawn and spraying the neighbors house with mud. Both realized their mutual ambitions at college where they were Fraternal brothers at the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Bryan & Denny received Scholarships for football at the University of Washington after both were multi-year All League Selections for Interlake High School in Bellevue,WA.
One of the Twins first acting projects was an amateur film produced by a high school friend called "Tons & Tons of Guns". The film's simple plot centered around a man alone with a lot of guns, dressed in a two-thousand dollar suit, who fended off a home intruder in a pro-longed gun battle with ketchup blood special effects. Bryan and Denny were teen heart throbs in high school, college, and throughout their acting careers.
Bryan and Denny are widely considered to be that of a modern day Casanova. Bryan persuaded by his acting teacher and Denny at the Young Actors Space in Los Angeles.
Denny (sometimes credited as Denny Lee Kirkwood) made his screen debut opposite Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed (1999).
Both boys appeared in several television series, including The Nanny, Lois and Clark and Weird Science, but it was not until Bryan landed a leading role in the NBC series as 'Ben' in One World (1998) in which Denny had a recurring guest role (unsurprisingly as Ben's brother, but confusingly called Bryan) that both became well-known.
Bryan achieved fame on Nickelodeon's U-Pick Live as the super hero/zero "Pick Boy". After U-Pick's cancellation, he would go on to play Nick's "Cinema Spy", a spy who uncovers the latest news on movies.
Denny appeared in Groove, which was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2000.
In 2005 the twin brothers appeared on stage in Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Sam Shepard's True West, directed by Jerry Meadors at the North Theatre, a 488-seat venue in Virginia.
