Upon graduating from high school, Perry intended to enroll at the University of Southern California. However, when he was offered a leading role on the television series, Second Chance, he seized the opportunity to begin his acting career.Perry appeared in the hit comedy film The Whole Nine Yards, as the neighbor of a hit man played by Bruce Willis. His other feature film credits include _Fools Rush In (1997)_, A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon, She's Out of Control and Parallel Lives. He also co-starred with Chris Farley in the buddy comedy Almost Heroes and in the romantic comedy, Three to Tango, opposite Neve Campbell. Perry currently resides in Los Angeles.
