With a name like Christian Kane in the entertainment industry, it may be hard to find him via social media, especially when World Wrestling Entertainment -- an interactive, trending, social media giant -- features two superstars called Christian and Kane.
Christian Kane is not a pro wrestler/sports entertainer, but he is an athletic, multi-tasking pro entertainer. He is a talented actor, chef, musician, singer-songwriter, stuntman currently co-starring in the adventure series “The Librarians” (TNT). That faction includes Rebcca Romijn, John Kim, Lindy Booth and John Larroquette (a possible closet wrestling fan).

Prior, Christian Kane co-starred in the successful five-year series “Leverage, an action-adventure, comedy-drama on TNT, which is now running on syndication. He said there was a chemistry, and it was like family, which made the group work well together.
Christian Kane, 41, participated in a media event on Thursday, Oct. 1 at The Ocean Manor off the beach to promote Wizard World Fort Lauderdale, which is Oct. 2-4 at the Broward County Convention Center.
This former high school wrestler and football player, who does his own stunts, would enjoy working with Dwayne The Rock Johnson on a TV show, series or movie. He spoke very highly of the former WWE champ not just as an actor but as a person. Christian Kane is genuine, a good guy, too. A wrestling fan growing up, he also discussed pro wrestling, Dr. Death Steve Williams, MMA and more.
Furthermore, Christian Kane wants to make sure everything is cool with WWE’s Kane because of name duplication. For instance, Christian Kane’s southern rock band is simply titled Kane.
Hailing from Norman, Okla., Christian Kane will be near his hometown when he participates in Wizard World Tulsa Oct. 23-25. WWE Phenom The Underatker will also be there, and maybe The Deadman can mend fences, if any, between his TV brother and Christian Kane.
