Who is Marc Blucas?
Born on 11 January 1972, in Butler, Pennsylvania, under the earth sign of Capricorn, Marcus Paul Blucas is a 47-year-old American actor, and former basketball player at the collegiate level. Even though he is one of the most famous movie and TV stars from the 2000s, acting was neither his first nor his second career choice. When he realized he wasn’t going to make it to the National Basketball Association (NBA) level, he devoted himself to law. Upon understanding that a career as a lawyer wasn’t for him either, acting was next in line. Marc’s most notable role was, of course, the one of Riley Finn in the immensely popular teenage fantasy show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”. Fans also know him as Matthew Donnally from “Necessary Roughness”. Despite not landing any major Hollywood roles, Marc is beloved by fans all over the world for his charisma and uncanny way of stealing the show.

Cleaning out boxes and came across this circa 2002 picture of myself. A few things stood out—1) the amazing hand drawn artwork by makeup artist #jaywejebe 2) how fun it was to play such a different role than I’m usually cast, and 3) the distant memory of being able to play 1 pickup basketball game and then eating a 5 cheese quesadilla with sour cream—as an appetizer—and not even give it a second thought. #youth #goodolddays #nowigottawarmup3hourstoplay5minutes #canstillshootthough #doggotextrawalkswiththislook #quesadillasaregood
Early Life and Education
Marc was born into an American family in rural Pennsylvania, to parents Walter Joseph and Mary Catherine.; they are now divorced. His father is an accomplished former athlete who played football for the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), and was eventually inducted into the IUP Athletics Hall of Fame. In 1974, the family moved to Erie, Pennsylvania where Walter Blucas worked as a teacher before eventually rising all the way to the position of Superintendent of Schools for the District. There is no information about his mother’s vocation. Young Marc had all the positive influence in the world, and so followed his father’s footsteps and became an athlete. Unlike his dad, he thought basketball was the right choice for him. It turns out that it really was, as Marc was the best player on the Girard High School team, and earned all-state honors, in addition to a state championship title. After matriculating in 1990, he accepted a full scholarship to play basketball at Wake Forest University. Before graduating in 1994, he played one season alongside future superstar, Tim Duncan. After coming to terms with the fact that he wouldn’t make the NBA, Marc still wanted to play professionally.
Despite most young basketball players wanting to play solely in the NBA, there is a myriad of other opportunities to play professionally around the world. Thus, Marc accepted an offer to play for the Manchester Giants of the British Basketball League, but he had a rather unremarkable season, which lead him to rethink his goal of having a basketball career. Working in law was appealing to him, but this plan ended up flopping as well. At one point, Marc realized that he could utilize his God-given charm and talent for acting to become a star. While in Britain, he took acting classes, and slowly began to make a name for himself. After gaining some experience in taking on a variety of roles, he moved back to the US.
Blucas made his acting debut in the TV movie “Inflammable”, which aired in 1995. The film was generally considered a failure, but it gave Marc much-needed practical experience. His athletic background gave him the opportunity to play in two essential 1990s basketball movies – “Eddie” and “Pleasantville”. These two films propelled Marc to stardom, but it was his role of Agent Riley Finn in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” that made him a true star. He appeared in a total of 31 episodes, and left a lasting mark on both the show and its fans. Even though he wasn’t a main character, he contributed to several important plotlines, and being on such a popular show opened up a myriad of doors for him. Thus, Marc appeared in “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” in a minor role, but his significant appearances include “Castle”, “Body of Proof” and “Necessary Roughness”. In recent years, he has remained active, with parts in “Killer Women”, “Underground” and “The Fix”. Marc became a beloved member of the acting community due to his ability to excel under any circumstances, and take on any role, no matter how different it is from his previous experiences.

Marc Blucas married producer, journalist and presenter Ryan Haddon on 25 July, 2009, in an intimate ceremony on Marc’s farm in his home state of Pennsylvania. Around 100 of their closest friends and family members were present. There is also a funny story involving their honeymoon. Just two days before they were about to depart for their dream vacation, Marc was called in for an audition for “Knight and Day”. He had thoughts about abandoning the casting, but Ryan insisted that he made his career a priority, and so they delayed their honeymoon. The couple has one daughter together, in addition to being parents to Ryan’s two children from her marriage to Christian Slater. Her marriage to the famous film star was a turbulent one, as she was even arrested for domestic violence on one occasion. Allegedly, the incident took place in Las Vegas, when the couple were in a heated argument, during which Ryan hit Slater with a glass, requiring him to get 20 stitches to patch up the wound. She was in jail for 12 hours before posting bond.
