Brian Goodman stars in "Rizzoli & Isles" on TNT as Lt. Det. Sean Cavanaugh, who is a product of the hardscrabble back alleys of South Boston. His knowledge of the street and his history as a detective make him the perfect choice to be Commander of the Homicide Unit. Fiercely loyal to Detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) because he lived what she faces, Cavanaugh has her back when the brass would have prefer to have her head.

At age eight, Brian Goodman saw the television movie "Brian's Song"

and just knew acting was something he could do. Raised in Boston, he began looking locally for acting opportunities. He heard about a casting call and went in for an audition and was given his first role in "Southie," a drama about a gang in South Boston. He went on to land speaking roles in the feature films "Snitch" (a.k.a. "Monument Avenue") and "In Dreams."

Goodman moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and pursued his acting career. Eventually, his fortunes turned, and he landed a role in the film "Scenes of the Crime." This brought him to the attention of producer Rod Lurie, who championed him for a role in his prison drama "The Last Castle."

Since then, Goodman has appeared in "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," "Munich," "Annapolis" and "Catch Me if You Can." His other features include "Blow," "The Black Rose," "Just One Night" and the short film "Orphan." His television credits include "Revenge," "Castle," "Lost," "Line of Fire," "Boomtown" and "Thieves."

Goodman's favorite role is that of being a dad to his sons, Mark and Brian. Goodman works out and enjoys a variety of sports as participant and viewer: tennis, basketball, golf, softball and ice hockey. He resides in Los Angeles.
