Actor who played Superman/Clark Kent in the popular TV series Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman (1993–97).

While at Princeton University, he set an NCAA record for interceptions and then signed with the Buffalo Bills, but a knee injury ended his pro career prematurely. He got his start in acting with a small role in his father's film The Stone Boy (1984) with appearances on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990). Film appearances include The Broken Hearts Club (2000). He portrayed accused murderer Scott Peterson in the 2004 TV movie The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story. He portrays Mormon leader Joseph Smith in the 2006 September Dawn, helmed by his father Christopher. Cain dated fellow Princeton student Brooke Shields for two years.
