Brooke Langton - Biography & Career
Born in Arizona and raised in Texas, Brooke began her career as a model, working primarily in Japan for eight months before moving to L.A. She got involved with theater in Portland and Texas before breaking into television on Baywatch and Beverly Hills 90210.
But her first real break came two years later when she was chosen to be leading lady to William McNamara in The Wyatts, an unsold Fox pilot which did run as a TV-movie. After appearing in such made-for-television movies as Moment of Truth: A Mother's Deception (1994) and Eye of the Stalker (1995), Langton landed a role on 90210's mature (at least age-wise) cousin, Melrose Place.
She had her first regular series role in Extreme (1995), as Sarah Bowen, a waitress turned rescue team member working for James Brolin. Langton also played the girlfriend to Jonathan Silverman's The Single Guy in several 1995 episodes. She went on to play a woman in the life of a young movie star in Matthew Harrison's Project 61 (lensed in 1996) and was the object of single night's competition between a young man and a cop in Reach the Rock (1998). Later gaining notice for her role in Doug Liman's breakthrough indie hit Swingers in 1996, Langton returned to television for her main role as Angela Bennett in the USA Network spin-off series The Net (1998-99).
After the cancellation of The Net, Langton began work on another television series, When I Grow Up (2001). Following the cancellation of that short-lived series, she returned to the big screen with roles in The Replacements (2000) as cheerleader girlfriend of Keanu Reeves, the festival-screened comedy Playing Mona Lisa, and Kiss the Bride.
Brooke lives in Los Angeles with her two dogs, and when she's not walking them, she's water-skiing, snowboarding or deep-sea diving. Although she had a brief affair with George Clooney in 1999, she's now engaged to Carl Hagmier. The couple plan to marry in February 2005.
