He has also done modelling work, and was a college football player prior to pursuing an acting career. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
While Ryan was born in Chicago, his family later moved to Glen Ellyn, Illinois where he would grow up, educated at Glenbard South High School, and after matriculating, would go on to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During his time there, he was a member of the Illinois Fighting Illini football team as a walk-on tight end, playing with his older brother who was a linebacker.
He eventually graduated from the school with a degree in speech communication, subsequently travelling in Australia and New Zealand for around six months, before moving to Southern California in hopes of pursuing an acting career.
McPartlin began his career with Abercrombie & Fitch for which he was initially a model for several years. One of his first acting appearances was in the television series “The Nanny”, appearing in a “Titanic” spoof playing a Leonardo DiCaprio-type character alongside Fran Drescher. His popularity soon increased when he was cast in the soap opera entitled “Passions”, in 2001, which followed the lives and adventures of the residents of Harmony, and in which he stayed for three years, then making an appearance in the series “LA 7”.
He would work with Fran Drescher once more in the sitcom “Living with Fran”, playing the much younger live-in boyfriend; the show started in 2005 but only lasted for two seasons.

In 2008, he appeared in the show “Mad Men”, playing a character who had an affair with Betty Draper, played by January Jones.
Ryan’s next notable role would come in the television series “Chuck”, cast in the role of Devon “Captain Awesome” Woodcomb; the series focuses on Chuck Bartowski played by Zachary Levi, an average computer whiz who receives an encoded email from an old friend which embeds a software program into Chuck’s brain containing the US’s greatest spy secrets. Due to this, both the NSA and the CIA assign him handlers to use him for various top secret missions. The show was initially in danger of cancellation after the second season, but fan support eventually helped it run for five seasons until 2011.
Ryan concurrently appeared in the music video “Stuck Like Glue” by Sugarland, in which he played a man being stalked. He also appeared in commercials for the perfume Boyfriend by Kate Walsh, then in 2012 began appearing in videos for the website LiveLifeLocal to help promote an active lifestyle.
