Wade joined the Marines just after high school, where he was promoted to Sergeant in just over three years. He went to college at California State University in Fullerton. After finishing in the military, Wade majored in radio, television, and film. Wade has always looked up to the action heroes of his childhood. Actors like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were major influences on Wade's life. In fact, he believes that part of the reason he joined the military was so he could prove to himself that he was a hero "in real life".
Before he worked on Heroes, Wade worked on Numb3rs, Frank TV, American Son, Lions for Lambs, Rendition, and The Perfect Girl.
- Wade shares the same first name as his character, Wade Winslow.
