At the age of 11, he performed a soft-shoe routine with Bob Hope as part of Hope?s USO tour.

He majored in English literature at the University of Pennsylvania and then attended law school at Georgetown University. It was his career as a lawyer that brought him to Los Angeles when he accepted a position with the LA office of Chicago-based Baker & McKenzie. The international firm?s Los Angeles office was closed soon after. Rather than continue his career in the law, he decided to focus all of his time on acting.

Other guest appearances on TV programs include Melrose Place, Ellen, Friends, and Nip/Tuck, among others.

He also appeared in the independent films Special Delivery, The Contract, Fits and Starts, and Marie and Bruce.

In 2007, Gant, Chad Allen and Judith Light acted and produced Save Me. The movie about the ex-gay movement was distributed by Mythgarden, the production company formed by Gant, Allen, and Christopher Racster in 2004.
