Chance played football for Ithaca College before earning degrees from New York University and Columbia University in English and Writing. But, after losing a bet and in spite of a profound fear of public speaking, he entered an acting class. He was so terrified that he gave his first monologue (Brick from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) to a brick wall. While pursuing his acting career, he also entered the amateur boxing circuit in NYC, winning the Super-heavyweight division of the NYC Metros tournament. The following year, he entered the NYC Golden Gloves, winning his first fight by knockout, only to have to subsequently drop out of the competition to work on a film. He played the role of Lt. Col. Stephen "Godfather" Ferrando in HBO's "Generation Kill." On Memorial Day in 2009, he was appointed Honorary Marine by the Marine Corps League for his work in "Generation Kill." Chance remains forever indebted to the Marines for this honor, and regards them as the backbone of this country.
Most recently, Kelly has starred in films "American Sniper" (2014) and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (2014). He was cast as Detective Ed Cutler in the NBC series, "Aquarius," in 2015.
