Born and raised in New Jersey, Wolf was an athlete in love with the movies who dreamed of acting but never dared to consider it as a possible career. An old friend of his father's, who was a former actor, encouraged Wolf consider an acting career. After finishing school, Wolf enrolled at HB Studio in New York and decided to move west. He continued his studies in California with Robert Carnegie and Jeff Goldblum at Playhouse West.
Wolf landed the first job he ever auditioned for and has continued to work steadily. He went from commercials to guest spots on such television shows as Parker Lewis Can't Lose, The Trials of Rosie O'Neill and The Commish. He landed recurring roles on the series Saved by the Bell and Evening Shade, appeared in Kids Incorporated and Down Home, and played the lead in the NBC pilot Yesterday Today.
