It was while he was attending Brown, however, that Barry first took an interest in acting. He was cast as a football player in a school production of "Picnic," and was instantly hooked. After graduating from Brown Barry enrolled in the Yale Drama School, where he learned to hone his craft as an actor. Upon graduating from Yale, Barry moved to New York City to embark on a career as a stage actor.
