He attended and studied acting in the Quad C Theatre program at Collin County Community College in Plano, Texas, from 2003 to 2005. In addition, Bean also studied acting at SUNY Purchase.

Prior to pursuing acting, Bean was a carpenter. He has not given out details about his previous jobs and also his early life. 

Bean debuted his acting career in the short film Neptunus Rex as Beliveau in 2007. After that, he didn't appear again until 2014, when he was cast as Greg Knox in the hit series Power.

Since then, Bean has been featured in several movies and TV series such as Allegiant (film 2016), Bad Vegan and the Teleportation Machine (movie 2016), Michael and Michael Are Gay (TV mini-series 2018), Here and Now (TV series 2018), Swamp Thing (TV series 2019), Malignant (movie 2021), and more.

However, Bean is best known for his role as Stanley Uris in the 2019 horror film It Chapter Two and as Laird Stabler in the 2021 movie King Richard.

Notable Performance on 'Swamp Things'

In 2019, Bean began appearing as Alec Holland on the DC superhero series Swamp Things. The one-season series presented the story of Abby Arcane, played by Crystal Reed, who returns to her hometown of Marais, Louisiana, to face her past. There, she encounters Alec Holland, played by Bean, a scientist who is assassinated after uncovering a criminal ring in the swamp.

Alec is later reincarnated as the Swamp Thing, played by Derek Mears, an elemental being tasked with defending the swamp, Marais, and the natural world.

Although the show was based on the original story and had a significant fanbase, it had less chance of renewal from beneath it before it even aired. Due to budget concerns with tax credits, the episode count was reduced from 13 to 10 in the final month of filming. After that, production revealed that the show would be canceled due to difficulties.

When DC Universe went down, The CW bought up the streaming rights, making it the only DC Universe original not to be renewed in 2020.

'It Chapter Two' and His initial fears

It Chapter Two is a horror movie and the second part of the It film series. The movie was first released on 26 August 2019 and is based on Stephen King's 1986 novel of the same name. 

It Chapter One shows the story of a group of children haunted by Pennywise the Clown and forced to confront their demons to defeat him.

Likewise, Chapter Two is set twenty-seven years after the first film's event, the Losers Club's first encounter with Pennywise. They've grown up and moved on until a phone call brings them back.

In the film, Bean played the role of adult Stanley Uris, portrayed by Wyatt Oleff in the first part. 

Bean's character, Stanley, struggles the most in the following years after the initial incident. He is the most likely of the group members to insist that everything isn't real, which makes him especially vulnerable to Pennywise's gimmicks. 

Furthermore, when he watched the 1990 series version of 'IT', ironically he got terrified by the horrors of the drama.  

His recent movie 'King Richard'

King Richard is a drama film written by Zach Baylin and directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green that was first released on 2 September 2021.

The plot revolves around Richard Williams, played by Will Smith, who is determined to write his two daughters, Serena and Venus, into history. Richard forms his daughters' tenacity and keen intuition on the tennis courts of Compton.

Bean portrayed the role of Laird Stabler, a tennis pro who worked with the Williams sisters.
