He appeared on the cover of the November 10, 2004, issue of Daily Variety.


In 2005, Bruce landed his first role as Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) Agent Martin Kail on 24: Conspiracy, a mobile-only spin-off of the television series 24. That same year, he guest-starred for two episodes on the NBC daytime soap opera Passions and appeared as a waiter on the television sitcom Joey. In 2006, he appeared on The Sopranos and on the reality television series Breaking Up with Shannen Doherty. He appeared as Sam Marquez (Vanessa Marcil)'s secretary, Anthony, on Las Vegas in 2007.

In 2007, Bruce landed his most notable role of Chris Hughes on the CBS daytime soap opera As the World Turns. Bruce became the eighth actor to play the role, succeeding Bailey Chase, who played the role from January 29, 2003 to January 20, 2005. Bruce made his debut on October 25, 2007. In August 2008, it was announced that Bruce was downgraded to recurring status. He made his final appearance on October 15, 2008.

In May 2015, after leaving Orphan Black, Bruce said: "I count my lucky stars every day to have been blessed with this experience. Paul was definitely a fun character to play, I really had fun researching him and researching military guys and how they operate and how they think. It was just a really, really life-altering experience that I'll never forget."
