Nicholas D'Agosto made his acting debut in "Election," one of 1999's most critically-acclaimed films. He attended prep school in the Omaha, Nebraska area, where the filming of "Election" was taking place, and only recently graduated when he landed the pivotal role of Larry Fouch, a committee chairman. During the 2000s, he began making guest appearances in various television series, including the popular "ER" and "Without a Trace." In '07, D'Agosto had a supporting role in the comedy-drama "Rocket Science"; he played Ben Wekselbaum, a former high school debate whiz kid who never quite got over failing to win the championship. For the role, he learned the art and skill of debating in order to give a more convincing performance. That same year, he appeared in multiple episodes of the television comedy "The Office" and the drama "Heroes"; in the former, he played Hunter, a youthful employee who may or may not be sleeping with his boss. Meanwhile, in "Heroes" he played West Rosen, a teenager with the ability to fly. Toward the end of the '00s, he once again portrayed a high schooler, this time in the comedy "Fired Up!," about male friends who sign up for cheerleader camp. The early 2011s saw him in "Final Destination 5" as the main character, a young man who narrowly escapes death, only to find it still pursuing him.
