Actor Nico Tortorella currently stars as a lead in Darren Star’s hit comedy series, YOUNGER, now in Season 4 and garnering its highest ratings ever. He was previously a series regular opposite Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy on Fox’s hugely successful series THE FOLLOWING. Feature films include his starring role in Stephen Sommers’ ODD THOMAS opposite Anton Yelchin, Willem Dafoe and Tim Robbins. Joel Schumacher was the first to identify Nico’s natural and raw talent, casting him in two of his films, TWELVE and TRESPASS. Nico also shot the HBO/Mike White pilot MAMMA DALLAS as well as the lead role of “Carson” in the independent “fictional documentary” cult film HUNTER & GAME. A longtime lover of theater, last year found Nico on stage tap dancing opposite YOUNGER co-star Sutton Foster for four of her tour dates with The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as well as making his theater debut in Jordan Jaffe’s play CRUDE, earning rave reviews for his portrayal of Jaime, most notably from the NY Times. Tortorella just starred in MENENDEZ: BLOOD BROTHERS for Lifetime co-starring Courtney Love and is now in Season 2 of his hit podcast THE LOVE BOMB, in which he explores the all-encompassing topic of love and the labels associated with them. Having launched just last year, it’s already ranked #1 in the “Personal Journals” category and sits in the Top 50 iTunes Top 200 podcasts with over 3 million downloads.
