A native of Chicago, Illinois, Nico Tortorella is an actor who is perhaps best known for his recurring role in Make It or Break It, a show that follows a group of teen Olympic hopefuls as they train and prepare for their day in the spotlight. Though he’s relatively a newbie in the entertainment field, he’s already booked a role in Joel Schumacher's 2010 film Twelve, which tells the story of a young drug dealer watching his high-rolling life dismantle in the wake of his cousin's murder. The movie is based on the novel by Nick McDonell and also stars Emma Roberts, Keifer Sutherland, 50 Cent, Ellen Barkin and Zoe Kravitz.
On The CW drama The Beautiful Life, Nico Tortorella appeared as successful fashion model Cole Shepherd, alongside Mischa Barton, Corbin Bleu and Sara Paxton. At present, he stars on the FOX crime drama series The Following, which stars Kevin Bacon.
