New Hampshire actor getting plenty of exposure

[Thanks to Bethany Constance of a713 production for sending along this news.]

Nicholas Purcell of Concord, New Hampshire, is a teenager with an acting resume many dream of!

After returning from New York in June from the filming of New York, I Love You with Russian director Andrei Zvyagintsev, Nicholas was cast for another principal role as Pulaski in Disney/Touchstone Studios' The Surrogates starring Bruce Willis. The film is directed by Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3, U-571, Breakdown). New York, I Love You will be released in February 2009, while The Surrogates will hit theaters in November 2009.

Nicholas also booked a guest starring role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent and worked along side Chris Noth and Alicia Witt, in addition to landing the recurring role of Ty on the daytime soap opera As the World Turns.

This past February he traveled to Vancouver to shoot the lead in a pilot The Troop for Nickelodeon. We truly believe this is only the beginning of Nick's journey and that the New Hampshire film community will be seeing much more of him on the big screen!

Nicholas is managed by Bethany Constance of a713production and co-managed by Kathleen Longsderff of New England Models Group.

He is represented by CESD in NY and LA.
