While attending high school in West Palm Beach, FL, Nick Zano developed an interest in acting. He and a group of friends were responsible for putting on a weekly 15-minute comedy sketch that was broadcast to the entire school. The weekly sketches gave Zano free range to explore his creative side, and were an immediate hit with his classmates. By the time graduation rolled around, Zano decided to pursue a professional acting career in earnest and moved to Los Angeles. He began selling shoes at the high-end boutique fashion store, Kenneth Cole, to pay the bills, where he was luckily discovered by an MTV executive. Zano was hired on as an MTV video jockey, where his prime responsibilities included celebrity interviews and covering the red carpet at award shows. Although thankful to have the job at MTV, Zano still hoped to become an actor.

His dream became a reality in 2003 when he landed the role of Vince on The WB sitcom, "What I Like About You." Zano appeared as Vince for the final three seasons of the show, before landing a recurring role on Courteney Cox's "Cougar Town" (ABC & TBS, 2009- ) in 2009. That same year, he landed the part of the jovial frat boy Hunt in the fourth installment of the "Final Destination" franchise. Over the next few years Zano nabbed recurring parts on the revamped versions of "Melrose Place" (The CW, 2009-10) and "90210" (The CW, 2009-2013), before earning legions of new fans for an 11 episode appearance on "2 Broke Girls." Zano played Johnny, a flirtatious graffiti artist on the show, thus giving him the opportunity to return to his comedic roots. In 2012 Zano landed the role of Pete on the ABC comedy series, "Happy Endings." However, the show was cancelled in May of 2013.
