An accomplished dancer, Salisbury would often treat The Nanny studio audiences to improvisational routines when the cameras were not rolling.

Salisbury was a contestant on the hit quiz show Jeopardy! where he competed in a very special Teen Celebrity Jeopardy! against Kirsten Dunst and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Salisbury won with $1 but received $15,000 for his charity while Dunst and Levitt each received $10,000 for theirs.
In 2005, he had a minor role as a train expert on the episode "Sabotage" of the series Numb3rs. In August 2006, Salisbury was featured in Domino's Pizza commercials featuring Fudge-ums, Domino's then-new mini-brownies.
