After studied acting he began auditioning for television and film roles. On one of his first auditions, he impressed producer Brenda Hampton that she hand-picked him to star as Ricky Underwood in the ABC Family television series, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager".
In the January 2010 spread of VMAN, he gave an interview saying that the celebrities that he would like to be compared with are Leonardo DiCaprio and Emile Hirsch. He also said that despite liking television roles, he'd like to appear in movies and plays. It was announced on February 24, 2013, that Kagasoff had been cast as Alex in the FOX pilot Delirium, based on the novel by Lauren Oliver.
In September 2014, Daren joined the cast of the Red Band Society, an American comedy-drama television series on Fox for the 2014–15 American television season developed by Margaret Nagle. The series premiered on September 17, 2014.
