Sisto was born in Grass Valley, California, the son of mother Reedy Gibbs, an actress and farmer, and father Richard "Dick" Sisto, a farmer, jazz musician, and educator. Sisto has a sister named Meadow Sisto, who is an actress mostly known for playing Caroline in the 1992 film Captain Ron.
Sisto's parent's divorced and his father was remarried to an artist named Penny Sisto. Sisto lived with his mother and sister, and has said that not growing up with his father made being a father to a boy intimidating.
Sisto played a killer in Hideaway, a rich brat in Clueless and White Squall, Jesus in the eponymous mini-series, a patient diagnosed with multiple personality disorder in the short film Inside, a former drug addict in Thirteen, and an abusive husband in Waitress. Sisto also played the character Billy in the HBO series Six Feet Under. He also appeared in the 2003 finale of the WB's Dawson's Creek; afterward he performed on the Los Angeles stage the role of bigoted Southerner Shane Mungitt in Richard Greenberg's play Take Me Out, about a baseball player who announces he is gay. Sisto also screen tested for the role of Jack Dawson in Titanic with Kate Winslet, but ultimately lost out to Leonardo DiCaprio.
Besides acting, Sisto has worked behind the scenes. In 1998, he produced the unreleased movie Taken, together with his friend Ethan Embry. He also produced the films Three Women of Pain and Paranoia 1.0. In April 2003, he started his own production company, Dima Entertainment. In 2006, he appeared on Broadway in Festen. In the same year, he starred in the short-lived NBC drama series Kidnapped. In July 2007, Sisto was featured in the Maroon 5 video for the song "Wake Up Call". He played a man who was sleeping with the girlfriend of Adam Levine.
In 2008, Sisto joined the cast of the crime drama Law & Order as Detective Cyrus Lupo, replacing Milena Govich's Detective Nina Cassady as the partner of Jesse L. Martin's Ed Green. He had previously appeared on the show as a lawyer in the previous season's finale. Sisto stayed on for the series' final three seasons and his character became partners with Anthony Anderson's Detective Kevin Bernard after Martin left the series near the end of season eighteen.
