Life and career[edit]

Nicholas was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. His mother, Marla, is an acting school administrator and professional dancer.[1][2] He is of Italian (from his paternal grandfather), German, Irish, and English descent.[3] Nicholas has six siblings.

Nicholas is known for his roles in Rookie of the Year (1993) and American Pie (1999). He appeared in the four theatrical films of the American Pie franchise, as the character Kevin Myers, played Frank Sinatra, Jr. in the Showtime movie Stealing Sinatra, and co-starred in Halloween: Resurrection. In 2009, he played the role of a rookie cop in the drama Life Is Hot in Cracktown.[4] He played Eugene in Nicole Holofcener's Please Give, which won the 2011 Indie Spirit Robert Altman Award.[5] He had the role of Abbie Hoffman in the film entitled The Chicago 8. He also appeared on an episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy as Jeremiah. "I started acting when I was 6 years old. I have always enjoyed making people laugh or smile or think," he says.[citation needed]

Nicholas released his debut album, Without Warning, on January 15, 2008,[6] and his follow-up album, Heroes Are Human, on June 1, 2010. His third album release is a self-titled EP, released March 20, 2012, in which the first single is also on the American Reunion soundtrack album.[7] About his music career, he has said that "I started playing guitar when I was 14. I couldn't stop playing... I am very blessed and thankful for all that has happened."[citation needed]

He has most recently appeared in Mallory Knox's music video for their song "Wake Up".

On June 30, 2010, Nicholas threw out the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field and sang the seventh-inning stretch. Nicholas married Colette Marino, known as DJ Colette in 2007. The couple welcomed their first child, a boy named Nolan River, in 2011.[8]
