Amell appeared in two episodes of the fourth season of Queer as Folk as the Liberty Ride spinning instructor in 2004. Amell played Adam in the first season of the television series Dante's Cove; he was replaced in the second season by Jon Fleming. In 2007, Amell won a Gemini Award for his guest-starring role on ReGenesis. The same year he was also nominated for a Gemini Award in the Best Ensemble Cast Category for Rent-a-Goalie.
In January of 2011, it was announced that Liam McIntyre had won the role of Spartacus in the Starz original series Spartacus: Vengeance. Amell along with Aiden Turner were among the other top three contenders for the part.
On October 2, 2011, season 3 of HBO's series Hung premiered with Amell starring as busboy-turned-prostitute Jason, a younger rival "ho" to Thomas Jane's Ray Drecker. He also appeared as Jim in the fourth season of 90210.
Amell announced on October 28, 2011 that he had just finished filming the Christmas episode of New Girl with Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield. He touches on the experience of filming his first "network half hour comedy" in an interview with Daemon's TV. On November 9, 2011, Amell was announced for the recurring role of Scottie, a paramedic on ABC's Private Practice.
On November 6, 2014, Amell joined comedy Whatever Makes You Happy based on the novel-of-the-same-name by William Sutcliffe.
Amell will play Casey Jones in the sequel to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film in 2016, as well as co-starring with Susan Sarandon in the film adaption of the novel, Whatever Makes You Happy. A release date is yet to be announced with filming commencing in June 2015. 
Professional wrestling websites began reporting in late-May 2015 that Amell is tentatively set to wrestle Stardust at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 23, 2015 at Brooklyn, NY's Barclays Center.
Amell married American actress and model Cassandra Jean on December 25, 2012 in a private ceremony in the Caribbean, and for a second time in New Orleans on May 26, 2013. The couple have a daughter, born in 2013.
