Elvis Nolasco      

Actor Known for "American Crime"

Elvis Nolasco – Born and raised in New York City, was drawn to entertainment from a young age. He spent evenings dancing to Latin music in his Dominican family home. His love for salsa music led to an interest in break dancing, where he spent nights dancing with the legendary break dancers Soul Sonic Rockers. His ability and style would later help to open doors to establish a solid career that spans film, theater and television.

He studied acting in Philadelphia and began winning a succession of leading roles in theaters around the city including the Arden, Freedom Theater, Walnut Street Theater and American Musical Theater Festival.

It was not long before Elvis was picked to co-star in the hit comedy “I Like It Like That” with Lauren Velez and Academy, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress, Rita Morena. After that he was casted by Spike Lee for the film “Clockers” with Mekhi Phifer and Delroy Lindo. Elvis began building a line of great performances in several independent hits, including his critically acclaimed role in the film “In Search of a Dream,” the first all-Spanish speaking cast sanctioned by the Screen Actors Guild and the number one grossing independent Latino film.
