Actor and Producer, Best Known for Role of Vince in "What I Like About You"

Nick Zano is an American actor and producer. He is best known for having played Vince in The WB's sitcom "What I Like About You." He got his big break on MTV, where he hosted that network's former infotainment program about the film industry, "Movie House," and briefly worked as an MTV News correspondent before he began an acting career. His recurring roles on television include Drew Pragin on "Melrose Place," Josh on "Cougar Town," Pete on "Happy Endings," P.J. Hillingsbrook on "90210," and Johnny on "2 Broke Girls."

Shortly after graduating from high school, Zano moved to Hanover, Pennsylvania and landed a job developing films and television projects for a small production company. During that time, he also was the associate producer for Living Position, a World AIDS Day television special hosted by Lou Diamond Phillips.

In 2003, he landed the role of Vince in the The WB's sitcom "What I Like About You," starring Amanda Bynes and Jennie Garth. Zano made his first appearance in the second season and remained until the fourth and final season, which ended April 24, 2006. Afterwards, he went on to host and executive produce his MTV reality show "Why Can't I Be You?"

The following year, Zano appeared alongside Haylie Duff and Frankie Muniz in the independent romantic comedy "My Sexiest Year." The film, which received mixed reviews, had its world premiere at the 2007 Hamptons International Film Festival. In 2008 he appeared in a supporting role opposite Drake Bell in MGM's teen comedy film "College." Zano also appeared in "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and "Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead" later that year.

In 2009, Zano co-starred in "The Final Destination," the fourth installment of the Final Destination film series.
