IMTA alum Nicholas Purcell in The Troop and The Surrogates

Be sure to watch Nicholas Purcell in a new episode of The Troop tonight on Nickelodeon! Nicholas Purcell stars in his first major role as Jake, a typical teenager whose ambition is to create his own comic book. When his school counselor (John Marshall Jones) asks him to join The Troop, he is teamed with the smart, athletic and popular Haley (Gage Golightly) and the annoying paranormal expert Felix (David Del Rio). The three are given the task of protecting the world from the monsters that walk among us. Nicholas competed at IMTA in New York in 2005!
Since attending IMTA, Nicholas has been booking industrials, commercials, and roles in the feature films Fever Pitch and Gone Baby Gone, as well as on TV with a guest-starring role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent and a recurring role on As the World Turns. Following the debut of The Troop, he will also appear in the new Bruce Willis sci-fi thriller Surrogates. Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, a cop (Willis) is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others’ surrogates. Nicholas plays a commando named Pulaski.
