Most recently he completed shooting starring roles in two films for Screen Gems Fired Up and Mardis Gras. Fired Up will be released in February of 2009 and Mardi Gras will be released in August of 2009. D'Agosto first came to audience attend when he starred in Rocket Science, which was written and directed by Jeffrey Blitz. The film premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Dramatic Prize for Directing.
He is also no stranger to the small screen. Most recently he starred on the second season of the hit NBC series, Heroes. He played ‘West,' a love interest to Hayden Panettierre's ‘Claire.' Prior to Heroes he appeared on numerous television series including The Office, Six Feet Under, Cold Case, Without a Trace and House.
A native of Omaha, Nebraska, D'Agosto found acting through competitive speech tournaments and improvisation classes in grade school. While a senior at Creighton Preparatory School he landed his first professional role as ‘Larry Fouch' in Alexander Payne's Election. He spent his next four years at college, graduating cum laude from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with degrees in History and Theatre. Among many plays performed during that time, D'Agosto had the great honor of helping originate, as well as dramaturge and perform, a play with the late Milwaukee avant-garde troupe, Theatre X. The play, Chomsky 9/11, based on Noam Chomsky's post-9/11 writings, opened at the beginning of 2002 with resounding success and took an extended run.
Before graduating, he also studied poverty and race in the Dominican Republic for a semester – an experience for which he will remain forever grateful.
