The actor got his first big breaks and gained national recognition for his work in commercials, the first notable national spot being for Golden Grahams cereal. He made a lasting and hilarious impression as David Spade's sidekick in the Capital One ads, and as the screaming Jetta test driver in a Volkswagen campaign, which earned him a 2005 AICP award for Best Talent/Performance in a Commercial.
His work in commercials led to opportunities for guest-starring roles on such television series including: How I Met Your Mother, CSI, Malcolm in the Middle, Las Vegas, Girlfriends, Reno 911 One on One, as well as a recurring role on the CBS drama Ghost Whisperer, the Matthew Perry series The End of Steve and as a regular on the critically acclaimed Aaron Sorkin series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
Torrence's film appearances include Get Smart. While shooting the film, Torrence and co-star Masi Oka starred in a video spin-off, featuring their characters, Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control. In 2008, he appeared in the Dane Cook comedy My Best Friend's Girl.
Despite a hectic schedule, Torrence still finds time to perform sketch/improv shows in area theaters including The Second City Studio Theater in LA.
