Best known for his roles on "Lost," "Saving Grace," and "Prison Break," actor and musician Dylan Minnette began his career in front of the camera when he was spotted by a talent scout in Chicago at the tender age of seven. The young Illinois native soon scored professional modeling gigs as a result of the encounter, eventually leading Minnette's family to relocate to Los Angeles in order to accommodate his budding career. Minnette's first professional acting job would come in the form of an appearance on the series "Drake & Josh" (Nickelodeon (2004-07) in 2005. The then-eight-year-old actor had no shortage of roles on episodes of popular shows like "MADtv" (Fox 1995-2009), "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC 2005- ), and "Ghost Whisperer" (CBS 2005-2010). Minnette was also cast in two prominent recurring roles on major shows, playing Michael's younger self on the drama "Prison Break" (Fox 2005-09), and portraying Jack's son David on "Lost" (ABC 2004-2010). Additionally, this period also found Minnette cast in a starring role on the series "Saving Grace" (TNT 2007-2010) alongside Oscar winner Holly Hunter. This flurry of increasingly prominent appearances did much to buoy Minnette's name, but the young performer had successes to celebrate in other areas as well. In 2010, his band The Narwhals (then known as The Feaver) won the 98.7 FM Rockstar battle of the bands competition. The rock group, for which Minnette provided lead vocals and rhythm guitar, would go on to perform on the 2011 Vans Warped Tour and enjoy regular bookings at major Los Angeles-area music venues like The Whisky a Go Go and The Roxy. One of The Narwhals' songs, "Bleeding Man," was used in a promo for the second season of "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour" (Discovery Family 2010- ). Despite his success with The Narwhals, Minnette would continue to take on acting projects at an impressive pace, appearing in major feature films like the horror movie "Let Me In" (2010) and the family film "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" (2014). Minnette continued to appear regularly on television, most memorably with recurring roles on "Awake" (NBC 2012) and "Scandal" (ABC 2012- ).
