Nate Torrence - Rotten Tomatoes

Nate Torrence



A native of Berlin, OH, Nate Torrence kick-started his show-business career via a successful audition for Chicago's famed Second City comedy troupe, where he performed in sketches and blackouts alongside future SNL giant Tina Fey and others. Torrence then checked in as a veritable mainstay on American commercials, plugging such brands as Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Capital One, and Volkswagen for years. His amiable presence in those spots, in turn, caught the eye of funnyman Adam Sandler and opened the door to a long and successful acting career on television and (later) in film; throughout, Torrence specialized in playing generally average and affable everymen. He commenced with guest parts on situation comedies and dramas including House, Malcolm in the Middle, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, then scored the role of Dylan Killington on the critically lauded but short-lived Aaron Sorkin comedy drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006-2007). Torrence moved into features with a small role in Sandler's comic fantasy Click (2006) and played Lloyd opposite Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway in the Peter Segal-directed spy comedy Get Smart. In the years to come, Smith would remain active on screen, appearing in movies like My Best Friend's Girl and on shows like Mr. Sunshine.
