ACTOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: AUSTIN NICHOLS was born in Michigan and raised in Texas from the age of 2. At 18, Nichols enrolled at the University of Southern California and simultaneously began his acting career with small television and film roles. After graduating, a role on HBO’s Six Feet Under led Nichols to the big-budget environmental disaster flick, The Day After Tomorrow.

He followed that up with Wimbledon and Glory Road. It was playing Morgan Earp on Deadwood, where Nichols met David Milch. Milch asked if Nichols would play the title role in his new series for HBO, John From Cincinnati. The very interesting and enigmatic series lasted only one season, but it left its mark on the actor.

Ever since, Nichols has been seeking out great writers and directors to work with. A string of indies followed with The Informers, Beautiful Boy, and Parkland. Most recently, Nichols can be seen on Showtime’s Ray Donovan, playing the dark and tortured movie star, Tommy Wheeler.

Q&A to feature ‘One Tree Hill’ actor  Austin Nichols to appear at Cal Lutheran on Oct. 8

(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Sept. 18, 2014) Actor and director Austin Nichols will be the first guest in California Lutheran University’s 2014-2015 “Conversations With …” series.

The former “One Tree Hill” actor will answer questions starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8, in Preus-Brandt Forum on the Thousand Oaks campus. Actor, writer and director Markus Flanagan, who teaches at Cal Lutheran, will moderate the informal one-hour discussion on the craft of acting followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.

Nichols grew up in Austin, Texas, and graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in creative writing in 2002. In 2004, he portrayed Jake Hammond in the film “Wimbledon” and J.D. in “The Day After Tomorrow.” He played the title role of a surfer in the 2007 HBO series “John from Cincinnati.” He portrayed Julian Baker and directed two episodes of the “One Tree Hill” television series from 2008 to 2012. His many other acting credits include appearances on the TV series “Ray Donovan,” “The Mob Doctor” and “Friday Night Lights.”

The “Conversations With …” talks provide theater arts students and other aspiring actors with advice from professionals. They take the approach laid out in Flanagan’s book, “One Less Bitter Actor: The Actor’s Survival Guide,” which explains how to make it in the business of acting while staying sane and focused.

Preus-Brandt Forum is located at 135 Chapel Lane on the Thousand Oaks campus. For more information, call 805-493-3415 or email
