A performer born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, as the son of noted stage thespian Keith Dinicol, Joe Dinicol debuted as an actor in his early teens, with a supporting role in the 1997 farce Elvis Meets Nixon, then followed it up with a succession of unique, albeit low-profile, character parts in features including The Virgin Suicides (1999, as a troubled young man who commits suicide via a roof jump), the 2003 Kart Racer (as a school bully), and the Lifetime Network VD drama She's Too Young (2004, as the supportive best friend of a syphilis-infected school pariah). In 2007, Dinicol starred as one of several young men and women struggling to fend off hordes of flesh-eating zombies in George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead.
