During his first two decades onscreen, actor Nick Roth landed his most preeminent screen roles under the aegis of his famous father -- critically acclaimed independent filmmaker Bobby Roth (Heartbreakers, Rainbow Drive). The actor commenced dramatic work at the tender age of 11, with a supporting role in his dad's made-for-television feature Naomi & Wynonna: Love Can Build a Bridge (1995). He then followed it up with increasingly prominent parts in such Roth-directed telemovies and theatrical outings as Crossed Over (2002), Manhood (2003), and Brave New Girl (2004) -- in addition to occasional guest-star appearances on episodes of such prime-time series as The Shield, Commander in Chief, and Prison Break. Nick Roth signed for his first lead, opposite Henry Winkler, Bonnie Bedelia, and others, in the period coming-of-age drama Berkeley (2005), which Bobby Roth wrote, produced, and directed. In that film, the actor portrays Ben Sweet, a young collegiate hopelessly caught up in the social and political throes of late '60s activism.
