Braun is having the most exciting year of his career, and his star quality will be seen this June on the small screen in the Disney Channel's hugely anticipated made-for-television movie, Princess Protection Program premiering in June. Braun plays the pivotal character, 'Ed,' a quirky and likeable filmmaker. He is the love interest to Carter, played by teen star Selena Gomez. Nicholas is sure to gain the attention of the industry and audiences alike in this wonderful story.
Also this year, Braun began starring in and producing Poor Paul, an original web series. It premiered September 16th on YouTube and KoldCast.TV and as of early December, became available to approximately 4 million homes through TiVo's new on-demand branch: TiVoCast. Largely improvised, the production has generated a huge following in the short time since its release.
Born in Long Island, New York, Braun knew from a very young age that he would be an actor. He was introduced to the art when his father, Craig, at the late age of 54, decided to change careers entirely to pursue a life-long dream of becoming an actor. During his high school years, Braun attended Saint Mark's, a boarding school in Massachusetts. His career was put on hiatus, while he focused on his academia, until one of his most important roles to date came along his sophomore year, in 2004. He landed a leading part in the Disney summer blockbuster, Sky High, which starred Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston. He captured Disney's attention and that lead to his next film, Disney Channel's Original Movie Minutemen, which premiered to high ratings this past January. Nicholas' other film credits include the recently completed, Love at First Hiccup (due out in '09), independent movie Carry Me Home, and Showtime's Walter and Henry, in which he starred as Henry opposite John Larroquette's Walter. Nick has had numerous guest starring roles on network TV series including Cold Case, Without a Trace, and Law & Order: SVU, to name a few.
Off screen, Braun donates his time to the charity organization, Young Storytellers Foundation, where underprivileged children are given the opportunity to write short scripts and watch them performed live by actors. Braun has performed in approximately 25 productions, as both a mentor and an actor. In addition to acting, Braun is a gifted musician and enjoys singing and playing the trumpet. He is a huge sports fan, enjoys snowboarding and playing golf and tennis.
