AMAURY NOLASCO (Jack Lupino) is best known to audiences as Sucre on the hit Fox television series Prison Break. He was last seen on the big screen in the 2007 blockbuster Transformers, in Street Kings opposite Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker, and in Armored, opposite Matt Dillon along with Laurence Fishburne and Jean Reno.
Nolasco, a native of Puerto Rico, studied biology at the University of Puerto Rico. Initially, he intended to enroll in medical school and become a doctor, but he was approached by a director and immediately cast in his first television commercial. After several acting gigs, Nolasco moved to New York, where he trained at the American British Dramatic Arts School. Classically trained in Shakespearean drama, the young actor focused on dialect technique, character work and stage presence.
Shortly thereafter, Nolasco began guest-starring on such television shows as Arli, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and E.R. He garnered his first supporting role in a studio film as Orange Julius in 2 Fast 2 Furious. He went on to co-star opposite Bernie Mac in Mr. 3000, and opposite Rob Schneider and David Spade in The Benchwarmers.
Nolasco’s additional television credits include guest-starring roles on George Lopez, Eve, and CSI: NY.
