One of the more impressive younger talents in Hollywood, actor Mike Vogel established himself as the lead in several genre films and as a minor player in more mainstream fare prior to earning recognition as a talented performer in either starring or supporting roles. Following his debut as a recurring character on the comedy series "Grounded for Life" (Fox, 2001-05), Vogel went on to star in smaller features like "Grind" (2003), "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (2003) and "Supercross" (2005). With supporting turns in mass appeal projects like "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (2005), "Rumor Has It" (2006) and "Poseidon" (2006), he began to gain the broad exposure that would take his nascent career to the next level. The payoff came when Vogel was cast as a co-lead in the J. J. Abrams-produced monster movie "Cloverfield" (2008) and scored a prominent role in the sleeper hit film "The Help" (2011). Steadily building an impressive résumé on film and television, Vogel positioned himself for the next career-making opportunity that would springboard him to even greater success.
