From Army Vet & PhotoJournalist, to Big Screen Actor @DaveVescio on #TheSashaMarinaShow

Born in Somerset, Pennsylvania in 1970, Dave Vescio began making his own way through life at a very young age, joining the U.S. Army (25th Infantry Division) when he was 18-years old as a combat light infantry soldier with a specialty in jungle warfare. He studied Broadcast Journalism at Virginia Tech after his service, and Vescio soon found himself working as a TV Photojournalist for CBS News.
Performing on screen was always a natural medium, and it was only a matter of time before Vescio was accepted as a full-time student at the Atlantic Theater Company in NYC led by an impressive ensemble, the likes of writer/director David Mamet and actor William H. Macy (Fargo). Dave quickly found his passion for playing the villain in theater plays and feature films.
For ten years Vescio has meticulously perfected his craft, focusing on the antagonist and offbeat roles and developing his own unique style of acting. With his stunning ability to step into the mind of the character, and a preference of provocative and controversial roles, Vescio offers a performance that invades audience’s comfort zones.
Always attracted to the darker side of life, Dave Vescio has performed in over 40 films, including Syfy’s Alien Rising, Lionsgate's Virus X, and the thriller Lost Soul. A rapidly rising star, Vescio takes the helm of the villainous role in the blockbuster Hick alongside a star-studded ensemble including Chloe Grace Moretz, Blake Lively, Alec Baldwin, and Juliette Lewis.
Other credits include The Odd Way Home with Rumer Willis, Revelation Road 2 with Eric Roberts, The Millionaire Tour with Dominic Monaghan; and his upcoming movies in the works include Last Supper with Eddie Griffin, and Bereave with Malcolm McDowell.
