Rasuk's credits also include the independent features "Keep Coming Back,” starring William H. Macy and Mos Def, "Life is Hot in Cracktown,” with Kerry Washington and Brandon Routh, "Bonneville,” starring Joan Allen, Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange, an adaptation of Rebecca Gilman's play "Spinning into Butter,” with Sarah Jessica Parker, "Adrift in Manhattan,” (2007 Sundance Film Festival, Dramatic Competition) with Heather Graham and Zackary Adler's "I'm Reed Fish,” with Alexis Bledel, Jay Baruchel and DJ Qualls.

A native New Yorker, Rasuk began acting at age 14. In 1998, he starred in "Five Feet High and Rising," Peter Sollett's short that garnered awards at both the Sundance and Cannes film festivals. Rasuk went on to study acting at the Professional Performing Arts School and HB Studios in Manhattan before collaborating with Sollett again on "Raising Victor Vargas.”
