In his second feature as a director, "Don Peyote," Fogler put together an ensemble cast that included Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway and Jay Baruchel.

He got his start on Broadway, where his performance in director James Lapine's "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" earned him a Tony Award in 2005. For his performance in the musical, Fogler was also honored with the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Lucille Lortel Award, and a Theatre World Award; the New York Magazine Culture Award for Best Breakthrough Performance; and a Drama Desk Award for Best Ensemble, shared with the cast. He reprised the role in 2007 for the play's West Coast run.
