(The Latest Available Bio)

ARLEN ESCARPETA (Daryl) marks his second film directed by Steven Quale with "Into the Storm," as the two previously teamed up for the New Line Cinema hit "Final Destination 5." This year, Escarpeta will be seen in the Science Fiction drama "Extant," produced by Steven Spielberg and starring Halle Berry. He is currently in production as Bobby Brown in the telefilm "I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story," opposite Yaya DaCosta as Houston, directed by Angela Bassett.

Escarpeta first earned critical acclaim for his breakout role as an honor student caught with a handgun at school in the IFC drama "American Gun." The film made its premiere at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival, and starred Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden and Donald Sutherland. The film was nominated for three Independent Film Spirit Awards, including Best Picture.

In 2010, Escarpeta hit the big screen in the ensemble cast of "Brotherhood," which also debuted that year at the South by Southwest Film Festival. Two years earlier, he starred in the Michael Bay-produced, re-imagined take on the classic "Friday the 13th." Prior to that, he starred alongside Matthew McConaughey and David Strathairn in the football feature film "We are Marshall," directed by McG. Soon after, he shot the film "The Ten," starring opposite Oliver Platt, and also starring Jessica Alba and Adam Brody. The quirky film made its world premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. His earlier film roles include Carl Franklin's courtroom thriller "High Crimes," opposite Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd.

Perhaps best known for his role as a charismatic college athlete on NBC's "American Dreams," Escarpeta made his television debut as a guest star on FOX's "Boston Public." He has since landed a recurring role on The CW's "The Secret Circle," and guest starring roles on hit television shows like FOX's "House M.D.," CBS's "NCIS Los Angeles," "Without a Trace," "Cold Case" and "Judging Amy," NBC's "Law & Order: SVU" and "ER," and FX's "The Shield." He also appeared in the pilot episode of NBC's "Boomtown" as the ill-fated character Cantrel.

Escarpeta moved to Los Angeles from his native country Belize when he was three years old. A born performer, the youngster began to dance and sing for the Young Saints Scholarship Foundation. During his secondary school years at Hollywood High School, he juggled two roles-performing in several drama productions onstage while serving as a football captain on the gridiron. He went on to attend Pasadena City College, where he concentrated on his sociology studies and the development of his acting career.
