Nathan Frizzell grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana- the only son of LSU football player Tommy Frizzell and LSU cheerleader Lisa Loyacano.
He was introduced to acting at the age of 7, and by the time he was a junior in high school, he was juggling a full plate of sports and theatre. Following the family tradition, Nathan went to LSU where he was one of the last students to personally receive a scholarship from the legendary Coach Charles McClendon before he passed away. Nathan received a BA in Theatre, under the guidance of the late John Dennis and Jane Brody.
While at LSU, Nathan got the chance to work at the world reknown Colorado Shakespeare Festival during the summer of 2002.
Shortly after graduation, Nathan moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and television. Starting from Square One with no contacts or "ins," Nathan found his own way in to the industry.
Since 2006, Nathan has been involved in numerous award-winning plays, been nominated for a couple of actor awards in Los Angeles theatre, worked as a principal in 4 national commercial campaigns to date, been cast and directed by Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin, landed network co-star and network guest star roles, has a recurring role on TV Land's Hot In Cleveland and is currently a series regular on the digital series Bloomers.
Recently Nathan has developed his talents on the other side of the camera as well. In 2012, Nathan- along with writer/director Nick Peet (NBC's Grimm) and fellow actors Jeremy Glazer and Tami Minoff- produced an award-winning short film for the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project. Endless Love was an official "Best Of" Selection by the festival, and it took home 2 awards for Best Score and Best Use of Required Element (Line). For the last 7 years, Nathan has been involved as an actor and writer with a sketch comedy group led by television producer Todd Milliner (Hazy Mills Productions; NBC's Grimm, Sean Saves The World and Hollywood Game Night, TVLand's Hot In Cleveland and Soul Man) and Rob Mello. Recent successful productions include Kim Jong Fun, SubText Messages, Milk Cartons... And Other Places To Find Yourself, and Idnapped.
In August of 2014, Nathan re-teamed with Nick Peet, sound designer Nick Cochran, makeup artist Michael Brassem and composer Morgan Johnson (along with many new professionals) to compete in the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project for the second time. Once again, their collaboration received rave reviews and earned them an official "Best Of" Festival selection.
Winner of a 48 HFP Audience Award, Threshold took home the award for Best Editing in addition to being nominated for Best Production Design, Best Sound and Best Cinematography.
In total, Frizzell, Peet and Co. have 2 "Best Of" festival selections, 7 nominations and 4 wins in 2 appearances at the LA 48 HFP.
