    Next Gen 2013
    Issue 40 Next Gen Nick Collins - P 2013
    Christopher Patey
    Nick Collins
    Gersh, agent

    Collins' talent roster reads like a who's who of NBC's schedule: He has the co-stars of the network's top newcomer, The Blacklist (Megan Boone); its most anticipated midseason entry, About a Boy (David Walton); and its returning hit Chicago Fire (Taylor Kinney).

    Other clients include Megan Hilty, Meagan Good and Tony winner Courtney B. Vance. On the film front, the Boston-bred Brown University grad, who is married with three children, put young star Liam James into Sundance darling The Way Way Back.

    FIRST JOB: Waiting tables at Chin Chin in Brentwood.

    BIG BREAK: Getting hired on Bob Gersh's desk, which was my first job at the agency.

    IF I'M NOT WORKING: You'll probably find me feeding, burping or changing diapers. I have three kids under 4.

    IF I WEREN'T IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY: I'd probably teach. I come from a family of teachers. My dad was a Spanish teacher, and my mom taught visually impaired kids.

    IN MY BIOPIC, THE ACTOR PLAYING ME WOULD BE: Chris O'Dowd. He's relatable, funny and real. He's an aspirational version of me.

    CLIENT I'D POACH: Chris O'Dowd, but only if I can leverage him into playing me in that movie about my life.
