Nick Zano stars in The CW’s hit series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” as Dr. Nate Heywood, a professor of “deductive historical reconstruction,” a superhero who can turn into steel, a theme park impresario, and an unlucky-in-love Legend. Nate knows he loves Zari 1.0 (Tala Ashe,) she’s his forever girl, and it’s time to take the next step in their relationship. All Nate needs to figure out is what exactly the next step is, which is complicated when your girlfriend lives in an air totem.

He starred in “One Big Happy” alongside Elisha Cuthbert and Kelly Brook. He had recurring roles in “Happy Endings” as Penny’s fiancé, Pete, and “2 Broke Girls” as Johnny.
