Nick Sandow

As of early 2000s, the actor could be seen in “Third Watch”, “The Collection” and “Resurrecting the Champ”. Continuing to work steadily, he joined the cast of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, in 2005, gaining more exposure. Nick has worked extensively on TV as a guest star in numerous projects, such as “Law & Order”, “Third Watch”, “NYPD Blue”, “Boardwalk Empire”, and “Blue Bloods”.

Orange is the New Black

His most significant acting role was in “Orange Is the New Black”, in which he portrayed prison administrator Joseph Caputo; this was initially supposed to have been for a few episodes in the first season, but his role was extended during the second season, and he was made a series regular character in the third season of the series.

“Orange Is the New Black”, also referred to as OITNB in the media, is an American comedy-drama web TV series produced by Jenji Kohan for Netflix. The show is based on  Piper Kerman’s memoir “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison”, published in 2010. In the book, the author spoke about her experiences in minimum-security federal prison, FCI Danbury. The series made its debut on Netflix in July 2013, soon gaining critical acclaim and praise from the audience. By February 2016, the series was successively renewed, until in late 2018 the seventh season became its last.

The success of its initial season saw the series earn 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, for such as Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, winning all three. A new Emmy rule in 2015 required the series to modify to drama. For its second season, the series was given four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. “Orange Is the New Black” is the first series to gain Emmy nominations in both drama and comedy categories.

It was also rewarded with six Golden Globe Award nominations, six Writers Guild of America Award nominations, a Producers Guild of America Award, as well as an American Film Institute award, and a Peabody Award. Working on such a prominent project allowed Sandow to rise to fame and gain more attention among the media. His character, Joe Caputo, is one of the main characters – Caputo is an honest man, despite his somewhat gruff and lecherous attitude, who truly cares for the women in his hands.

While he holds a prominent position, Joe is often a prison underdog because he is considered “weak” and there is little regard for him from both staff and prisoners.

Latter Career

As of Sandow’s most recent projects, these include “Patti Cake$”, “Cabaret Maxime” and “Spinning Gold”, with the latter currently being in the process of filming. Overall, Nick has had 64 acting gigs and we believe there is more to come for him, as he’s career and goal-oriented.
