Early Life and Career Beginnings
Victor grew-up in New York where his father worked at an auto shop while his mother was a seamstress. He grew up alongside a brother, and both of them aspired to pursue careers in the entertainment industry. At a young age, he began taking lessons at a performing arts school and at the age of 14, he got his first role in the short film entitled “Five Feet High and Rising”.
During the making of that film, it was suggested to him by the director that they expand it to a full feature, leading to the creation of “Raising Victor Vargas”. The comedy film follows the story of a teenager as he tries to manage his eccentric family while also trying to win the affection of a girl. The film was screened during the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and was successful, leading him to gain a nomination during the 19th Independent Spirit Awards for Best Debut Performance.
Rise to Prominence
He continued working on independent films in the next few years, and then had another lead role in the film entitled “Haven”, which was aired at the Toronto International Film Festival. It is set in the Cayman Islands, and follows the story of differing people whose lives intersect, creating a chain of violence and chaos. In 2005, he portrayed skateboarder Tony Alva in the biographical film entitled “Lords of Dogtown”. To handle the role, he had to do surfing and skateboarding tricks, so learning the craft. The more complicated tricks were performed by stuntmen though, preferring a method acting approach to the role.
He tried to skate a huge ramp during the second week of training and fractured one of his orbital bones as a result. He later stated that at the very least, he earned respect from the skaters in the cast. Over the next few years, he had more roles, such as in “I’m Reed Fish”, ‘Bonneville”, and “Adrift in Manhattan”. In 2008, he played the role of a Private in “Stop-Loss”, a war film starring Channing Tatum and Ryan Philippe, which follows the story of young soldiers who are left psychologically scarred after their experience during the Iraq War.
After working in films such as “The War Boys” and “Life is Hot in Cracktown”, Victor was cast in “How to Make it In America” as the character Cam Calderon. The series ran on HBO for two seasons, following the lives of two friends who try to make it big in New York City’s fashion scene. The show was eventually cancelled due to its inability to garner a large audience. In the meantime, he returned to film work, and had a role in the film “Godzilla” – the monster film is a reboot of the “Godzilla” franchise, making it the 30th film overall.
It is the second film to be completely produced in Hollywood, starring Elizabeth Olsen, and Ken Watanabe. It follows the story of a soldier who is caught in a crossfire between Godzilla and two other monsters. In 2016, he had a starring role during a season of “Colony” as the character BB. The science fiction show starred Sarah Wayne Calles and Josh Holloway, lasting for three seasons before getting cancelled. A few of his latest projects include the film adaptations of the “Fifty Shades” trilogy, in which he portrayed Jose Rodriguez.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of any of Rasuk’s romantic relationships. He has not been open about this aspect of his life, and many sources believe that he is single due to the lack of any evidence to the contrary. He loves to maintain his body at the gym, and enjoys boxing too, plus professional boxing as a whole, and watches big matches from time to time.
He also likes to travel, to various countries around the world. He is close friends with many celebrities as well as musicians, often hanging out with them.
Similar to numerous actors, he is active online through accounts on social media. He has an account on Instagram on which he has over 63,000 followers, using the platform to post photos of some of his endeavors outside of work – he has photos alongside other actors such as Zoe Saldana, Rita Ora and Sam Rockwell. He also has a Twitter account with over 24,000 followers and mainly expresses his opinions through the platform. He follows a lot of sporting events, and shares his thoughts on those too. Another account he has is on Facebook with over 20,000 followers, on which he posts several photos similar to that on his Instagram.
