Teen Actor Nicholas D�Agosto Has Vision of Deaths in �Final Destination 5�

Nicholas D�Agosto is a compelling young actor who first came to audiences� attention when he starred in the second season of the hit NBC series �Heroes� and in �From Prada to Nada� opposite Camilla Belle. Now, he leads the young cast of New Line Cinema�s �Final Destination 5� - the fifth installment of the successful horror franchise.

In the film, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, first revealing its menacing reality to a group of coworkers headed for a corporate retreat. During the bus ride, Sam (D�Agosto) has a premonition in which he and most of his friends, as well as numerous others, die in a horrific bridge collapse. When his vision ends, events begin to mirror what he had seen, and he frantically ushers as many of his colleagues - including his friend, Peter (Miles Fisher), and girlfriend, Molly (Emma Bell) - away from the disaster before Death can claim them.

But these unsuspecting souls were never supposed to survive and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group tries to discover a way to escape Death�s sinister agenda.

D�Agosto plays Sam, a young professional in the midst of a career crisis: sticking with a job at a paper factory that pays the rent, or following his passion to become a chef and moving to Paris. But Paris might cause him to lose the girl he loves, and that may be too big a price to pay.

When we meet Sam, he is distracted because, while he�s supposed to be setting up to go on this retreat, his girlfriend, Molly, is breaking up with him,� offers D�Agosto. �Then as they get on the bus, he gets that pang of �something doesn�t feel right,� but shrugs it off. When Death starts taking out those around him, he gets really scared, because he doesn�t understand why this is happening, what he�s supposed to do about it or how to convince the FBI that he has nothing to do with the deaths of those around him. On top of all that, he�s trying to make decisions about his life - for as long as it lasts, that is.�

Producer Craig Perry notes, �Nick�s an engaging and personable guy, and that translated to Sam, which was key since the audience has to want to take this really frightening ride with him.�

D�Agosto smiles, �What I love about this franchise is that it leaves this big question open for the audience: �Who or what is the entity that delivers this vision to these characters so that they can stave off Death just long enough for it to come and get them?� I think it�s a fun question that fans can engage in and certainly something I won't try to answer�even though I have my own ideas about it.�

Opening across the Philippines on August 24 in 3D and regular format, �Final Destination 5� is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
