Austin Nichols, 25, will start in a drama or comedy series project (um, that’s vague)  with HBO (they rarely sign actors to holding deals).  Being in the tabloids certainly didn’t hurt this deal one bit!  Remember Austin growling at the Grizzles with Jake Gyllenhaal and walking on the beach with One Tree Hill‘s Sophia Bush?  Of course you did. According to PaperAustin got his first big break as Rachel Griffith’s boy toy on Six Feet Under. Soon after, Austin met Gyllenhaal while shooting the doomsday epic The Day After Tomorrow. "I’ve learned a ton from Jake. He’s a really sharp guy. He told me everything about acting, the business, girls, life." Austin‘s upcoming projects show off his darker side. In The House of Usher, he plays a "twisted, terminally ill, fucked-up guy." In Lenexa, 1 Mile, he’s a hard-partying, troubled kid with a violent temper. And in the HBO series Deadwood, Austin is mesmerizing as Wyatt Earp’s murderous brother Morgan.  Austin‘s father says that he named his only son after Austin Nichols, the brewmaster of Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. "My full name, Austin Nichols, is on the label," Austin reports with a loud laugh. "My dad claims a wild turkey was released on the White House lawn the night I was born."
