Nicholas Braun: Chasing Time in "Minutemen"

Call it revenge of the nerds: in the Disney original movie "Minutemen" three high school nerds, including the hugely popular Nicholas Braun, create a time machine to go back and fiddle with past events to tone down their geek quotient and become more cool at school.

But these time travelers aren't changing history like Bill and Ted; apparently they can only go back in time two days at the most, and can only stay in the past for 10 minutes.

One of the classmates of the Nicholas Braun character and his buddies is 19-year-old actor Steven R. McQueen, who plays a football player. If that name sounds familiar, it should: he is the grandson of legendary actor Steve McQueen. (Along with Nicholas Braun, the other creators of the time machine are Luke Benward and Jason Dolley.)

Nicholas Braun is a busy man (yes, at 19 years old, he's no longer a kid): you may know him from 2001's "Walter and Henry" or from "Sky High" (2005), or from his guest stints on "Law & Order: SVU," "Without a Trace," and "Shark." You can find his complete filmography on his page at IMDB.

Nicholas Braun's official Web site also notes that he's doing two short films and has signed with an agent to do commercials.
