Paulo is of Italian ancestry through his father, while his mother is Ashkenazi Jewish. He grew up in his hometown and went to Mayfield Secondary School for the Arts. Inspired by his parents who were also in performing arts, Paulo made numerous appearances in plays and musicals while in high school. After matriculation, he enrolled at Ryerson University to study theater, however, after only one year he dropped out to focus fully on his acting career.
He started with minor roles in such TV series as “Ready or Not” (1997), “The Don’s Analyst” (1997), while in 1998 he won the role of Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill in the TV sci-fi thriller series “Animorphs” (1998-1999). In 2000 he was selected for the role of Rubin in the TV teen-comedy series “Road Trip”, which really launched his acting career. He then made an appearance in the comedy “Josie and the Pussycats” in 2001, starring Rosario Dawson, Rachel Leigh Cook and Tara Reid, so gradually Paulo’s name was becoming more known popular in Hollywood. During the early 2000s, he featured in such films as “40 Days and 40 Nights” next to Josh Hartnett, and Shannyn Sossamon, then had the lead role in the crime drama “A Problem with Fear” (2003), while in 2004 he was selected to appear next to Matt LeBlanc in the “Friends” spin-off, “Joey” (2004-2006), as his nephew, Michael Tribbiani. After the series ended, Paulo landed the lead role in the comedy “Everything’s Gone Green” and then in 2010 appeared next to such film stars as Harvey Keitel, and J.K. Simmons in the comedy drama “A Beginner’s Guide to Endings”, which only further increased his net worth.
Meantime, in 2009 he was selected for his most prominent role so far, as Evan Roth Lawson, younger brother of lead protagonist Dr. Henry “Hank” Lawson, played by Mark Feuerstein in the series “Royal Pains”, lasted until 2016 with Paul appearing in 104 episodes, which certainly added a significant amount to his net worth. In recent years, he has appeared in several episodes of the TV Mini-Series “The Night Of” (2016), and in the new TV drama series “The Good Fight” (2017).
Regarding his personal life, Paulo tends to keep his most intimate details hidden from the media, therefore there isn’t much information about his life that is not related to career, except that he was rumoured to be in a relationship with Jill Flint, “Royal Pains” co-star.
His character on Royal Pains (2009) was originally written as Hank Lawson's best friend. When Andrew Lenchewski noticed his resemblance to Mark Feuerstein, it inspired him to turn the characters into brothers.
