Pearlman landed a lead role in the film, which was released in September 2010.[2][5] To increase the realism of the film, the directors gave Pearlman and his castmates cameras to film many of the scenes themselves.[6] Pearlman began his television career as Leslie Kaczander in the season 1 finale of Breaking In. Pearlman played Jay in the American remake of the British series The Inbetweeners on MTV,[7] but the series was cancelled after one season due to low viewership.
