Cusick began his career as a classical theatre actor. His first leading roles on stage included:
Dorian Grayin " The Picture of Dorian Gray" with Rupert Everett, Hamletin "The Marovitz Hamlet" with Helen Baxendale, and Horner in " The Country Wife". His performances as Torquato Tassoin the Edinburgh International Festivalproduction of "Torquato Tasso", and Creonin the Citizens' Theatre production of " Oedipus" earned him a special commendation for the Ian CharlesonAward 1995 for outstanding performance by a young actorin a classical theatrerole.
Cusick then began taking television and film roles. After appearing in recurring roles in shows such as "Casualty" and "
The Book Group", he starred as Jesus Christin the 2003 film "", a word-word re-telling of Saint John's Gospel. His largest role to date came in 2005 when he was cast as Desmond Humein the ABC series "Lost". Originally a recurring guest star in the second season (for which he received an Emmy nomination), Cusick became a member of the main cast from season three onwards. Cusick won the role when, while staying at the home of his friend Brian Cox, he met Cox's next-door neighbor Carlton Cuse, the executive producer of "Lost". Cusick believes: "a seed (was) planted, because they had been looking for either a Scottish or Irish character."

July 15 2006. They live in Oahu, Hawaiitogether.cite news|url=http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/televisionawards/emmys/2006-08-24-cusick_x.htm|title=Cusick carries lone Emmy torch for 'Lost' cast|accessdate=2008-04-14|date= 2006-08-24|publisher= USA Today|author=William Keck]
