Gubler was interning for Wes Anderson at the same time he was modeling, and Wes encouraged him to audition for a part in his movie The Life Aquatic. Gubler did, and landed a role. Before graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, he had already created several movies that were mostly filmed in his hometown of Las Vegas as well as New York City.
