Viruet found his knack for performing at a very young age, pleading with his Mother to allow him to audition for a community theater production of "Nora's Ark." While attending high school in Prospect Heights, a suburb of Chicago, Viruet landed the leading role of "Douglas Spaulding" in the Steppenwolf Theater Company's production of Ray Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine." He went on to appear in many theatrical productions including Lysander in "A Midsummer Night's Dream, " "Diesel" in "West Side Story," and most notable, winning accolades for his starring performance in the title role of "Pippin."
"Pitch Perfect" marks Michael's Feature Film debut. In it, he plays "Unicycle," a member of an A'cappella singing group, "The Treble Makers," that is unbeatable in competition.
