While still in school, he landed his first professional job, a supporting role in the TV movie "Sally Hemmings: An American Scandal" (PBS, 2000).

After graduation, Knighton spent five years in New York, working in theater while still taking time to play supporting roles on shows like "Ed" (NBC, 2000-04), and "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010).

Knighton landed another series regular role on the sci-fi drama "Flashforward" (ABC, 2009-2010), which was cancelled after it's first season. Fortunately for Knighton, he earned another series regular role even before the cancellation, this time in the ensemble of the romantic sitcom "Happy Endings" (ABC, 2011-13). The series was well liked and aired for three seasons before being cancelled. Knighton soldiered on, appearing as a series regular another short lived series, "Weird Loners" (Fox, 2015), as well as recurring and guest roles on shows like "Fresh off the Boat" (ABC, 2015-), "Santa Clarita Diet" (Netflix, 2017-) and "LA to Vegas" (Fox, 2018).
