  • Born: Jan 1, 0001

At the age of ten, Lou Taylor Pucci had no serious interest in acting, but his aunt saw that he had quite a talent for the art. She bribed him to appear in a community theater production of Oliver, kicking off a career that would soon land him on Broadway in a production of The Sound of Music. By the age of 15, he had a small part in the independent film [[Feature~V259867~Personal Velocity: Three Portraits~personalvelocity:threeportraits]]. The minor role caught the eye of agent Billy Lazarus, who subsequently took Pucci on as a client. Pucci took his first leading role in 2005's [[Feature~V291002~Thumbsucker~thumbsucker]], the first feature film by music video director [[Performer~P390954~Mike Mills~mikemills]]. His sensitive and humorous portrayal of a 17-year-old boy's struggle to grow up was extremely well received, garnering praise from critics and audiences alike. Leading up to this auspicious debut, the young actor had a supporting part in another indie film called [[Feature~V307584~The Chumscrubber~thechumscrubber]], a darkly comic tale about the dysfunction of suburbia. The same year, he could be seen performing alongside such greats as [[Performer~P104390~Paul Newman~paulnewman]], [[Performer~P30614~Ed Harris~edharris]], and [[Performer~P32716~Philip Seymour Hoffman~philipseymourhoffman]] in the Golden Globe Award-winning HBO mini series [[Feature~V299582~Empire Falls~empirefalls]]. 2006 found Pucci reluctant to slow down, joining the cast of director [[Performer~P273912~Martin Hynes~martinhynes]]' second feature film The Go-Getter, as well as [[Performer~P99850~Richard Linklater~richardlinklater]]'s film adaptation of [[Performer~P358267~Eric Schlosser~ericschlosser]]'s best-selling book [[Feature~V326364~Fast Food Nation~fastfoodnation]]. He also signed on to appear in [[Feature~V237115~Donnie Darko~donniedarko]] director [[Performer~P299369~Richard Kelly~richardkelly]]'s futuristic ensemble film [[Feature~V325848~Southland Tales~southlandtales]]. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
