Biography

A precocious child actor who charmingly anchored the hit "Malcolm in the Middle," (FOX, 2000-06), Frankie Muniz always seemed wise beyond his years on screen and off. Launched into stardom with his oddball television series and with movie roles in films like "My Dog Skip" (2000), "Big Fat Liar" (2002), and "Agent Cody Banks" (2003), Muniz was one of the most successful young actors of his era, popular with critics and fans alike. The always difficult transition from child star to adult actor gave Muniz the opportunity to step away from the spotlight and into professional race car driving, seemingly in no hurry to storm Hollywood again. Based on his history, it seemed logical to assume that if he chose to return to acting full-time as an adult, he would approach the challenge with as much intelligence and charm as he had as a child.
