Biography

Michael Angarano is a native of New York City, and his earliest roles were for TV shows and films shot within the city's limits. The actor took to his craft at an early age, making his television debut at age eight, playing the son of David Duchovny when the "The X-Files" star hosted "Saturday Night Live". The next year, Angarano broke into film with a small role in 1996's "I'm Not Rappaport", the touching tale of senior moments and friendship based on the Tony Award-winning play of the same name by Herb Gardner. Angarano eventually moved to Los Angeles to pursue film and television acting, and became a series regular role on the short-lived crime saga "Cover Me: Based on the True Life of an FBI Family". His first major film role was in the family comedy "Little Secrets", which starred a young Evan Rachel Wood as a child entrepreneur who keeps secrets for a price, and he had a recurring part on the wildly popular sitcom "Will & Grace", playing the meek son of the outrageous Jack McFarland. Each of these increased the young actor's visibility, and in short order he was landing lead roles in big-budget productions like the Disney superheroes adventure "Sky High", the action-packed Jackie Chan/Jet Li martial arts film "The Forbidden Kingdom", and indie productions like the offbeat comedy "Gentlemen Broncos", and the small-town drama "Snow Angels". Subsequently, Angarano toplined Kevin Smith's horror comedy "Red State" and appeared in Steven Soderbergh's all-star thriller "Haywire".
