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."

.

"The moment that you start to read a script, you’re watching the movie in your mind, and that’s the one moment that you have. Then, you go off to make the movie and you become so lost in it. With everything, it’s just a matter of finding whether I can bring anything new and different. I never really want to repeat myself, obviously, but even if I do, it’s because it is a choice." -- from www.collider.com, April 5, 2013

.

"A lot of really great actors I've worked with tend to be older, and I think the better you know yourself as a person, the better an actor you can be. So as I've gotten to know myself as a person and grown up, I've realized that." -- from www.vulture.com, July 20, 2015
