Biography

A talented actor with a penchant for playing intense, often troubled young men, Nick Stahl garnered the respect of critics and his peers at a young age with a winning combination of independent and mainstream films. At the age of 14, Stahl made his feature film debut opposite Mel Gibson in the drama "The Man Without a Face" (1993). After a slew of television and theatrical projects, he was appearing in such diverse, high-profile films as the teen thriller "Disturbing Behavior" (1998) and venerated director Terence Malick's war treatise "The Thin Red Line" (1998). Stahl continued the trend with important roles in the acclaimed drama "In the Bedroom" (2001) and the controversial based-on-fact tale of teen murder, "Bully" (2001). He later followed a starring role in the big-budget action sequel, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003) with the lead on the well-regarded cable series "Carnivale" (HBO, 2003-05). After his disturbing, but memorable supporting role in the hugely popular neo noir, "Sin City" (2005), Stahl worked steadily in such indie efforts as "How to Rob a Bank" (2008) and "388 Arletta Avenue" (2012). One of the edgier screen performers of his generation, Stahl continually made career choices based on his interest in the content of a project, rather than the size of its budget.

Bonus Trivia

.

On how he came to be cast in "Bully" (2001), Stahl told The Advocate (July 3, 2001): "I expressed my interest [in playing the role], and then I guess I read for it after that, like, maybe a week later. I just say 'hat's off' to [Clark] for giving me the opportunity, because I think it took a lot of imagination on his part. It was pretty bold of him not to go the stereotypical route. I guess he recognized that it was more psychological bullying. That gave me some security going into the movie that I would have some freedom to do what I wanted to do."

.

Stahl's wife Rose filed a missing persons report on May 14, 2012. According to the report, the actor was last seen on May 9. After missing for a week, Stahl reached out to friends via e-mail and announced his plans to enter a 30-day rehab program.

.

Stahl was arrested on Dec. 27, 2012 for allegedly committing a lewd act at an adult store in Hollywood, CA.
