Biography

After years of playing younger versions of his older acting brothers, Rory Culkin had a breakout feature perfomance at the age of 11. Known as "the littlest Culkin," Rory Culkin was born the seventh and youngest child in the notorious Culkin clan. He also bore a striking resemblance to his famous older brother Macaulay, which allowed him to get his foot in the door acting in his brother's films "The Good Son" (1993) and "Richie Rich" (1994). These parts however, could barely be considered roles (especially "The Good Son" where Rory Culkin appeared only in a photograph) and did not allow him to showcase his talents.
