Frankie Muniz

Frankie Muniz, an Emmy award nominee and two-time Golden Globe nominee, has received rave reviews for his performance as the whip-smart Malcolm in the hit television series Malcolm in the Middle. In addition, he has received multiple nominations from the Television Critics Association, as well as The Hollywood Reporter Young Star Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series.

Muniz has also established himself as a rising star of the big screen. After reaching box office success with the first Agent Cody Banks and Big Fat Liar (both of which grossed over $50 million domestically), Muniz will be heard as the voice of an abandoned baby zebra that grows up on a Kentucky farm believing he is a racehorse in the animated film Racing Stripes.

To add to his list of accolades, Muniz has been nominated for Teen Choice Awards in several categories over the past three years in categories such as Best Choice Breakout Performance by an Actor for Big Fat Liar, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Malcolm in the Middle, and Best Chemistry On-Screen Duo with Amanda Bynes.

Muniz has also appeared in My Dog Skip. He received the Video Software Dealers Association (VSDA) Rising Star of the Year Award and a Best Actor honor from the Giffoni Film Festival in Italy.

Muniz made his television debut in the made-for-television movie Dance with Olivia. He also appeared in the What the Deaf Man Heard, which garnered him a nomination for The Hollywood Reporter Young Star Awards as well as a nomination for the Young Artist of Hollywood Award for Television Performance in a Movie or Miniseries.

Muniz's voice can also be heard on the Nickelodeon cartoon entitled Fairly Odd Parents, as a guest on The Simpsons, and as Rocky in the Rumpus.com's upcoming feature length web cartoon The Red Bison. Muniz also appeared in several regional theatrical productions including A Christmas Carol, The Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz, Our Town, and the critically acclaimed The Death of Papa.

Muniz currently resides in Los Angeles. He recently began a relationship with the California, Arizona, Nevada (CAN) Chapter of Starlight Children's Foundation, and they completed their first fundraiser together, Frankie Muniz Hoop LA, a charity basketball tournament.
