Unlike many child actors, he parlayed his early juvenile career into adult acting roles and has appeared in many memorable films, including Air Force One with Harrison Ford, Married to The Mob with Michelle Pfieffer, and Blue Velvet, co-starring Dennis Hopper and directed by David Lynch. He has also worked twice with director Francis Ford Coppola, in both The Rainmaker and with Jeff Bridges in the fifties-era film Tucker.
Stockwell's television credits include series regular roles on The Tony Danza Show and on the U.S. and international hit series Quantum Leap. He has also starred in numerous made-for-television movies, including Edna Buchanan, Vanishing Son, Madonna: Innocence Lost, The Langoliers, The Innocent, Ordinary Heroes and In The Line Of Duty.
