Michael Pitt

Michael Pitt was named by Filmmaker Magazine as one of the Twenty-Five New Faces of Independent Film in the Summer 2000 issue. He has worked with such directors as Gus Van Sant in Finding Forrester, John Cameron Mitchell in Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001 Sundance Film Festival Award Winner) and Larry Clark in Bully.

Pitt's roots lie in theatre and in the summer of 1999 he made his Off-Broadway and stage debut starring as 'Dalton' in the New York Theatre Workshop's production of The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek, written by Naomi Wallace and directed by Lisa Peterson. Daily Variety called his performance Arresting and the New York Post wrote, "Pitt, brings to Dalton all the poetry, passion and openness that the text and the staging withhold."

In the Spring of 2000, Pitt again worked with Naomi Wallace in Duke University's presentation of Birdy and was directed by Kevin Knight.

Pitt recently appeared in a short film with first time director Faye Dunaway, entitled The Yellow Bird. Other film credits include Nydia's Chuletta's and Hi Life. Television credits include a guest starring role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and as a recurring special guest-star on the 1999-2000 season of Dawson's Creek.

Among his many other talents, Pitt is also an artist, musician and filmmaker. He was born and raised in New Jersey.
