Paul Iacono

Paul Iacono continues to rise as one of Young Hollywood's most promising stars. A New Yorker through-and-through, Iacono graduated from the Professional Performing Arts School and has performed in over fifty theatrical readings, workshops, and shows -- all by the age of 19.

Iacono was most recently seen in MGM's remake of Fame in which he played Neil Baczynsky, the ambitious and aspiring filmmaker.

Some of his favorites theatrical shows include Sail Away at Carnegie Hall with Elaine Strich and Marian Seldes, Mame opposite Christine Ebersol at the Papermill Play House, John Guare's Landscape of the Body with Lili Taylor and Sherie Rene Scott, and the Drama Desk Award-winning revival of William Inge's The Dark at the Top of the Stairs.

Paul has appeared in several independent films, including Consent, Glow Ropes, Return to Sleepaway Camp, Winter Solstice and Parrot Beach. On television, Paul can be heard as the voice of Benny the Bull on Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer. He played Billy Boy in the MTV sketch comedy show Human Giant, and has made appearances on the soap operas Guiding Light, As the World Turns and Another World.

Paul's other passion is play/screenplay writing. His new play Prince/Elizabeth recently received its first reading in Manhattan, featuring Taylor Momsen and Connor Paolo of Gossip Girl.

When not acting, Paul is proud to do charity work for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of America and currently serves as a spokesperson for the Tomorrows Children's Fund.

Some of the writers/filmmakers he aspires to work with include Tony Kushner, Aaron Sorkin, P.T. Anderson, and Wes Anderson.
