Michael Angarano

Michael Angarano is one of the most gifted actors of his generation, making his mark in Hollywood with a diversity of roles that define him as one of the industry's most respected and sought after young actors.

Angarano can currently be seen in David Gordon Green's SNOW ANGELS opposite Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale. The dramatic film interweaves the life of a teenager (Angarano), with his old baby sitter (Beckinsale), her estranged husband (Rockwell), and their daughter.

SNOW ANGELS premiered in competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and has just been released by Warner Independent. Kyle Smith from the New York Post wrote of Angarano's performance, "The general foundering is realized with subtle wit and depth of feeling by all, especially by the tremendously appealing Michael Angarano, who quietly owns the film as a teen boy."

Angarano is currently in production on Jared Hess' GENTLEMEN BRONCOS opposite Sam Rockwell and Jermaine Clement. The comedic film follows a high school outcast (Angarano) who attends a camp for writers where his story gets ripped off by a legendary fantasy novelist.

Angarano plays a rebellious 17 year old from a broken home who teams up with a retired gaffer (Plummer) to produce and direct a film for a prestigious student competition at his school. The film premiered at the 2007 Berlin International Film Festival and 2007 Santa Barbara Film Festival, where it was the recipient of the American Spirit Award.

Angarano made his breakthrough performance in Wes Craven's MUSIC OF THE HEART opposite Meryl Streep. Shortly after, he starred in Cameron Crowe's Academy Award nominated film ALMOST FAMOUS opposite Francis McDormand, Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel and Patrick Fugit. Angarano played young William (young Patrick Fugit) and had most of his scenes with Francis McDormand.
