RISE OF THE MACHINES
After an impressive feature film debut at the age of twelve
in The Man Without a Face, opposite Mel Gibson, NICK STAHL (John
Connor) continues to display a broad range of talent in a variety of films.
Perhaps most notable is his performance opposite Marisa Tomei in the critically
acclaimed, Academy Award-nominated film In the Bedroom. Also memorable
was his chilling performance in director Larry Clark's Bully, opposite
Brad Renfro and Bijou Phillips. His other film credits include The Thin Red
Line, directed by Terrence Malick and co-staring Sean Penn and George
Clooney, and Safe Passage, opposite Susan Sarandon and Sam Shepard.
Recently, Stahl was seen in the Sundance feature Bookies, opposite Rachel
Leigh Cook and Lucas Haas.
Currently, Stahl is shooting the HBO original series Carnivale.
Created by Daniel Knauf, Carnivale focuses on a charismatic, shadowy
radio evangelist and a mysterious 18-year-old fugitive (Stahl) who is taken in
by the carnival as it travels across the Oklahoma Dust Bowl in the 1930s.
Born in Harlington, Texas and raised in Dallas, Stahl
performed in children's plays at the age of four. His first professional role
was at the age of ten in the television movie Stranger at My Door with
Robert Urich. He followed with another movie of the week, A Woman With a Past,
opposite Pamela Reed. Shortly thereafter, he received the coveted role of the
young boy in The Man Without a Face who brings out the love in a
physically and emotionally scarred man (played by Mel Gibson). Gibson gave him
the role over thousands of others after being impressed by his screen test.
The following year he completed another movie for television,
Incident in a Small Town, with Walter Matthau, and the Disney feature Tall
Tale, in which he co-starred opposite Patrick Swayze. Stahl also
co-starred with Martha Plimpton in Tim Blake Nelson's directorial debut, Eye
of God, which premiered at the Sundance Film festival.
Stahl currently lives in Los Angeles.
