PAUL DANO became well-known to movie fans with his breakout role in the coming-of-age drama, L.I.E., opposite Brian Cox. His mesmerizing portrayal of an innocent teenager forced to navigate his adolescence virtually unsupervised garnered him an Independent Spirit Award for "Best Debut Performance" as well as the "Best Actor" Award at the Stockholm Film Festival. Dano also tied for the L.A. Outfest Grand Jury Award for "Outstanding Actor in a Feature Film."

Growing up in Manhattan and Connecticut, Dano began his acting career on the New York stage with supporting roles on Broadway including "A Month In The Country" opposite Helen Mirren; "A Christmas Carol" with Ben Vereen and Terrence Mann; and "Inherit The Wind" opposite George C. Scott and Charles Durning.

In addition to a recurring role on "The Sopranos," Dano has consistently tackled different roles in his feature career--from an introverted prep school student in Universal's THE EMPEROR'S CLUB opposite Kevin Kline to an uninhibited coed in Fox's GIRL NEXT DOOR to a mysterious drifter in Warner Brothers' TAKING LIVES.

Dano's more recent performances prove no exception to his ability to handle a wide variety of roles. Opposite Gael Garcia Bernal, Dano plays the solidly Christian son of a pastor (played by William Hurt) in THE KING. In Rebecca Miller's THE BALLAD OF JACK AND ROSE, he portrays a sexual predator who sets his sights on Daniel Day-Lewis' teenage daughter. Currently, Dano stars in the critically-acclaimed LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE which has already grossed over $55 million domestically. As part of an ensemble cast including Steve Carell, Toni Collette and Greg Kinnear, Dano plays a Nietzsche devotee who has taken a vow of silence and is counting the days before he can escape his crazy family by going to Flight School.

Upcoming films include Spike Jonze's WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, based on Maurice Sendak's children's classic; Adam Bhala Lough's independent film WEAPONS opposite Nick Cannon and Mark Webber; and Paul Thomas Anderson's period drama THERE WILL BE BLOOD for Paramount Vantage in which he plays the second lead and nemesis to Daniel Day-Lewis' character.

Dano is currently continuing his college studies in New York City.
