Making an exceptional transition from theater to film, Tony Award-winning actor DAN FOGLER (Lane) stars in several upcoming movies. Fogler can currently be seen in Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock, with Liev Shreiber and Emile Hirsch. He most recently wrapped production on Disney's Mars Needs Moms!, and is also set to star in HBO's biopic Brother Sam, playing brilliant comedian Sam Kinison. His upcoming releases include Universal's Young Americans, opposite Topher Grace and Anna Faris.

Fogler made his directorial film debut with Hysterical Psycho, which was shown at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. The story takes place at the evil and haunted Moonlake Inn Motel, a place where supernatural chaos thrives. A member of the group becomes affected by lunar radiation and begins to take out each of the other members one by one. The film stars the Stage 13 ensemble, the film and theater production company of which Fogler is a founding member. Fogler makes a cameo appearance and narrates the film.

Fogler was last seen starring opposite Christopher Walken in Balls of Fury, for Focus Features. He was also recently part of the voice cast in the animated features Kung Fu Panda, alongside Jack Black and Jackie Chan, and Horton Hears a Who!, with Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, and starred in the independent film The Marconi Brothers. Prior to that, he starred in Lionsgate's Good Luck Chuck, opposite Dane Cook and Jessica Alba.

In 2005, Fogler won a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway production of William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin's musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, directed by James Lapine. Fogler was also honored with an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Lucille Lortel Award, a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble and a Theatre World Award for his portrayal. He was also awarded the New York magazine's Culture Award for Best Breakthrough Performance that year. He reprised the role in spring 2007 for the West Coast run of the musical.

Fogler returned to the New York stage in fall 2006 in Dan O'Brien's The Voyage of the Carcass, directed by Randy Baruh. Fogler previously appeared in off- Broadway and regional productions, including Bobby Gould in Hell, Joe Fearless, Crepuscule, Bridges and Harmonies, The White Devil and Dilettantes & Debutantes. Fogler's theatrical directorial debut was for a play that he also wrote, Elephant in the Room (inspired by Eugène Ionesco's Rhinoceros). The play, produced by Stage 13, premiered at the 2007 International Fringe Festival in New York.

Fogler also passes time as a member of Second Rate—a rock band with his friend Law Tarello.
