LOU TAYLOR PUCCI (Eric) established himself among the most promising actors of his generation when Mike Mills' Thumbsucker premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. For his performance as Justin Cobb, a compulsive 17-year-old, Pucci received both a Sundance Special Jury Prize for acting and the Best Actor Award at the Berlin Film Festival.
Pucci most recently starred in the drama The Music Never Stopped, playing a young man with devastating amnesia who uses music to reconnect with his memories and his family. He also recently filmed the lead in Alonso Mayo's dramedy The Story of Luke, opposite Cary Elwes and Seth Green. He was also seen in an episode of HBO's new hit series, "Girls," starring Lena Dunham.
Other film credits include John Hindman's The Answer Man, opposite Jeff Daniels, Lauren Graham, Kat Dennings and Olivia Thirlby; David and Alex Pastor's Carriers, with Chris Pine, Piper Perabo and Emily VanCamp; and Will Canon's Brotherhood, which won Best Narrative Feature at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival.
Pucci grew up in central New Jersey and had little interest in acting until, at age 10, his aunt bribed him to try out for community theater. Two years later, he appeared on Broadway as Friedrich in "The Sound of Music." Pucci made his feature film debut as Kevin, a badly beaten young hitchhiker encountered by Fairuza Balk's character in Rebecca Miller's Personal Velocity (2002).
Other film credits include Fast Food Nation, Southland Tales, The Legend of Hell's Gate, The Go-Getter, The Chumscrubber and Explicit Ills.
On the small screen, Pucci appeared in Fred Schepisi's HBO movie "Empire Falls," alongside Paul Newman and Ed Harris. He also appeared on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" with Thumbsucker co-star Vincent D'Onofrio. Pucci was also seen in Green Day's "Jesus of Suburbia" video for director Samuel Bayer.
