MICHAEL PITT (Tommy Uva) is known for his gripping and unforgettable performances, working with talented filmmakers such as Academy Award and Palme d'Or winners Martin Scorsese, Gus Van Sant, Bernardo Bertolucci, Michael Haneke and Larry Clark. Haneke cast Pitt in his U.S. remake of Funny Games, alongside Tim Roth and Naomi Watts. Bertolucci cast him opposite Eva Green in his cult classic The Dreamers, nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film. Van Sant chose Pitt to play the lead role in Last Days and score the film. Inspired by the life and death of Kurt Cobain, Last Days was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Pitt stars opposite Brit Marling and Astrid Berges-Frisbey in the forthcoming I Origins, a scifi drama seen through the eyes of a molecular biologist whose discoveries make us question conventional views of love, death, science and spirituality. The film is directed by Mike Cahill, whose first feature Another Earth won two awards at the Sundance Film Festival.

Pitt has just completed work on You Can't Win, based on the classic underground memoir by Jack Black. The story of a transient thief in the early 1900s, the book greatly influenced William Burroughs and the Beat Generation. Pitt stars in, co-wrote and produced the film adaptation directed by Rob Devor.

Other film credits include Silk, with Keira Knightley; Delirious, opposite Steve Buscemi; M. Night Shyamalan's The Village, alongside Joaquin Phoenix, Adrien Brody and William Hurt; and Gus Van Sant's Finding Forrester, with Sean Connery and Anna Paquin, which was an official selection at the Berlin Film Festival.

Small-screen credits include Martin Scorsese's Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning HBO series "Boardwalk Empire," opposite Steve Buscemi, Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg and Kelly MacDonald.

Pitt's first job as an actor was his Off Broadway debut in "The Trestle at Lick Creek," written by award-winning playwright Naomi Wallace. His other theater credits include Mary Shelley's "Monster," at Classic Stage, and "Birdy," directed by Naomi Wallace at Duke University.

Pitt was introduced to the Sundance Film Festival in his debut feature Hedwig and the Angry Inch, directed by John Cameron Mitchell. The film won Home Audience and Best Director awards. His next role came in Larry Clark's indie drama Bully, nominated for the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival, and his first studio film was acclaimed director Barbet Schroeder's Murder by Numbers, co-starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling.

In addition to his score for Last Days, Pitt has produced original music compositions for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island and The Heart Is Deceitful above All Things, Asia Argento's adaptation of the J.T. Leroy novel. He has also performed on stage with Patti Smith and Thurston Moore, is the front man for alternative rock band Pagoda, and is currently working on a solo record.
