Born 30 September, 1961 Los Angeles, California, Eric Stoltz is a theater trained actor and producer who has starred in both independent and studio films. Born to two teachers in Los Angeles, Eric was raised in both American Samoa and Santa Barbara California, where by the age of 14 he was earning money by playing piano for the local musical theater productions, including "Mame" starring Anthony Edwards (I). The two became friends, and then college roommates when both attended the University of Southern California. Dropping out in his Junior year, Eric joined a repertory company that did 10 plays at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, UK. Moving to New York in 1981, he studied with Stella Adler and Peggy Feury (I), and soon appeared in his first film, Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982).

In 1988, he made his Broadway debut in Our Town (1989) (TV), for which he was nominated for a Tony Award. In the 1990's he went back and forth from stage to film, building up an eclectic resume that included studio films (Pulp Fiction (1994)), independent films (Sundance Festival Winner The Waterdance (1992)), and films that he himself produced ( Mr. Jealousy (1997)). He also continued to appear on the New York Stage both on Broadway (Three Sisters, Two Shakespearean Actors) and off-Broadway (The Importance of Being Ernest, The Glass Menagerie). He continues to work in television as well, doing a recurring role as Helen Hunt (I)'s ex on "Mad About You" (1992), a year on "Chicago Hope" (1994), and in the tv and cable movies Inside (1996) (TV) (directed by Arthur Penn (I)), A Killer in the Family (1983) (TV) (with Robert Mitchum) and The Passion of Ayn Rand (1999) (with Helen Mirren).
