TRIVIA:
  • (2006) Announced the formation of his own production company, 2 Bridges Productions, with his brother Devin, as a co-producer and creative partner.
  • Was injured severely enough to be hospitalized twice during the filming of _Poseidon (2006)_ (qv). First, co-star 'Kurt Russell (I)' (qv) accidentally hit him with a flashlight in the right eye during an underwater swimming sequence and the resulting cut required 16 stitches and several days off. The second and more serious injury occurred on the next-to-last day of filming when Josh fell 15-20 feet and tore ligaments and muscles in his left thumb, which required a 5-hour surgery to reattach the muscle and 6-8 weeks in a cast. He is still undergoing physical therapy and rehab to get more movement back in his thumb.
  • Decided not to go to college in order to pursue his acting career.
  • Was considered for the role of Captain Christopher Pike in _Star Trek (2009)_ (qv). However, 'Bruce Greenwood (I)' (qv) was cast instead.
  • Dated Alexa Davalos 2006-2008.
  • Also has two sisters. One of whom, along with Josh, is in the research and planning stages of starting up Mighty's Fast Food, a restaurant that will promote healthier fare and use of organic, local produce.
  • Born in Arkansas in 1971 and christened Joshua Lucas Easy Dent Maurer. His parents lived on an Native American reservation, and they named him based on things that happened there. His birth was so easy that the doctor hit his head on the bedpost and injured himself.
  • Parents are Don and Michelle (LeFevre) Maurer. Father is an emergency room doctor; mother is a nurse and midwife. Michelle attended Emerson College with 'Jay Leno' (qv).
