Joseph Mazzello - Child Star of Yesterday

Where'd he go? That cute little kid who starred in "Radio Flyer," "Jurrassic Park," and "The River Wild." Did he fall into the only cute as a young boy, not so cute as a young man syndrome?

Another casuality.

He took time out from acting to complete his schooling, and presently studies film at USC. I don't think he's even twenty yet.

Good actor; Could be the next Ron Howard...

Did you check IMDb?

Yeah, and it shows that he's 5'7" and there's no picture. That always worries me. You're right about his age - he was born in 1983, so he'd be about 20 now.

He was great in The Cure, which I wish Universal would release to DVD. Heck, where is Radio Flyer on DVD for that matter?!

I believe he's working behind the camera now, or getting ready to.

OMG I love that movie,I'd but a DVD for sure in OAR of course but according to imdb.com Columbia owns the rights so we can forget about ever seeing an OAR DVD of this Unless Columbia stops sucking

My apologies for going off topic but this thread got me thinking of another child actor gone MIA, what ever happened to the cutie pie from the My Girl movies, Anna Chlumsky?

Hell, all through American Beauty, I thought the slut girl was Anna Chlumsky. Alas, I was WRONG

Yeah, for two years there, he was in lots of high-profile stuff, and then he kinda disappeared. Then he did Can't Hardly Wait...and since then he's disappeared again.

From IMDb:

He currently serves as Deputy Domestic Policy Analyst for the House Republican Policy Committee of the U. S. House of Representatives.

Actually I can't blame you for thinking that. . .

He was in the CSI Epsiode "One Hit Wonder" and was on "Without A Trace" in the past year. He's also in the upcoming "Raising Helen" flick (Kate Hudson movie).

I remember seeing him in an ep of Without A Trace last fall. It took me a minute or two to recognize him.

Re: Joseph Mazzello - Child Star of Yesterday

heard he was in The Social Network, so I look forward to seeing how he did in the film. Will rent it from Redbox.

He was in The Social Network but it's a pretty small part. He's one of the leads in The Pacific.

Re: Joseph Mazzello - Child Star of Yesterday

apparently, David Fincher didn't even realize Joseph had been Jurassic Park, as he explains on the Social Network commentary track. It seems that Joe doesn't seem like to harp on his claim to fame on being 'that kid' from Jurassic Park.

It's not a very big part.

Try to spot Ernie from "My Three Sons". He's in it, too.

He was one of the leads in HBO's miniseries "The Pacific" last year.

Re: Joseph Mazzello - Child Star of Yesterday

I thought his performance in The Pacific was wretched, not so much for The Social Network

I was just about to shit all over the math...until I realized it was posted more than seven years ago.
