Eric Stoltz (born September 30, 1961) is an American actor, director and producer. He is known for playing the role of Rocky Dennis in the biographical drama film Mask, which earned him the nomination for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, and has appeared in a wide variety of films from mainstream fare like Some Kind of Wonderful to independent films like Pulp Fiction, Killing Zoe, and Kicking and Screaming. In 2010, he portrayed Daniel Graystone in the science fiction television series Caprica, and became a regular director on the television series Glee.

Biography

Il est notamment connu pour être apparu au cinéma dans Mask et Pulp Fiction.

À la télévision, il incarne le Dr. Robert Yeats dans la cinquième saison de La Vie à tout prix (Chicago Hope). En 2010, il prête ses traits à Daniel Graystone dans Caprica.

Eric Stoltz a par ailleurs été initialement choisi pour interpréter le rôle de Marty McFly dans le film Retour vers le futur, car Michael J. Fox, que les scénaristes souhaitaient embaucher, était retenu sur le sitcom Sacrée Famille. Mais après cinq semaines de tournage, le réalisateur Robert Zemeckis et le producteur Steven Spielberg jugèrent que la prestation d'Eric Stoltz, bien qu'irréprochable sur le plan technique, n'était pas assez drôle pour le film. Finalement Michael J. Fox put se libérer et interpréter le rôle de Marty, et toutes les scènes réalisées avec Eric Stoltz furent retournées. Un clin d'oeil à cela apparaît dans le 16e épisode de la saison 2 de Fringe. Dans l'univers parallèle, on peut apercevoir l'entrée du cinéma indiquant « Back to the Future, starring Eric Stoltz » (en français : « Retour vers le futur, avec Eric Stoltz »).
