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 la mouche 2, 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'œil 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 »).

The movie tells the story of a feisty third-grader, Judy Moody, who sets out to have the most thrilling summer of her life. However, her parents (Kristoffer Winters and Janet Varney) are going to California to help Judy's grandparents. Judy and her brother Stink (Parris Mosteller) have to stay with their Aunt Opal (Heather Graham). Judy decides to organize a contest with her friends to see who can have the most exciting summer. To win the contest, you must have a certain amount of "thrill points". At the start of her summer, it starts to go bad. All of her friends leave and go to someplace on a summer vacation, except for Frank (Preston Bailey). Amy was going to Borneo and Rocky was going to Circus Camp. Her friends keep sending her pictures of their summer, so she tries to top them, so she can earn more thrill points than them. But Frank was ruining all her plans because he knocked Judy off a tight rope, puked all over her on a roller coaster, and left the theater in the middle of a scary movie. All of her ideas go bad, so she decides to stay in her room for the rest of the summer, until she hears the newscast in front of her house. She looks out of the window and discovers that Stink is going to be on the news, because of his search for Bigfoot. She runs outside and tries to jump into the camera, but unfortunately, the camera crew stops the cameras from filming her.
