House at the End of the Street - Profile on Max Thieriot
Check out his Creepy Hotness in House at the End of the Street
Available Now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy
Ryan might be a little strange in House at the End of the Street but he also is pretty freakin’ hot! In this feature we’ll look back at his appearances in Jumper and Chloe, his upcoming projects and his modelling career with GAP.
Max Thieriot was born in Los Altos Hills, California in 1988. He started acting when he took an improvisation class and was immediately noticed and signed up with an agent. With his good looks and acting talent obvious to all who knew him, Thieriot became a GAP model for a short time and appeared in two short films before starring in his first feature film role alongside Kristen Stewart and Corbin Bleu in Catch That Kid (2004). Always one to keep moving, Max was soon back in the cinema in 2005's The Pacifier (his largest grossing film to date), playing one of the family members protected by a Navy Seal played by Vin Diesel.
His third film, the drama The Astronaut Farmer (2007) found him playing the son of Billy Bob Thornton's character, and in Nancy Drew (2007) he starred opposite Emma Roberts. Thieriot’s next role was a smaller one but a role that got him noticed when he played a younger version of Hayden Christensen's lead character in Jumper in 2008 (co-starring with Rachel Bilson and, for the second time, with Kristen Stewart).
Theiriot branched out from previous genres In 2009, when he co-starred in the erotic thriller Chloe, released by Sony Pictures Classics in 2010. Chloe enjoyed commercial success and became director Atom Egoyan's biggest money-maker ever.
Max often remarks on how fortunate he has been to learn from some great actors:
“Liam (Neeson) and Billy (Bob Thornton) have really taught me a lot and were extremely helpful with decisions in scenes, " Max explains.” They also took time to talk to me many times one-on-one if I asked for help, advice, etc."
However, despite his fame, following and A-listers on speed dial, Max describes himself as a “small town farm-boy in general”. He enjoys hunting, basketball, wrestling, surfing, snowboarding, and other sports in his spare time, and has listed Johnny Depp as his favorite actor.
Johnny Depp may be his acting pin-up but Max will have to get used to his poster replacing Captain Jack’s before too long. With House at the End of the Street now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy, a role alongside Jason Bateman in Disconnect (April 2013), not to mention the highly anticipated “Bates Motel” - Max Theiriot is definitely a hottie worth watching over the next few months.
