Biography[edit]

Leo Fitzpatrick was born in Montclair, New Jersey. He was discovered at age 14 by director Larry Clark at Washington Square Park in New York City, skateboarding. Fitzpatrick was trying to perform certain skating tricks, and every time he was unsuccessful, he would scream and curse. Clark cast him in the movie Kids and later in his follow-up feature, Bully.[2]

Fitzpatrick has claimed that some people have harassed him because of the character he played in Kids, believing it was a documentary instead of fiction.[3]

He appeared in other films including Storytelling and City of Ghosts and in the HBO series Carnivàle, Some Guy Who Kills People and The Wire.[4]

After finishing Storytelling, he was cast in the Robert Redford vehicle The Last Castle (2001). Two days before filming was to begin, he was in Los Angeles and was leaving a friend's party and was hit by a drunk driver. His leg suffered severe nerve and muscle damage, and he was unable to walk for a month and had to go through physical therapy. He was dropped from The Last Castle as a result.

In 2000, he appeared in Bam Margera's CKY2K. He also appeared in CKY3 in 2001.

In 2010, Fitzpatrick appeared in FX's TV series Sons of Anarchy.
