Nicolas Kent "Nick" Stahl (born December 5, 1979) is an American actor. Starting out as a child actor, he gained recognition for his performance in the 1993 film The Man Without a Face and then embarked on a successful career as a child actor. He later transitioned into his adult career with roles in In the Bedroom, Bully, Sin City, the HBO series Carnivàle, and the film Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, in which he took over the role of John Connor, originally played by Edward Furlong. He also starred in the 2010 film Mirrors 2.
The 1993 film The Man Without a Face, co-starring Mel Gibson, helped boost his career at the age of 13. His first professional casting was in Stranger at My Door, although he had been acting in children's plays since he was four years old. In 1996 he played the role of Puck in Benjamin Britten's opera A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Metropolitan Opera in New York. In 1998 he played a doomed young soldier during the World War II Pacific War in The Thin Red Line.
Recent films include How to Rob a Bank (2007), Sleepwalking (2008), Quid Pro Quo (2008). Stahl has played two villains: Bobby Kent in the film Bully and Roark Jr./Yellow Bastard in Sin City. Stahl did not reprise his role as John Connor in Terminator Salvation. Instead Christian Bale took over. Stahl noted the film's concept as a "a jump to the future, so my character will be quite a bit older." Stahl starred as Max Matheson in the sequel to Mirrors, directed by Victor Garcia and penned by Matt Venne.

On December 27, 2012 he was arrested in a Los Angeles adult movie store for allegedly committing a lewd act. He was charged with a misdemeanor for 'lewd conduct' while watching a movie in a supposedly private booth.
After their separation, the Stahls continued to have issues over custody of Marlo. Rose filed court papers in February 2012 requesting sole legal and physical custody. She was willing to allow her estranged husband visitation, but only with supervision and on the condition that he refrain from consuming drugs and alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to any visit and provide her with a copy of negative drug test results at least six hours prior.
Stahl was seen, intoxicated, at a bar in downtown Los Angeles on May 2, 2012. According to Rose, she last saw Stahl on May 9 and believes he was in the Skid Row neighborhood near downtown Los Angeles at that time. However, friends of his told E! Online that they saw him the morning of May 10 carrying boxes into another friend's apartment in West Hollywood. While he had been known to disappear in the past, it was usually for no longer than a day. He never carried a cell phone, so he could not be tracked that way.
On May 14, 2012, Rose reported Stahl missing. Four days later, at 10 p.m. May 18, Stahl sent an email to his friends saying he would be in drug rehabilitation for the next 30 days. Rose said she was relieved but skeptical that he really was in rehab.
