Thomas Mann (actor)
September 27, 1991 |
Portland, Oregon, U.S.
In 2009, Mann made his acting debut on the Nickelodeon sitcom television series iCarly. In October 2010 Mann made his film debut alongside Emma Roberts and Zach Galifianakis in the comedy-drama film It's Kind of a Funny Story.
That same year, Mann was cast as the protagonist in the comedy film Project X. Mann was told he could not audition for Project X because producers only wished to cast people without acting credits; Mann was ultimately given the role after auditioning seven times. The film centers on Mann's character Thomas Kub who throws a house party for his birthday that becomes totally out of hand. Filming began in June that same year in Los Angeles, California on a $12 million budget. A planned sequel was in development in 2012.
In March 2012, Mann was in final negotiations to star in a film adaptation of the 2006 novel King Dork. It was optioned in November 2006 by Gary Sanchez Productions, a joint production company founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
