Thomas Mann (born September 27, 1991)[1] is an American actor. He is best known for his role as Thomas in Project X.[2]

Early life[edit]

Mann grew up in Dallas, Texas.[1]

Acting career[edit]

In 2009, Mann made his acting debut on the Nickelodeon sitcom television series iCarly.[3] 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.[4]

That same year, Mann was cast as the protagonist in the comedy film Project X.[5] 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.[6] 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.[7] A planned sequel was in development in 2012.[8]

In March 2012, Mann was in final negotiations to star in a film adaptation of the 2006 novel King Dork.[9] It was optioned in November 2006 by Gary Sanchez Productions, a joint production company founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.[10]
