September 27, 1991 |
Portland, Oregon, U.S.
Life and career
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.
