He was a regular cast member on the NBC drama series Law & Order: LA (2010–2011), and portrayed Darren Cross (also known as Yellowjacket) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Ant-Man. Other notable roles include a 2004 Off-Broadway performance of Intimate Apparel, portraying Ernest Hemingway in the 2011 romantic comedy film Midnight in Paris and bulldog prosecutor Fred Wyshak in Black Mass.
Stoll was born on the Upper West Side of New York City, New York. He is the son of Judith and Stephen Stoll, who is the co-founder of The Beacon School. Stoll was raised Jewish. He studied drama at Long Lake Camp for the Arts from 1988 through 1992. He was a Drama Department graduate of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. He graduated from Oberlin College in 1998, and from New York University's Graduate Acting Program at the Tisch School of the Arts in 2003.
In 2004, Stoll received a Drama Desk Award nomination as Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play for Intimate Apparel, opposite Tony winner and Oscar nominee Viola Davis. He went on to appear in several films, including North Country, Lucky Number Slevin, the television film A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, and Push. In 2010, he appeared in Helena from the Wedding and Salt.
Stoll starred as LAPD Detective Tomas "TJ" Jaruszalski on the NBC police drama Law & Order: LA. He played Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen's 2011 film Midnight in Paris. Stoll, who is mostly bald, wore a custom wig for the role. In 2013, Stoll received a Golden Globe Award nomination for his performance in the Netflix series House of Cards. After House of Cards, he joined the FX horror television series The Strain, which is based on a series of novels written by Chuck Hogan and film director Guillermo Del Toro.
In 2014, Stoll also played Austin Reilly, an NYPD police officer, in the action film Non-Stop, and Paul Altman in the comedy-drama This Is Where I Leave You. In 2015, Stoll played Ben Day in the film Dark Places, based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, and had a major role in the superhero film Ant-Man, playing Darren Cross, reimagined as the supervillain Yellowjacket. The following year, he reunited with Woody Allen, playing gangster Ben Dorfman in his 2016 film Café Society.
Stoll and his girlfriend, actress Nadia Bowers, became engaged in October 2014. The couple wed on June 21, 2015. They welcomed their first child in October 2015. Bowers is a descendant of Maximilian de Beauharnais, 3rd Duke of Leuchtenberg, of the Dukes of Leuchtenberg, and of Napoleon's first wife, Joséphine de Beauharnais (though she is not a descendant of Napoleon himself).
