Life and career
Lofland was born in Briggsville, Arkansas, the son of Billy and Debra Lofland.
He began his film career playing Neckbone in Jeff Nichols' Mud, with Matthew McConaughey and Tye Sheridan. The director wanted to find a young actor locally for the part of "Neckbone" in Mud, and had casting notices placed in regional newspapers. Coming across one of them, Lofland's mother recognized that her son fit every adjective of Neck's personality description, as well as bringing the boating and cycle riding experience for which Jeff was looking. Loftland sent in an application, and was called in to read for the casting director in Little Rock. Less than three weeks after his mother saw the open casting call in the paper, Lofland took his first plane ride to Austin to audition for Jeff Nichols and producer Sarah Green. He was offered the role and within a month found himself on location with a full movie crew.
When Lofland is not acting he enjoys fishing, boating, hunting, and riding dirt bikes, which he began at the age of six.
