He has since starred in film and television, with roles on series including As the World Turns, One Life to Live, All My Children, Hostages, and House of Cards, and roles in films including Alone in the Dark, Plain Clothes, Vanya on 42nd Street, Dead Man Walking, Before and After, The Royal Tenenbaums, Maid in Manhattan, Melinda and Melinda, Killing Kasztner, Moonrise Kingdom, Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian, and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

In 1978, he made his film debut in James Ivory's Hullabaloo Over Georgie and Bonnie's Pictures,[3] which was made for television but later released theatrically.[citation needed] Since then, he has performed in Louis Malle's Vanya on 42nd Street[4] and Woody Allen's Celebrity, Small Time Crooks,[5] and Melinda and Melinda,[6] among other films. Pine appears in the book Are You Dave Gorman? as the first actor the writer encounters to have played a fictional Dave Gorman (in The Ice Storm).[7] In both The Royal Tenenbaums and The Door in the Floor, he appears as a Charlie Rose-type interviewer, conducting a one-on-one interview in a dark studio.[8] From 1997 to 1999, Pine portrayed Barry Shire #1 on All My Children.[9]
