Pierce Gagnon (born July 25, 2005) is an American child actor. He is known for his roles in the film Looper and in the CBS series Extant. In 2017, he began voicing Tim Templeton in the Netflix series The Boss Baby: Back in Business.
In January 2011, he was cast in the action thriller film Looper as Cid Harrington, a child with unusual telekinetic abilities, who becomes a warlord called the "Rainmaker". Rian Johnson said, "Looking back I'm kind of terrified that I hinged the success of the backend of the movie on finding someone like Pierce. It's really rare to find a kid who can do what he does. He would do three-page dialogue scenes with Emily [Blunt] and Joe [Gordon-Levitt] and hold his own against them all the way through."
After voicing Tiago in Rio 2, the sequel to the 2011 film Rio, Gagnon played Tucker Bloom in the comedy-drama film Wish I Was Here. He played Ethan Woods, the android son of Molly Woods (Halle Berry), in the CBS science fiction drama series Extant. Gagnon was named one of the best actors under twenty years of age.
In 2017 he played Sonny Jim Jones, the son of Agent Cooper and Jane Jones (Naomi Watts), in the Showtime series Twin Peaks. From 2018 he has voiced the character of Timmy Templeton on the Netflix animated series The Boss Baby: Back in Business.
