Who is Michael Pitt?

Michael Pitt is an extremely talented actor who's appeared in such critically acclaimed films as The Dreamers, Funny Games, Delirious, Bully, and Gus Vansant's Last Days, where he portrayed a troubled rock star based on late Nirvana front man, Kurt Cobain.

In 2010 Michael Pitt reunited with Delirious co-star, Steve Buscemi, to star in the Martin Scorsese produced HBO serial crime drama Boardwalk Empire.

Pitt is also a musician who sings and plays guitar in his band Pagoda, whose self-titled debut album has been released by Universal/Fontana/Ecstatic Peace. With the Twins of Evil, he performed "Hey Joe," which can be heard in Pitts 2003 film, The Dreamers.

Three reasons to love Michael Pitt

1.) A musician as well as an actor, Pitt composed and sang two songs for his 2005 film Last Days.

2.) He was ranked #9 on Entertainment Weekly's '30 Under 30' the actors list. (2008).

3.) Together with Alexis Dziena, Ryan Donowho and Bennie Slay, he is in a group of actors known as "The Eastsiders" - as they were spotted by casting director Lori Eastside - who was the female lead singer for Kid Creole and the Coconuts, a choreographer for Mick Jagger and was in Get Crazy (1983) with Lou Reed.

Jailbait
Jailbait

Randy commits a victimless crime that would normally get him probation and a hefty fine, but in the "three-strikes" world of justice, he finds himself locked up for 25 years. His cellmate Jake is a congenial yet remorseless lifer who casually informs Randy that he slit his wife's throat because she slept with another man just three months after they exchanged vows. Jake recognizes Randy's fear and offers him advice on how to make it in prison. But it soon becomes clear that Jake has much more than mentoring in mind as he takes Randy under his wing. "Jailbait" sets a darkly cerebral tone, juxtaposing brutality with the unattainable ideal of intimacy in the harshest of psychological environments. For these two men so yearning to be anything but who they are and where they are, power is the goal, and it's never clear who truly holds it right up to the last unsettling moment.
