His parents run a children's drama camp and are theater directors.
Beat out 20,000 other boys to win the role of the son of Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett's characters in the 2006 film Babel, for which he received a Young Artist Award nomination.

(Melinda McGraw played his mother in that film and was again cast as his mother in the short-lived 2009 sitcom Hank.)
