Joe Mazzello: From 'Jurassic' to 'Pacific'

Joe Mazzello: From 'Jurassic' to 'Pacific'

Joe Mazzello, best known for his role as Tim Murphy in Jurassic Park, is all grown up – and acting in Stephen Spielberg‘s The Pacific!

The 26-year-old actor, who will play Marine Eugene Sledge in Spielberg‘s 10-part WWII drama on HBO, told Details he went through a seriously intense ten-day boot camp in Australia to prepare for his role.

“Everything kills you there – every plant, every animal. Even you yourself become toxic,” Joe said. “If you touch somebody, you’ll kill them.”

Joe will also appear in next fall’s The Social Network alongside Justin Timberlake.

Yeah, he survived the dreaded, “Once was cute but grew up not so well” child star curse (see Danny Bonaduce)

he was an adorable child actor too!

Sounds exciting, is Spielberg doing another “Band of Brothers” with this one?

WOW Joseph Mazzello! great guy!!

@Frida: Yep, but this time it’s about the Pacific Theatre.
loved Band of Brothers, so I’m sure this one is going to be great also.

and Joe did grow up hot ;D

Oh my Gosh, he definitely grew up nice =) He’s so handsome now. In Jurassic Park, he was very cute already XD Ugh, I wish him luck. I definitely like him a lot since he played in one of my favorite classic movies of all time :)

Aww he’s a cutie! Can’t wait to see if his acting skills match up.

What’s with the black and white?
