    In high school: I acted in my first real play and I began doing educational films and I worked on the Saturday morning show 'The New Lassie'.

    In 1993: I had the title role in Michael Caton-Jones' screen adaptation of Tobias Wolff's 'This Boy's Life', and later that year, I played Johnny Depp's mentally retarded younger brother in Lasse Hallström's 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape'. I won an nomination for Best Supporting Actor for this performance.

    In 1995: I played in Sam Raimi's Western 'The Quick and the Dead', in 'Total Eclipse' (in which I was Rimbaud) and in 'The Basketball Diaries', in which I starred as a struggling junkie.
    One year later: The success of the film 'William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet' gave me international . I was compared to James Dean. I starred in 'Marvin's Room' with Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep, and Robert DeNiro

    2001: I made an appearance in the small independent film 'Don's Plum', but I didn't like it and tried to prevent a US of it

    2002: I was as the protagonist in 'Gangs of New York', directed by Martin Scorsese. I played in Steven Spielberg's 'Catch Me if You Can'.

    It told the true-life tale of Frank Abagnale, Jr., an artist racking-up over $2.5 million in fraudulent while jet-setting in twenty-six countries.
