From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Rory Hugh Culkin (born July 21, 1989 in New York City, New York), is an American child actor who found his way to fame from his eldest brother Macaulay Culkin.

Born into an acting family, the youngest of all seven Culkin children, he began acting by playing alongside his elder brothers, often as the younger versions of their characters. He first appeared in a photograph as a baby in The Good Son (1993), then as Young Richie in Richie Rich (1994) and in 2002 playing 10-Year-Old Igby in Igby Goes Down (Igby was played by his older brother Kieran Culkin). Rory's breakthrough role was in You Can Count On Me, opposite Laura Linney, a role for which he received much praise and a Young Artist Award. He was even heralded by some sources as being the first Culkin who could really act. Since then, Rory has appeared in numerous films, Signs being the most famous, in which he starred alongside Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix. As a teenager, Rory started moving into more independent films, such as The Chumscrubber and Down in the Valley. He took a leading role in Mean Creek, a 2004 independent film about a group of teenagers that plan to get revenge on a bully. The entire youth cast won an Independent Spirit Award for this film. Since his Young Artist Award win for You Can Count on Me, Rory has received three more nominations.

Rory's hobbies include playing the drums and drawing, and he also tries to meet his brothers once a week so they can all hang out together and play video games.
