It was on this day in 1976 that a doe-eyed boy was born in West Hollywood, CA. His name: Lukas Haas. The boy pursued a movie star career from his earliest days and was recognized often at the Young Artist Awards. His popular recognition, however, was most prevalent after playing a young Amish boy opposite Harrison Ford in Peter Weirâ€™s 1985 film, Witness. Since then Haas has grown and so have his acting challenges. His career includes roles in Boys opposite Winona Ryder, Woody Allen’s Everyone Says I Love You, Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks! and the 2005 independent features Brick and Last Days.
Preview: Haasâ€™ most recent project is Gardener of Eden, about the lengths a man will go to for some long-overdue attention. The film is directed by Kevin Connolly, the discerning manager of HBO’s “Entourage”.
