Michael Pitt Boardwalk Empire
Pitt was cast as Jimmy Darmody in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire (about the rise of Atlantic City during the Prohibition era) in 2010, as the protégé of corrupt politician Nucky Thompson, played by Delirious co-star Steve Buscemi. He appeared in the show’s first two seasons and was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Critics’s Choice Award for his performance. He was cast in the recurring role of Mason Verger in the NBC series Hannibal in 2014 playing the role in the show’s second season. He later left and was replaced by Joe Anderson.
Michael Pitt Actor
Pitt earned a breakout role as the lover of a transgender rock star named Hedwig in the film adaptation of John Cameron Mitchell’s Tony Award-winning production Hedwig and the Angry Inch in 2001. Although not his first film role, Pitt’s performance as Tommy Gnosis led to a series of supporting roles in many acclaimed and often controversial films, including Larry Clark’s Bully, Murder by Numbers, and Funny Games, a remake of Michael Haneke’s 1997 film of the same name. One of Pitt’s more notable roles was as the lead in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers.
Pitt attributes his success in films to a combination of hard work and the presence of “a few angels in my life.” He has also stressed that he chooses roles not with the hope that they will garner commercial success or to gain notoriety but to create art, challenge the audience, and ultimately contribute to a project that he is proud of:
Pitt has also appeared in Asia Argento’s Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things and M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village and starred in Gus Van Sant’s Last Days as a rock musician “inspired” by Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. He performed all of the songs, which closely resembled Cobain’s guitar and singing styles.
On the set of Last Days, Pitt met Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, who had been hired by Van Sant to serve as the film’s music consultant. The two formed a close bond, with Moore writing, “[Gus] wanted me to hang out with Michael and talk about his character, and let him be in character. We ended up spending a lot of time together. My daughter Coco still relates to Michael as Blake from ‘Last Days'”.
He starred in the unconventional romantic comedy Delirious in 2006 as a young homeless man who befriends a celebrity photographer and falls in love with a pop singer. The movie appeared at the Sundance Film Festival. The following year, he played opposite Keira Knightley in Silk, adapted from the novel by Alessandro Baricco, as Hervé Joncour, a French silkworm smuggler, who falls in love with a baron’s concubine while in Japan.
Pitt juggled two starring roles in 2014, as Tommy Uva in the comedic American crime drama Rob the Mob and as a molecular biologist in search of the truth about the origins of the eye in the aptly-named I Origins.
Pitt starred in the science fiction action film Ghost in the Shell as the villanous hacker, Kuze, the Laughing Man in 2017.
