Paul Iacono continues to rise as one of Young Hollywood's most promising stars. A New Yorker through-and-through, Iacono graduated from the Professional Performing Arts School and has performed in over fifty theatrical readings, workshops, and shows -- all by the age of 19.
Audiences will next see Iacono star in "The Hard Times Of R.J. Berger," a TV series for MTV in Los Angeles in which he plays the lead character R.J. Berger.
Iacono was most recently seen in MGM's remake of "Fame" in which he played Neil Baczynsky, the ambitious and aspiring filmmaker.
Some of his favorites theatrical shows include "Sail Away" at Carnegie Hall with Elaine Strich and Marian Seldes, "Mame" opposite Christine Ebersol at the Papermill Play House, John Guare's "Landscape of the Body" with Lili Taylor and Sherie Rene Scott, and the Drama Desk Award-winning revival of William Inge's "The Dark at the Top of the Stairs."
Paul has appeared in several independent films, including "Consent," "Glow Ropes," "Return to Sleepaway Camp," "Winter Solstice" and "Parrot Beach." On television, Paul can be heard as the voice of Benny the Bull on Nickelodeon's "Dora the Explorer." He played Billy Boy in the MTV sketch comedy show "Human Giant," and has made appearances on the soap operas "Guiding Light," "As the World Turns" and "Another World."
Paul's other passion is play/screenplay writing. His new play "Prince/Elizabeth" recently received its first reading in Manhattan, featuring Taylor Momsen and Connor Paolo of "Gossip Girl."
When not acting, Paul is proud to do charity work for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of America and currently serves as a spokesperson for the Tomorrows Children's Fund.
Some of the writers/filmmakers he aspires to work with include Tony Kushner, Aaron Sorkin, P.T. Anderson, and Wes Anderson.
