Haley Joel Osment began his career at age five with a featured appearance in a TV commercial for Pizza Hut. With his blond hair, expressive blue eyes and moon face, this juvenile player soon landed his first screen role as Forest Junior in the Oscar-winning "Forest Gump" (1994). Osment segued to TV series, playing the adorable grandson of a gruff Edward Asner in the short-lived ABC sitcom "Thunder Alley" (1994-95) followed by a two-year stint as Jeff Foxworthy's son in "The Jeff Foxworthy Show" (ABC, 1995-96; NBC, 1996-97). The busy young actor continued to land guest roles including a recurring stint as Candice Bergen's son Avery Brown on the CBS sitcom "Murphy Brown" in it final season and memorable turns as a boy genius on "The Pretender" in 1998 and a cancer-stricken boy determined to sue God on a moving episode of "Ally McBeal" in 1999. Additionally, Osment appeared in TV-movies more than holding his own acting alongside such veterans as Tom Selleck ("Last Stand at Saber River", TNT 1997), Christopher Lloyd ("The Ransom of Red Chief", ABC, 1998) and Maureen O'Hara ("Cab to Canada", CBS 1998).

Bonus Trivia


"Haley Joel Osment is a very good actor in a film where his character possibly has more lines than anyone else. He's in most of the scenes, and he has to act in them - this isn't a role for a cute kid who can stand there and look solemn in reaction shots. There are fairly involved dialogue passages between [Bruce] Willis and Osment that require good timing, reactions and the ability to listen. Osment is more than equal to them." - Roger Ebert's review of "The Sixth Sense" in The Chicago Sun-Times, Aug. 6, 1999


On July 20, 2006, Osment was injured when his car struck a mailbox and overturned near his home. One month later Osment was charged with three misdemeanors including driving under the influence. On Oct. 19, 2006, Osment pleaded no contest to one count each of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol, and possession of marijuana while driving. He was sentenced to three years probation, 60 hours in an alcohol rehabilitation and education program and a fine of $1500.
