When Hale Appleman debuted onscreen in his early twenties, he immediately displayed a mature and interesting predilection for role choice by taking his initial bows in two distinctly offbeat and challenging American films. Appleman officially debuted in the gently observed period drama Beautiful Ohio (2006) as Elliot, the best friend and confidant of a teenage prodigy (David Call), then followed it up with a turn as a young virgin who crosses the chastity line with a local girl and gets the shock of his life in Mitchell Lichtenstein's grisly horror comedy Teeth (2007).
