Dan Futterman had an impressive run for a young actor, transitioning easily between stage, television and film for fifteen years before penning the Academy Award-nominated script for "Capote" (2005) and deciding to put his acting on hold. From his breakthrough role as the straight son of Robin Williams in "The Birdcage" (1996) to a popular recurring spot on "Judging Amy" (CBS, 1999-2005) to a stint in "Angels in America" on Broadway, Futterman always lent a sparkling intelligence and grounded presence to his work. After briefly returning from his foray into screenwriting, Futterman delivered a sterling performance in the emotionally-charged political drama "A Mighty Heart" (2007), playing slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, a role that helped propel an already accelerating career.
