Though he was on the precipice of becoming just another teen idol, thanks to his recurring role of high school football player Henry Parker on "Dawson's Creek" (The WB, 1998-2003), actor Michael Pitt turned instead to gritty performances in independent movies like "Hedwig and the Angry Itch" (2001) and "Bully" (2002). Because of his eye-catching roles in those two films, Pitt was able to breakthrough into studio fare like "Murder by Numbers" (2002) and "The Village" (2004). Not wanting to be trapped in unchallenging parts, the actor continued to expand his range in the indie world with turns as a reclusive man who descends into madness in "Rhinoceros Eyes" (2003) and as a troubled rock star modeled after Kurt Cobain in Gus Van Sant's "Last Days" (2005). Following major roles in the showbiz satire "Delirious" (2006), the heartbreaking romantic drama "Silk" (2007), and Michael Haneke's shot-for-shot remake of his thriller "Funny Games" (2008), the versatile Pitt became a series regular on the acclaimed television drama, "Boardwalk Empire" (HBO, 2010-14), which only underscored the young actor's wide-ranging talents and appeal.

QUOTES FROM Michael Pitt CHARACTERS

Sofi says: When I saw you that night I had the feeling that I knew you, actually I felt that you knew me.

Dr. Ian Gray says: What do you mean?

Sofi says: Like we where connected from past lives.

Dr. Ian Gray says: I don't belive in that.

Dr. Ian Gray says: What's your favorite flower?

Sofi says: Dandelions.

Dr. Ian Gray says: Okay. Why?

Sofi says: 'Cause, they're free, wild, and you can't buy them.

Dr. Ian Gray says: Where are you from?

Sofi says: Another planet.

Zach says: You screwed us.

Eddie says: Occupational hazard.

Blake says: You know, it's kinda like... Success is subjective, you know. It could be an opinion.

Randy says: I badly wanted to reach through the screen and break him out.

Matthew says: The first time I saw a movie at the cinématèque française I thought, "Only the French... only the French would house a cinema inside a palace."

Matthew says: I don't believe in God, but if I did, he would be a black, left-handed guitarist.

Matthew says: It makes films like crimes, and directors like criminals.

Matthew says: As we walked, we talked and talked and talked about politics, about movies, and about why the French could never come close to producing a good rock band.

Matthew says: I was one of the insatiables. The ones you'd always find sitting closest to the screen. Why do we sit so close? Maybe it was because we wanted to receive the images first. When they were still new, still fresh. Before they cleared the hurdles of the rows behind us. Before they'd been relayed back from row to row, spectator to spectator; until worn out, secondhand, the size of a postage stamp, it returned to the projectionist's cabin. Maybe, too, the screen was really a screen. It screened us... from the world.

Matthew says: Yes, I'm drunk. And you're beautiful. And tomorrow morning, I'll be sober but you'll still be beautiful.

Matthew says: I don't want to be loved very much, I just want to be loved.

Blake says: I lost something on my way to wherever i am today...

Blake says: I lost something on my way... to... wherever... I am today

Blake says: I lost something on my way... to... wherever... I am today.

Paul says: We're not up to feature film length yet.
