Ryan Malgarini - Rotten Tomatoes

Ryan Malgarini



Ryan Malgarini grew up in Las Vegas under the guardianship of his grandparents and expressed an interest in a professional acting career from the age of five, when he witnessed his grandmother's involvement in a nationally broadcast television spot. After appearing opposite her (and the late Lou Rawls) in a commercial, and then essaying similar assignments on television spots for McDonald's and Washington Mutual Savings Bank, Malgarini secured Los Angeles-area representation as a child actor. He took one of his earliest onscreen bows with a small role opposite Kevin Spacey and Lena Olin in the grim psychological drama The United States of Leland (2002), then landed turns in the family-oriented outings Freaky Friday (2003) (as the son of Jamie Lee Curtis and the brother of Lindsay Lohan) and How to Eat Fried Worms (2006). In 2008, he signed on to play Tom Barns, the socially backward 14-year-old son of Jay Mohr and Paula Marshall, on the sitcom Gary Unmarried.
