About Michael Pitt
It all started when Michael was playing his part The Trestle, a play at the Pope Lick Creek. A casting agent happened to see him perform and was impressed by his skills. Michael was promptly recommended for the television program Dawson's Creek. Eventually, he got a guest role here and was seen in fifteen episodes that were telecasted between 1999 and 2000. That was just the beginning. Pitt received many more offers. Over the years, he has acted in The Village, Finding Forrester, Law and Order: SVU, Last Days, Funny Games, Boardwalk Empire and many others. Of course, Pitt was acting even before the agent spotted him. His first performance was at Law & Order in 1998.
It can be said that his breakout performance was in Hedwig, where Pitt played the role the transgender rock star’s lover. He is also widely known for the performance in 2001’s Angry Inch.
Michael has an active music career too that adds to his wealth. He has his own band Pagoda, where he plays the guitar and also sings. The group has released an album through Universal/Fontana/Ecstatic Peace. Pitt has performed the Hey Joe song with the Twins of Evil band. This song has been featured in The Dreamers movie.
In recent times, Michael Pitt has returned to television with the Boardwalk Empire for HBO.
