Nat Wolff          

Actor Known for His Roles in "The Fault in Our Stars" & "Paper Towns"

Nat Wolff is an American actor, singer-songwriter, composer, keyboardist and guitarist. Wolff gained recognition for starring in and composing the music for the Nickelodeon musical comedy series "The Naked Brothers Band," which was created and produced by his actress mother Polly Draper and earned him a Broadcast Music, Inc. Cable Award in 2007.

Wolff's jazz pianist father Michael Wolff co-produced two of he and his brother's soundtrack albums titled The Naked Brothers Band and I Don't Want to Go to School; the former of which ranked No. 23 on the Top 200 Billboard Charts. Nat and his younger actor and musician brother Alex Wolff, who also co-starred in the series, formed a duo called Nat & Alex Wolff, and they released an album titled Black Sheep in 2011.

When Nat and his younger brother Alex were toddlers, they arose from the bathtub shouting, "We're the naked brothers band!" Their father tells of Nat teaching himself to play major and minor chords on the piano when he was four years old.

Nat first gained notice in the wake of the September 11 attacks when he held his birthday party outside his apartment, which is where he performed his composition titled "Firefighters." The benefit concert was a success; it raised over $46,000 and was donated to the children of New York City Fire Department's Squad 18. Alex eventually joined the band as the drummer; both boys were emboldened by The Beatles.

He began his acting career Off-Broadway with a minor role in his mother's playwright "Getting Into Heaven" and in the Off-Broadway production of "Heartbeat to Baghdad," both at The Flea Theater. He later gained recognition, at the age of 9, for starring in, contributing lead vocals, instrumentation and lyrics for the 2005 musical comedy film "The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie," which was written and directed by his mother and had obtained the Audience Award for a Family Feature Film at the Hamptons International Film Festival. The film was bought by Nickelodeon as the pilot to the television series of the same name (2007-2009) which was created, written, produced and directed by his mother, while his father co-starred and produced and supervised the music. Moreover, Nat's younger brother was featured in the ensemble cast and also wrote and performed the music.

The series earned him one BMI Cable Award for composing the series' music, as well as two Young Artist Award nominations and one KCA nomination for Best TV Actor. The show produced two soundtrack albums and the single "Crazy Car" reached No. 23 on the Top 200 Billboard Charts. Wolff, who was 6 when he wrote the song, is believed to be the youngest person ever to compose a charting song on the Top 200 Billboard Charts.

Wolff's other film credits include appearing in the Nickelodeon TV movie special "Mr. Troop Mom," the romantic comedy "New Year's Eve" and the independent comedy-drama "Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding." Wolff starred alongside Tina Fey, Paul Rudd and Michael Sheen, in 2013 in the comedy film "Admission." He appeared in the film "The Fault in Our Stars" based on the best-selling book of the same name as well as "Behaving Badly" alongside Selena Gomez, Austin Stowell and Mary-Louise Parker. "The Fault in Our Stars" earned him two Teen Choice Awards in the categories of Movie Scene Stealer and Chemistry.

Most recently, Wolff stared in the film adaptation of the bestselling book by John Green, "Paper Towns." Wolff played the lead role of Quentin, a young man who embarks on an epic road trip to find the missing girl next door, Margo (played by Cara Delevingne).
