Stoltz was exposed to theatre at an early age, playing the piano for local musical theatre productions. Later on, he would attend the University of Southern California, but dropped out after his junior year to go to New York and study.

During the 1970s, he joined a repertory company that performed during the Edinburgh Festival. He returned to the United States and went back to USC, but dropped out again to pursue various roles. One of his first notable performances was in the adaptation of “The Grass Is Always Greener Over The Septic Tank”. He then befriended director Cameron Crowe who worked on his first feature film entitled “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” in which he had a small role. He then continued to appear in Crowe’s films including “Singles” and “Jerry Maguire”. He was originally cast as Marty McFly in the “Back to the Future” films but was replaced when Michael J Fox agreed to the role. Regardless, his net worth was growing.

In 1985, Stoltz would achieve recognition when he became part of “Mask”, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination. This led to other films including “Some Kind of Wonderful” and “Pulp Fiction”. He also delved into production work, with projects such as “Mr. Jealousy”, and “Sleep Sisters”. He also continued to make stage performances such as “Arms and the Man” and “The Importance of Being Earnest”. He was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in “Our Town”. In 1994, he was cast in a recurring role in “Mad About You” which he played Helen Hunt’s ex-boyfriend. He then became part of “Chicago Hope” and “Inside”. All added to his net worth.

He continued appearing in projects during the 2000s, such as “The House of Mirth” and “Once and Again”. He then started directing work, while appearing in “The Butterfly Effect” and “Will & Grace”. A few of his directorial projects include “The Bulls”, “Law& Order” and “Grey’s Anatomy”. He also appeared in the series “Caprica”, and became a regular director of the hit television series “Glee”. One of his latest projects is the film “Fort McCoy”, in which he plays a conflicted German barber.

For his personal life, he dated Jennifer Jason Leigh from 1985 to 1989, and he lived with Ally Sheedy and later with Bridget Fonda. He is a vegetarian.

1Red hair and blue eyes
2Frequently works with Roger Avary
1(1992, on being private) I'm in one of the most public professions in existence. But I've always felt that the less you know about an actor's personal life, the more you can get involved in the story in which he's playing a character. And I don't like to see movies where you know about everything that happens behind the scenes. I can't engage in the story if I know what's going on in the actor's head. I don't want to see the zipper in the back of the monster suit. Like everybody else who goes to the movies, I want to believe the monster is real.
2(1992, on The Waterdance (1992)) The role required a lot of research. I spent every day for three or four months at the hospital, never getting out of the wheelchair. I would have lived there, but there aren't enough beds as it is.
3(1992) My parents moved to American Samoa when I was three or four years old. My dad was principal of a high school there. It was idyllic for a kid. I had a whole island for a backyard. I lived there until I was eight years old and we moved to Santa Barbara. That was a rough transition to make. I remember being the only kid in second grade who couldn't tie his shoelaces, because I had never worn shoes on the island.
4(1992, on his early love with Ally Sheedy. Source: Movieline) We met in history class. Neither of us were acting [in films] at the time. We were just kids in college. We lived together in a commune on Hollywood Boulevard. It was a huge old Victorian house called the Harris Hollywood House, and there were four or five rooms filled with ex-patriots from England, a handful of homeless people, lots of young, aspiring actors. It was cheap and the atmosphere was exciting. It was a wonderful, messy, fervent time filled with crazy people starting their careers and very excited about what might happen. (
5(1992, on his preparation for The Wild Life (1984)) I got a job at a bowling alley, moved into Oakwood Apartments in Burbank and tried to live that life. It was awful. I had to clean other people's shoes, deal with women's bowling day. The time really dragged. On one level, it was no fun at all but, on another level, it was real interesting. I had the opportunity to hang out in the apartment complex's clubhouse and down by the pool. The place was filled with recently divorced people who were licking their wounds. I did that for two months. And, ultimately, it did make it easier to do the character.
6(1992, on Haunted Summer (1988)) Actually, Laura Dern got me that role. She brought me the script and told me that I should meet the director. Ivan Passer took us to dinner and offered me the role. Some directors just want to hire you after getting a sense of who you are and others want you to read a million times. Either way is fine with me. Although it's a lot more fun to just go out to dinner...We lived this sort of bohemian existence during that film. We thought of those people as the rock and roll stars of their day, young, hedonistic people pursuing anarchic lifestyles, shocking society. We were all passionate about it. I already had a knowledge of the Romantic poets, but I didn't know much about (my character) Shelley. So I read every book about his life. I read this man's mail. I went to the places he went. I had a great time. I remember one night on Lake Como when there was an incredible thunderstorm. All the power went out in our hotel. I went out on the balcony and saw Laura and Philip Anglim on a balcony, and Alex Winter on the balcony next to them, watching the lightning. And I thought, this was what life should be like.
7(1992, on Memphis Belle (1990)) Michael Caton-Jones was a little twisted. He had us spend three weeks running five miles a day with packs on our back and sleeping with 20 other smelly, grumpy guys. I think he wanted to see spoiled Hollywood actors tortured and beaten down so he could come in and direct. After boot camp we were putty in his hands. He wore a general's cap on the set and occasionally walked around with a riding crop. He's a good director, but his sense of humor is obviously strange.
8To go from trying to steer a scene to trying to bring it to life from within is a big difference. Directing has only increased my admiration and respect for what it is that actors do. (On going from directing to acting on 'Grey's Anatomy'.)
9I find that there are two kinds of actors (or actresses) that you work with constantly: (1) The Respectful Actor. This person is kind and giving and talented and fun to work with and respectful of your relationship. (2) The Predatory Actor. This person is kind and giving and talented and fun to work with but feels that because they are famous they don't have to function within society's rules, i.e., if they are hungry, they eat; if they are attracted to their co-star, they act on it, married or not, no matter what destruction may ensue. These people obviously should be in therapy.
10There's a strange sense of accomplishment in making an independent film. Everything's against you; there's no time, and even less money- you bring a bottle of glue, chip in twenty bucks, and hope you all make it through the day. If you manage to finish it and it actually turns out to be pretty good, it's thrilling.
11I realize I'm a very lucky man. I love what I do, I love films, tv and theater, and the fact that I'm able to make a living at it staggers me.
12I'm interested in doing movies I wouldn't normally be interested in doing.
13It's hard not to get a big head in the film industry, there are people on a set paid to cater to your every need, from the minute you arrive until you go home. It's kind of strange, but not unpleasant.
1Was considered for the role of Detective Vic Mackey on The Shield (2002).
2Lost out on the role of Marty McFly in Back to the Future (1985), but later appeared in The Fly II (1989), as a character named Marty who becomes a fly.
3He has German, English, and Scottish ancestry.
4Currently appearing as "Daniel Graystone" in the Syfy Channel drama Caprica (2009). [January 2010]
5Appearing on Broadway with Richard Dreyfuss in Arthur Penn's production of Larry Gelbart's "Sly Fox". [March 2004]
6Has appeared with James Spader in four films: A Killer in the Family (1983), The New Kids (1985), 2 Days in the Valley (1996) and Keys to Tulsa (1997).
7According to a 1992 Movieline Interview, the casting agents for Mask (1985) had refused to let him in to read for the part. When he had finally finagled his way into an audition via a sympathetic receptionist, he arrived for his big chance before the casting people wearing a stocking over his face. And he got the part. Now he really put the technique to work. Reportedly he also insisted on being called Rocky, never Eric. But he went further than that. "I walked around town with the mask on. It was important to get people's reactions in grocery stores and post offices and see what they would say when they saw me strolling down the street. I just wanted to get an idea of how Rocky may have felt, which was horrible. People were generally cruel and mean. They would make snide comments. Kids threw things at me. People took pictures and asked, 'Hey, are you in the circus?'".
8Lived in American Samoa for a few years as a child.
9Spent three months in a wheelchair in preparation for his role in the film The Waterdance (1992).
10Was nominated for Broadway's 1989 Tony Award as Best Actor (Featured Role - Play) for a revival of Thornton Wilder's Great Performances: Our Town (1989).
11He was cast as Marty McFly in Back to the Future (1985) after Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale were unable to get Michael J. Fox, their first choice for the part due to scheduling conflicts. After only five weeks of filming, he was let go from the film because Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale felt he was "too intense" for the character. Michael J. Fox, who was then available, took over the part.
