Skylar Astin stars in GRAVES as “Isaiah Miller,” Richard Graves’ over-eager assistant who goes to work for his political hero at the very moment that the ex-President is tearing down his legacy.
Showcasing his incredible dramatic and comedic talent, native New Yorker Skylar Astin has starred in a wide range of film, television, and theater projects.
Starring alongside Brenton Thwaites, Astin recently wrapped the feature film ”Ghosts of War.” Eric Bress directed the film, which follows five American soldiers assigned to hold a French mansion against the Nazis in 1944.
Astin is probably best known for his performance in Universal’s franchise ”Pitch Perfect.” Starring alongside costars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Elizabeth Banks, Astin graced the silver screen in his scene-stealing role as Treblemaker crooner Jesse.
Astin’s other film credits include ”21 and Over” in which he starred with Miles Teller, directed by ”The Hangover” writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore; Ang Lee’s ”Taking Woodstock”; the independent Sundance favorite ”Hamlet 2”; the comedy ”Flock of Dudes” opposite Jamie Chung, Hilary Duff, and Bryan Greenberg; and in 2014, Astin provided the voice for Roy in Disney’s award-winning animated feature ”Wreck-It Ralph.”
Prior to portraying Isaiah Miller in “Graves,” Astin starred in TBS’s comedy series “Ground Floor” alongside John C. McGinley. His other television credits include guest appearances on shows such as Fox’s “House M.D.,” HBO’s “Girls,” and NBC’s “Love Bites.”
His breakout role came in 2006 when Astin starred as George in the Tony Award-winning play “Spring Awakening” opposite “Glee” actress Lea Michele. “Spring Awakening” earned eight Tony Awards.
Astin currently splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
