Born June 27, 1975, in Santa Monica, Calif., Tobey Maguire moved frequently as a boy along the West Coast with his mother, began acting at age 12 and quickly landed work in commercials. He soon appeared in the short-lived TV series "Great Scott" (1992) and small film roles that included This Boy's Life (1993). His breakthrough came in 1997 in director Ang Lee's The Ice Storm.

Maguire's distinction as one of his generation's best actors was solidified with leading parts in Pleasantville (1998), The Cider House Rules (1999) and Wonder Boys (2000). But it was his performances in Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man 2 (2004) that catapulted him to A-list status.

In 2003, Maguire took a break from playing a superhero to portray jockey Red Pollard in Seabiscuit (opposite Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper). The talented actor racked up a 2009 Golden Globe nod as Best Actor for his role in Brothers.
