Jerry Maguire may have earned Tom Cruise one of his three Academy Award nominations, but the scene-stealing performance of a very young Jonathan Lipnicki is still a fan favorite from the Cameron Crowe movie. The previously pint-sized performer took voice roles in both Stuart Little movies before going on hiatus from acting, but has returned to the scene with a splash appearing on Access Hollywood!
Lipnicki steps back into the acting game with a role in the upcoming feature film, For The Love Of Money, aside Hollywood legends James Caan and Jeffrey Tambor along with veteran Edward Furlong. The film is helmed by Ellie Kanner and features French model/actress Delphine Chanéac in the female lead. The team at TomCruise.com is of course delighted for Jonathan’s return to the big screen and look forward to seeing the new project.
Following his ride to stardom in Jerry Maguire, Lipnicki took a break to finish school and live life out of the Hollywood spotlight. In the meanwhile, the young actor also took to intense physical training and found a passion for mixed martial arts, as evidenced through news he shares on his Twitter feed.
But for those that will always remember him as the bespectacled sprite from Jerry Maguire, including some of the more dedicated fans of the romantic comedy, the HD trailer below should bring back happy memories:
