Rory Cochrane

Rory Cochrane was born in New York and spent much of his childhood in England. He eventually returned to New York City to study at the La Guardia High School of Performing Arts.

Cochrane's first performance was in the critically well-received film Fathers and Sons, in which he played Jeff Goldblum's son. He followed this up with a stand-out performance in Richard Linklater's film classic Dazed and Confused as ‘Slater,' the young comedic stoner. Cochrane gave a tour-de-force performance as a crazed tattooed killer in Love and a .45 with Renee Zellweger and followed that with a co-starring role in the cult classic Empire Records opposite Liv Tyler.

Cochrane starred in the low budget features, The Low Life and Dogtown for director George Hickenlooper. He also co-starred in Sunset Strip, which Art Linson produced for Fox 2000, as well as essayed a memorable role in Flawless, which Joel Schumacher directed with Robert De Niro and Phillip Seymour Hoffman for MGM. Other recent film credits include the ensemble Hart's War opposite Colin Farrell and Bruce Willis, and The Prime Gig opposite Vince Vaughn and Ed Harris.

Cochrane was most recently seen in the top-rated CBS show CSI: Miami, playing ‘Tim Speedle' opposite David Caruso, and plays 'Brad' in the upcoming Lionsgate feature, Right At Your Door.
