Biography

Dan Fogler is perhaps best known for playing Jacob Kowalski in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) and the sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018). This five-picture franchise sees Dan playing opposite Eddie Redmayne and extends J.K. Rowling’s magical world of witches and wizards to a new generation.

Fogler has appeared in a variety of features, appearing in comedies School for Scoundrels (2006) with Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder, Balls of Fury (2007) with Christopher Walken and Maggie Q, and fan-favourite Fanboys (2009), co-starring alongside Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Jay Baruchel and Kristen Bell. He’s also starred opposite Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart in Love Happens (2009), Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock with Liev Shreiber, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Emile Hirsch, and part of the ensemble in Take Me Home Tonight (2011), alongside Topher Grace, Chris Pratt, and Anna Farris. On the animated feature front, Fogler was heard as part of the voice cast in Dreamworks’ Kung Fu Panda (2008), Fox’s Horton Hears a Who, and Disney’s, Mars Needs Moms (2011).

Fogler made his directorial film debut with Hysterical Psycho (2009) and his second feature as a director, Don Peyote (2014), put together an ensemble cast that included Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, and Jay Baruchel, which garnered him the Domani Vision Award for Best Director.

On television, Fogler starred opposite Ryan Fillippe and Juliette Lewis in the ABC drama Secrets and Lies, was a series lead in the ABC comedy sitcom Man Up!, and guest starred on NBC's critically-acclaimed series Hannibal and ABC’s hit series The Goldbergs.

Fogler got his start on Broadway, where his performance in The 25thAnnual Putnam County Spelling Bee earned him a Tony award in 2005.
