Personal Quotes -

(On working on the set of Pitch Black (2000)) "Learning to use all of those weapons and looking like a professional mercenary. It's always fun to play someone like an action hero that you always wanted to play as a child. I think every young boy loves that as a kid. An additional positive experience I had was visiting Australia and exposing myself to that part of the world".

"I'm excited about having an hour and a half of me. It's been a long road, and I've definitely worked my ass off to get where I am." - On his first leading role in Paparazzi (2004).

Family background -

Hauser was born in Santa Barbara, California, the son of Cass Warner, who founded the film production company Warner Sisters,[1] and actor Wings Hauser.[2][3] His paternal grandfather was Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dwight Hauser. Cole Hauser's maternal great-grandfather was famous film mogul Harry Warner, a founding partner of Warner Bros., and his maternal grandfather was Milton Sperling, a Hollywood screenwriter and independent film producer. His maternal grandmother, Betty Mae Warner, a painter, sculptor, political activist and gallery owner, is now married to Stanley Sheinbaum, a noted political activist, economist, philanthropist, and a former Los Angeles Police Department commissioner. Cole Hauser is of Irish descent on his father's side and Jewish on his mother's.[4][5][6]

Early life -

Cole's parents divorced in 1977 when he was two years old.[7] According to him, at roughly fifteen, he first met his father after the relocation-induced years of separation. His father took him in for a year and taught him about auditioning.[8] Prior to that, his restless but easy-going Mom had moved Cole and his half brother and sisters from Santa Barbara to Oregon to Florida and then back to Santa Barbara within a 12-year-span. At the time, young Cole delved heavily and enthusiastically into sports, but he half-heartedly pursued school. A good friend tried to lure Cole into school acting classes since his interest in studying was on the wane.[9] Just for the fun of it, the two boys applied for a renowned talent summer camp in New England. They were admitted to the short-listed circle of hopeful, elitist talents. A very clueless, insouciant and stunned Cole got the leading role of the stage play named Dark of the Moon, which earned him standing ovations for his performance. Bug-bitten, he turned all energy to this wondrous craft. His interest in school faded more. He was about 16 years old when he faced his liberal but wary parents with a strong determination to leave behind high school to try to break into acting.[10] His parents gave him 6 months to make it.

Career -

After endless, unsuccessful auditions he finally got his break and was invited to fill out the first credited role for the movie School Ties (1992) which starred many young and up-and-coming actors such as Ben Affleck. A role in Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused came along subsequently. On the respective sets, he met plenty of fresh-faced actors and actresses, largely unknown to the public at the time. Hauser would later re-team with Affleck when they appeared together in Good Will Hunting (1997).

In 2003, he played a soldier in Tears of the Sun alongside Bruce Willis and a appeared as a mob boss in 2 Fast 2 Furious. He has since had several leading roles in Hollywood films, including Mel Gibson's Paparazzi and The Cave.

In 2007 he starred with Anthony Anderson in the FOX K-Ville. The show was canceled after ten episodes. That same year, Hauser starred in The Stone Angel adapted from a novel by Margaret Laurence. The film played in various festival circles and had a limited release in Canadian theaters in May 2008. During that same year, Cole filmed other indie productions such as Like Dandelion Dust from a novel by Karen Kingsbury, Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys and the CBS television pilot The Tower.

Personal life -

Hauser's wife is former actress and photographer Cynthia Daniel,[11][12] who played Elizabeth Wakefield in the TV series adaptation of Francine Pascal's hit novel series, Sweet Valley High. Hauser and Daniel have a son named Ryland, born in September 2004. They are expecting their second child in 2008.[13]

Cole founded Project American Spirit,[14] an organization, which strives for giving strong moral, logistical and financial support to young disabled veterans.
