Haley Joel Osment (born April 10, 1988) is an Academy Award-nominated American actor. After a series of roles in television and film during the early 1990s, Osment came to fame with his starring role in the 1999 thriller, The Sixth Sense. He subsequently had leading roles in several high-profile Hollywood films, including Pay It Forward and A.I., with his most recent being 2003's Secondhand Lions.



Osment was born in Los Angeles, California to Michael Eugene Osment and Theresa Seifert; he has a sister, Emily Osment, who is also an actress. Osment's family resides in Los Angeles. He was a student at Flintridge Preparatory School in La Canada, California and now attends New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

Osment began acting at the age of four, when he tried out for a Pizza Hut commercial in a shopping mall. The commercial launched his career, and he landed his first television role later that year. As a younger child he played Forrest Gump's son, also named Forrest Gump, in the 1994 film of the same name. He had roles in numerous TV series, including Walker, Texas Ranger (as a child dying from AIDS), Thunder Alley, The Jeff Foxworthy Show, The Pretender, and most notably Murphy Brown as Murphy's out-of-wedlock child, which then-Vice President Dan Quayle cited as a "poverty of values" (May 19, 1992). He also played a dying child in the emotional episode "Angels and Blimps" of the late-1990s show Ally McBeal.

Osment starred in Bogus alongside Whoopi Goldberg and G
