Young Lipnicki excellently performed the cute role alongside actors, Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding, and Renée Zellweger. After landing the role of George Little in the “Stuart Little” movie, Lipnicki gradually won the hearts of movie lovers.

The child actor from California bagged two awards for his role in his first two movies as “Best Performer in a Featured Film- Age Ten or Under” and “Best Young Actor.” In subsequent times, Lipnicki took on roles in movies including “The Little Vampire,” and the sequel to “Stuart Little.”

Jonathan, however, went on a hiatus from Hollywood as he went on to take part in TV dramas including “When Zachary Beaver Comes to Town,” “Dawson’s Creek,” “Monk” and “Touched by an Angel” among others.

Lipnicki has however not lost contact with big acts he worked with as a child. He once mentioned that during his transition to adulthood, he got quality advice from Hollywood’s mainstream actor, Tom Cruise. Lipnicki said:

“I went over to his house because I actually — I called his office at United Artists and asked for advice and, you know, he got back to me, and I went over, “A big part of his success he attributes to being on time and being polite to people and knowing people’s names, and it was incredible to sit down with one of your favorite actors and have an hour-long conversation about acting.”

Referring to Cruise as the “ultimate professional,” Jonathan included that he wasn’t the first kid that the older actor showed kindness as he helped calm the initial child actor chosen for the “Ray Boyd” character.

Jonathan Lipnicki’s childhood can be said to have garnered more fame for the young actor. While he was way younger, the “Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation” dubbed him “Hero of the year” in accordance to the emotional speech the young chap delivered which resulted in a large turn-out of funds for charity.

Lipnicki is back to Hollywood as he stars in the latest movie project, “Circus Kane.” A horror movie that takes semblance with the storyline in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

Circus Kane just like Willy Wonka invites seven individuals to the return of Circus Kane’s Horror Show. Jonathan Lipnicki plays a major role as Scott, one of the seven horror insiders.
