Anthony Michael Hall is an American actor, director, producer, screenwriter, singer, dancer. He is best known for his portrayal of Richie Tozier in the film adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel IT, an adaptation which became of 2017’s highest-grossing horror films.


Hall was born on Easter Sunday, April 14, 1968, in West Roxbury, a neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts.

The following year, Hall landed the role of Rusty Griswold, Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo's son, in National Lampoon's Vacation, catching the attention of the film's screenwriter John Hughes, who was about to make the jump to directing. "For [Hall] to upstage Chevy, I thought, was a remarkable accomplishment for a 13-year-old kid," said Hughes.

Hall began his acting career at age eight and continued throughout high school. "I did not go to college," he has said, "but I'm an avid reader in the ongoing process of educating myself." (Source:

Hall's breakout role came in 1984, when he was cast as Farmer Ted, the scrawny, braces-wearing geek who pursued Molly Ringwald's character in John Hughes' directing debut Sixteen Candles. Hall tried to avoid the clichés of geekiness. "I didn't play him with 100 pens sticking out of his pocket," he said. "I just went in there and played it like a real kid. The geek is just a typical freshman." (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
