Austin Taylor O'Brien (born May 11, 1981) is an American actor and photographer. He may be best known for playing the co-lead Danny Madigan in the Arnold Schwarzenegger-movie Last Action Hero, followed by his turn into romance as Nick Zsigmond in My Girl 2, a part in both The Lawnmower Man and its sequel, and as Josh Greene in the CBS drama Promised Land. He originally gained fame from a Circuit City commercial as a kid who, after finding out he'd saved money, says, "Cool" to the store's employee.
