Jackie Earle Haley (born July 14, 1961) is an Academy Award-nominated American actor.



Haley has appeared in numerous films, including "Damnation Alley", John Schlesinger's "The Day of the Locust", and "Losin' It", as well as guest roles on TV. A well known child actor, he starred as Kelly Leak in the famous comedy "The Bad News Bears". He also starred in The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training and The Bad News Bears go to Japan.

He played "Moocher" in Peter Yates' acclaimed 1979 film "Breaking Away" and later in the short lived TV series of the same name. Throughout the 1970s, he often played a tough, angry, pimply, long-haired misfit. He has made guest appearances on such TV shows as "Marcus Welby, M.D.", "The Waltons", "The Love Boat", "Renegade", and "Get a Life".

Haley's acting career went dormant during most of the 1990s and early 2000s before turning to directing.cite news | last =Paskin | first =Willa | coauthors = | title ="It felt like this was supposed to happen" | work = | pages = | language = | publisher =Salon.com | date = | url =http://www.salon.com/ent/movies/feature/2007/02/21/jackie_earle_haley/index_np.html | accessdate =2007-07-25 ] He eventually turned to a career as a successful producer and director of television commercials. He returned to acting in 2006, first appearing in Steven Zaillian's "All the King's Men" alongside Sean Penn, before moving on to his greatest acting challenge to date – giving a critically acclaimed performance as Ronnie McGorvey, a recently paroled sex offender in Todd Field's "Little Children". He stated that his preparation for the role was greatly influenced by the relationship shared between his brother True, who battled a heroin addiction before he died of an overdose, and their mother.

Currently, Haley owns a production company, JEH Productions, in San Antonio, Texas. In 2008, he appeared in "Semi-Pro" and will star in "Winged Creatures". He also has been cast in Zack Snyder's adaptation of the Alan Moore graphic novel, "Watchmen" as the fan favorite antihero Rorschach, a masked detective working to find the identity of a superhero killer.
