comments: For someone who hasn't been around all that long, Ethan already has collected quite an impressive resume. But it was in 1995's excellent Empire Records that everyone finally took notice of Mr. Embry. Ethan followed up his smash performance in that vehicle with parts in White Squall (where he did all his own stunts) and Tom Hank's That Thing You Do! Last year, Ethan was in the otherwise forgettable Vegas Vacation. Next up, catch him in Can't Hardly Wait. And, since the boy's been busy, look for him in Dancer, Texas Pop. 81, and Disturbing Behavior, both out on video. Look for him next this Fall in the series "Freaky Links", a sci-fi thriller about a young web designer who explores the paranormal on the internet, including the resurfacing of his supposedly dead twin brother. The series was created by Blair Witch producer, Gregg Hale. Ethan has 5 dogs and 8 cats. He loves collecting unusual cameras and darkroom equipment. In his spare time he also likes to surf.
