comments: Shawn's been at it for a good three years now. And he's built quite an impressive resume along the way, working with lots of different people and turning in a solid body of work. He made his debut as Kevin Klein's supportive student in In and Out, and appeared in The Faculty alongside Elijah Wood and Josh Hartnett. What's next for Shawn? Well, look for him this Fall in the HBO feature "Witness Protection" opposite Forest Whitaker, Tom Sizemore and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Also for the Fall: Simpatico, the film version of the acclaimed Sam Sheppard play also starring Sharon Stone and Nick Nolte. He's also in Wayne Wang's Anywhere But Here, also slated for a September release. Shawn stars opposite Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman in this mother-daughter drama. And look for Shawn, also in September, with Alec Baldwin in Miramax's Outside Providence. Shawn plays a teen from the wrong side of town who is sent to an upscale New England Prep School in hope of a better life. Shawn recently finished filming Miramax's Down To You with Freddie Prinze Jr., Julia Stiles and Selma Blair.

Shawn's new tricks

Shawn makes a point of picking up a new "trick" on the set of each movie he films:

    • In and Out: he solved Rubik's cube
    • Simpatico: he mastered the yo-yo
    • Outside Providence: he learned how to juggle; "I'm up to four balls now. I'm one of those people where if I pick something up, I can't put it down."


Quote of the Month:

    • "[Shawn's] very honest in front of the camera. He grooves into something." --co-star Alec Baldwin on Shawn
    • "I just want to ride the wave, and make interesting choices." (Shawn, on what's next?)
