Joseph Mazzello is a son of Virginia and Joseph Mazzello, Jr., who was an owner of a performing arts school. Joseph grew up in Hyde Park, New York with his older sister Mary and a younger brother, John. Mazzello went to the Catholic school Our Lady of Lourdes, and is an alumnus of the University of Southern California, thanks to Steven Spielberg’s recommendation letter to the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Joseph now funds the college with the salary he earned in “The Lost World: Jurassic Park”.

He started his career in the TV movie “Unspeakable Acts” in 1990, and then had a minor role in “Presumed Innocent” (1990) starring Harrison Ford and Raul Julia. In the early ‘90s, Mazzello appeared in Richard Donner’s “Radio Flyer” (1992) alongside Lorraine Bracco, John Heard, and Adam Baldwin, and later he played in Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning sci-fi adventure “Jurassic Park” (1993) with Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum; the movie grossed over $1billion worldwide and was the highest-grossing film ever at the time. Although he had a smaller part, the movie helped Mazzello to increase his net worth significantly.

Also in 1993, Joseph had a role in Richard Attenborough’s Oscar-nominated biography “Shadowlands” starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. A year later, Mazzello played alongside Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon in the Golden Globe Award-nominated “The River Wild”, then in the mid-90s, he starred in such movies as “A Father for Charlie” (1995) with Louis Gossett Jr., “The Cure” (1995) with Brad Renfro, and “Three Wishes” (1995) with Patrick Swayze and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. He ended the decade with “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” (1997) starring Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore and Pete Postlethwaite, and “Simon Birch” (1998) with Ian Michael Smith, Ashley Judd, and Oliver Platt, which certainly increased his net worth by a large margin.

Mazzello’s career took a step down in the 2000s, as he failed to secure notable roles, but still appeared in such films as “Wooly Boys” (2001) with Peter Fonda, Kris Kristofferson, and Keith Carradine, and in “Raising Helen” (2004) starring Kate Hudson, John Corbett, and Joan Cusack. In 2010, Joseph played in Golden Globe Award-nominated TV mini-series “The Pacific”, and then in David Fincher’s Oscar-winning movie “The Social Network” (2010) with Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Justin Timberlake. Most recently, Mazzello had parts in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” (2013) alongside Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, and Adrianne Palicki, and in the comedy “Undrafted” (2016), for which he wrote the screenplay and was the director.

Regarding his personal life, Joseph Mazzello’s most intimate details such as marital status and number of children are unknown as he successfully manages to keep them out of the public eye, but rumours suggest that he is gay.
