Angarano achieved great attention in 2008 with the film “The Forbidden Kingdom”, a martial arts film starring alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li in the lead role of Jason Tripitikas.

Was trampled by a horse on the set of The Forbidden Kingdom (2008). Luckily for him, he didn't have any injuries. Michael admitted that he was really disappointed that this accident was not added to the gag reel.
Nobody could pronounce my last name, so my Spanish teacher gave me the name Angie, and everyone on the soccer team would all me Ango, which I hate. Call me Angie, but don't call me Ango. That's just bad.
People don't really care that I'm an actor, which is great. I love that. When you go to an all boys Catholic high school in the Valley nobody really watches TV or sees too many movies, so nobody really knew who I am, which is great.
I really love sports--basketball, football, soccer. And just hanging out with my friends. My uncle told me, 'Don't you go getting all Lindsay Lohan on me.' If there's anyone who would rather stay at home and watch a movie than going to a party, it's me.
I just graduated from high school three weeks ago. It was so hard to keep up with everyone because of work. I've enrolled at California State University-Northridge, but my goal is to go to USC film school.
