Career

Linz made his acting debut in 1995 on an episode of the television series Cybill. He subsequently appeared in several television productions, played Phillip Chancellor IV on the soap opera The Young and the Restless in 1995 for a short period of time, and was cast as the son of Michelle Pfeiffer's character in the 1996 film, One Fine Day. In 1997, Linz replaced Macaulay Culkin as the lead actor in Home Alone 3, and voiced a young Tarzan in the 1999 animated film version.

Linz had several starring roles in 2000s films aimed at younger audiences, including the 2001 comedy Max Keeble's Big Move, in which he played the title role, 2002's Race to Space, which received a minor theatrical release, and 2003's Hanukkah-themed made-for-television Disney Channel film Full-Court Miracle, in which he played the lead player in a Jewish school's basketball team. He was also, briefly, the voice of Arnold in the popular Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold! for the last two episodes, entitled "April Fools' Day" and "The Journal".

Linz appeared in the comedy The Amateurs, starring Jeff Bridges. The film was made in 2005. His most recent credit is in the 2007 drama Choose Connor, starring Steven Weber. He is often confused with former child actor Justin Cooper.

If you're putting on a fake personality, there's no way you're going to be able to keep up both that personality and also play the role you're supposed to play. You have to be comfortable with yourself.
