Neil D'Monte (b. June 30) is an American artist, SAG/AFTRA film actor and musician born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. A graduate of the USC School of Fine Arts, he began his career as a comic book and storyboard artist, which segued into a successful acting career. Neil made his feature film debut in 2003 with Vampires Anonymous, followed by the box office blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: Dean Man's Chest in 2006. Currently, he can be seen as “The Pianist” in the spaghetti western/samurai epic Bunraku alongside Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson. His theatrical training at Chicago’s prestigious Goodman Theatre allowed him to develop his skill at portraying offbeat and eccentric characters, for which he is quickly gaining notoriety among his peers in the film industry. In addition to his work as an actor and a sought after artist, he is also touring/recording as a drummer with guitarist Peter DiStefano (Porno for Pyros/Lance Herbstrong/Satellite Party) and is now taking on co-writing and directing as his next set of challenges. Neil's feature film directing debut, the supernatural film-noir Murder in Nightvale, is scheduled to start pre-production in Jan of 2015.
Neil's latest thriller Coffin Baby (aka TBK: The Toolbox Murders 2) showcases his range as a chameleonic actor while his next artistic venture, the Elijah Wood produced horror-comedy Cooties, has been acquired by Lionsgate and scheduled for a nationwide theatrical release this October. He is currently working on artwork for the upcoming blockbusters Jurassic World and Batman vs. Superman.
Neil is represented by The Stevens Group and managed by Michael D. John.
