Early life

Lipnicki was born in Westlake Village, California, son of Joseph and Rhonda (née Rosen) Lipnicki.[1] He has an older sister, Alexis.[2]

Lipnicki was educated at Agoura High School, a public secondary school in the city of Agoura Hills in Los Angeles County in California.[3]


Lipnicki made his film debut in 1996's Jerry Maguire as the son of Renée Zellweger's character. He subsequently appeared on The Single Guy, The Jeff Foxworthy Show as well as episodes of Dawson's Creek and the 1997 sitcom Meego. In 1999, he starred in the film Stuart Little, playing a boy whose family adopts a talking mouse, a role he reprised in the film's 2002 sequel. Lipnicki also played the lead role in the 2000 film The Little Vampire and starred opposite Bow Wow in the 2002 theatrical film Like Mike, which was released two weeks before Stuart Little 2; both of the films did relatively well in theaters, and Lipnicki has become known among pre-teen audiences, although he has not appeared in a widely released film since, focusing mostly on independent films. Lipnicki has also appeared in the season preview of Jamie Kennedy's Blowin' Up and When Zachary Beaver Came to Town. He appeared on the comedy Motherlover on the YOMYOMF Network.

Lipnicki currently trains in Mixed martial arts styles, but when asked whether he planned to ever fight professionally, he replied, "I’ve been pretty busy filming and I would need to put off a certain amount of time to really train for a fight and be in amazing cardio shape and really work on my striking more. I’m not saying no and I’m not saying yes."[4]
