Tobias Maguire Early Career
Tobias Maguire's journey in acting began way back in 1989 when he was just 14 years old. During the following years, his youthful appearance led him to take on roles of much younger characters. Maguire appeared in a range of television commercials and shows like Walker, Texas Ranger, Roseanne, and the short-lived FOX TV series called Great Scott!
In these early days, Maguire struck up a friendship with another young actor named Leonardo DiCaprio. They formed a professional pact to support each other in finding work, which turned out to be a smart move. This partnership started with Tobias getting a guest role on the TV series Parenthood in 1990, where DiCaprio had a lead part. They had a similar dynamic in the 1993 movie This Boy's Life.
As the mid-90s rolled in, Tobias' star began to rise even higher. He secured a significant role in the 1997 film The Ice Storm, directed by Ang Lee. This opened doors to other leading roles in movies like Pleasantville, The Cider House Rules, and Wonder Boys.
Maguire also appeared in a supporting role in the 1998 movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, directed by Terry Gilliam. A few years down the line, he landed the role that would become his hallmark: Peter Parker, the teenage identity of the superhero Spider-Man. Other notable films he took part in during this era include Seabiscuit (where he also worked as a producer) and The Good German.

In 2015, he portrayed chess prodigy Bobby Fischer in Pawn Sacrifice, and in 2017, he lent his voice to a character in the animated film Boss Baby.
