"I was looking for an old soul in a young body. It had to be a person who is very connected emotionally to their own heart and pain, with the ability to demonstrate that on film. Nick has those qualities. He came in to read for the part and just nailed it. He's an amazing actor." --director Jeremiah Chechik in press kit for "Tall Tales"
From Susan Wloszczyna's August 25, 1993 USA Today review of "The Man Without a Face": "... Newcomer Nick Stahl, whose handle-like ears make him look like a sugar bowl with Bambi eyes ..."
On how he came to be cast in "Bully", Stahl told The Advocate (July 3, 2001): "I expressed my interest [in playing the role], and then I guess I read for it after that, like, maybe a week later. I just say "hat's off" to [Clark] for giving me the opportunity, because I think it took a lot of imagination on his part. It was pretty bold of him not to go the stereotypical route. I guess he recognized that it was more psychological bullying. That gave me some security going into the movie that I would have some freedom to do what I wanted to do."
