Nat Wolff: Acting his way into M.I.T.?
NEW YORK – While he was acting in “Admission,” the new comedy drama about the rigors and fickleness of the college admissions process, 18-year-old Nat Wolff was also resume-deep in his own, real-life efforts to get into his chosen university.
Wolff, the son of actress Polly Draper (“thirtysomething”) and jazz musician Michael Wolff and older brother of Alex Wolff, with whom he starred for three seasons on Nickleodeon’s music-based “The Naked Brothers Band,” has been working to establish a solo film acting career since the TV show ended in 2009.
After supporting roles in “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” and “New Year’s Eve,” and putting three more in the can for future release (“The Last Keepers,” “Behaving Badly,” opposite Selena Gomez, and “Palo Alto”), Wolff landed a plum part in “Admission,” opposite Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, as a quirky high school math and science whiz vying for admission to Princeton University.
His character is Jeremiah, a likable, obtuse, breezily intellectual oddball whose abstract patter sent Wolff to the reference books to put him at ease with various abstract science and math theories. All of which nearly got him serious admission consideration at that Ivy League brainiac factory, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
