Young actor Skyler Gisondo rose from juvenile guest roles on television series to clever comic turns as awkward teens in "Night of the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" (2014) and "Vacation" (2015). Born July 22, 1996 in Palm Beach, Florida, Gisondo began his acting career at the age of 7 after making his screen debut in an episode of "Miss Match" (ABC, 2003). He began working steadily in guest roles on top-rated television series like "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009) and "Everybody Loves Raymond" (CBS, 1996-2005) while also making his entry into feature films as the voice of B-Dawg, a hip-hop-loving mutt in "Air Buddies" (2006), the sixth film in the "Air Bud" franchise. He would reprise the role five additional times between 2008 and 2012 while also continuing to work in other features, most notably Rob Zombie's remake of "Halloween" (2007) and "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" (2007). Between these assignments, Gisondo was also a series regular on "The Bill Engvall Show" (TBS, 2007-2009) as Engvall's intelligent and eccentric youngest son, and later as the younger version of faux psychic Shawn Spencer on "Psych" (USA Network, 2006-2014) from 2010 to 2012. His natural comic abilities drew the attention of feature casting agents, which led to humorous supporting roles in screen comedies like "The Three Stooges" (2012), for which he played the younger version of Moe Howard, and as Gwen Stacy's younger brother, Howard, in "The Amazing Spider-Man" (2012) and its 2014 sequel. He also made the leap to leading man in 2014 with "Hard Sell," a comedy-drama about a young man who becomes involved with a socialite (Katrina Bowden) to fleece his schoolmates for fast money, and replaced Jake Cherry as Nick Daley, Ben Stiller's screen son, in "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb." The following year, he played Ed Helms' anxious son in "Vacation," a reboot of the popular comedy series with Chevy Chase.
