Ian James McNeely
18 February 2006 | by mrfunone2000See all my reviews

The film was true to Claxton and his work. The young boy who played Claxton as a child, Ian McNeely was remarkable. I found his performance endearing with a "devil may care" quality. I have seen several other film performances by Ian McNeely and it has been great to watch him "grow-up" on the screen. I'll be looking for great things from this actor.

Upon further research I have found Ian McNeely to be performing on stage and in college.
