Osment has been one of Hollywood's most versatile performers over the last 25 years. Ranging from dark, dramatic roles to off-the-wall comedic performances across film, television and the stage, Osment has proven time and again why he is one of show business' treasures.

This year, Osment stars with Josh Hutcherson in Season 2 of the Hulu science fiction comedy Future Man, directed and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Osment plays Dr. Stu Camillo, a former classmate of Hutcherson's who survives into the 22nd century as a hologram and attempts to resettle human civilization on the planet Mars. Later this year, he will also be in Seth Rogen's The Boys for Amazon which centers on a group of vigilantes who set out to take down corrupt superheroes who abuse their superpowers.

Osment will soon appear on Netflix in the true crime thriller and 2019 Sundance Film Festival Selection Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile starring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, and featuring Lily Collins, Kaya Scodelario, Jim Parsons and John Malkovich. Osment plays a coworker of Collins' character who seeks her affections as her husband's legal woes pile up. He was also featured in Bridey Elliot's film Clara's Ghost at Sundance in 2018.

Osment's recent television appearances have included Silicon Valley, for which he received rave reviews as VR entrepreneur Keenan Feldspar, and a special episode of The X-Files in a chilling dual role. Earlier, he appeared in two seasons of the epic IFC comedy miniseries The Spoils Of Babylon alongside Will Ferrell, Kristin Wiig, Tobey Maguire and Michael K. Williams.
