  • Ryan Malgarini grew up in Las Vegas under the guardianship of his grandparents and expressed an interest in a professional acting career from the age of five, when he witnessed his grandmother's involvement in a nationally broadcast television spot. After appearing opposite her (and the late Lou Rawls) in a commercial, and then essaying similar assignments on television spots for McDonald's and Washington Mutual Savings Bank, Malgarini secured Los Angeles-area representation as a child actor. He took one of his earliest onscreen bows with a small role opposite Kevin Spacey and Lena Olin in the grim psychological drama The United States of Leland (2002), then landed turns in the family-oriented outings Freaky Friday (2003) (as the son of Jamie Lee Curtis and the brother of Lindsay Lohan) and How to Eat Fried Worms (2006). In 2008, he signed on to play Tom Barns, the socially backward 14-year-old son of Jay Mohr and Paula Marshall, on the sitcom Gary Unmarried.

QUOTES FROM Ryan Malgarini CHARACTERS

Billy Forrester
You guys are stupid! You can say "Wormboy" all you want! I don't care! Worms don't even taste hardly! I had a whole bowl of breakfast with brown sugar and cold milk.

Joe Guire
That's a lie.
Billy Forrester
Sometimes I boil them. Sometimes I do them on the barbecue, my favorite way, fried like french fries. The greasier and the slimier, the better.
Joe Guire
Wormboy, you couldn't even eat one worm. Right when it'd touch your tongue, you'd puke.
Billy Forrester
You wanna bet?
Joe Guire
The smell would make you puke. You couldn't even eat a quarter of a worm.
Billy Forrester
I can eat this many worms, Joe: 10 easy! And you would be the one who'd puke just watching me.
Joe Guire
Let's bet.
Billy Forrester
That I would eat 10 worms?
Joe Guire
Yeah. And when you throw up, you lose.
Billy Forrester
What if I don't lose?
Joe Guire
What's the bet, you mean?
Plug
I-- I know! The loser has to come to school with worms in his pants!
Benjy
Yeah! And he has to walk down the hall, past everybody!
Joe Guire
Alright. It's gonna be you, Wormboy.
Anna Coleman
Role-playing! Her idea. New therapeutic technique. Switching points of view.
Grandpa
If I switch with Harry, do I have to wear a thong?
Harry Coleman
Earthquake. Save me. Earthquake.
