From the IMDB website:
Neil D'Monte (b. June 30) is an American artist, SAG-Aftra film actor and musician born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. A graduate of the USC School of Fine Arts, he began his career as a comic book and storyboard artist, which segued into a successful acting career. Neil made his feature film debut in 2003 with Vampires Anonymous, followed by the box office blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: Dean Man's Chest in 2006. He can be seen as "The Pianist" in the spaghetti western/samurai epic Bunraku alongside Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson. His theatrical training at Chicago's prestigious Goodman Theatre allowed him to develop his skill at portraying offbeat and eccentric characters, for which he is quickly gaining notoriety among his peers in the film industry. In addition to his work as an actor and a sought after artist, he is also touring/recording as a drummer with guitarist Peter DiStefano (Porno for Pyros/Lance Herbstrong/Satellite Party) and James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins/A Perfect Circle). Always up for a new challenge, D'Monte is also taking on co-writing and directing with his first proof of concept film, Bedbug and the preternatural feature film, Still Small Voice.

Neil's latest thriller TBK: The Toolbox Murders 2 showcases his range as a chameleon-like actor while his next artistic ventures, Den of Thieves, Blumhouse's Stephanie and Open Road's Midnight Sun are currently in theaters with a nationwide release. He is working on artwork for the upcoming films Burden (produced by Dallas Buyers Club's Robbie Brenner), Gold Circle's I Still See You, SpectreVision's Daniel Isn't Real, Sobini Films' Emperor and Awesomeness TV's The List.

The busy multi-hyphenate is also a humanitarian who donates his spare time helping terminally-ill children as a spokesperson with St. Baldrick's Children's Cancer Foundation and CHLA. He is also an animal rights activist who works with the organizations I Stand With My Pack (ISWMP) and Defending The Endangered, an anti-poaching movement started by actress/singer and fashion model Jon Marie Mack. D'Monte serves as an honorary board member of the non-profit Wisdom by Nature Academy.
