Atticus Shaffer is an American child actor best known for his role as Matty Newton in the 2009 supernatural horror-thriller film The Unborn, and as Brick Heck in the television sitcom The Middle.

Shaffer lives in Acton, California, with his mother, Debbie, and father, Ron, as well as a small menagerie of pets that includes two dogs and four cats (all rescues), birds, fish and a rabbit named Bun Bun.

Atticus was discovered by his manager in 2006 and soon landed a guest starring role in the series The Class. That role led him to the role of Brick in the original ABC pilot, The Middle.

Several episodics followed, such as My Name is Earl, Days of Our Lives, Carpoolers, Out of Jimmy's Head and Human Giant.

Well known for the bus stop scene he shared with Will Smith in Hancock, Atticus' other roles in feature films include The Unborn, An American Carol, Leaving Barstow and Opposite Day.

Among Atticus' many talents is his unique approach to comedy, which he has displayed in numerous commercials, most notably with AIG. He has also provided many voiceovers in feature films, including Year One, Subject: I Love You and Ice Age III.

Atticus is home schooled and excels in his education. He loves being a Boy Scout and especially enjoys participating in camping trips and earning Merit badges.

An avid Yu-Gi-Oh player, he enjoys attending tournaments with his dad. He is also a huge fan of everything Star Wars and Legos.

In addition to his love for acting, Atticus has a true passion for comedy.
