Francisco 'Frankie' Muniz landed his breakout role in 2000 at age 14 as the star of 'Malcolm in the Middle'. Throughout the show's run, Muniz appeared in several films, including 'Agent Cody Banks' in 2003 and its 2004 sequel. After the sitcom ended in 2006, he starred in the movie 'Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story' in 2007 and smaller films, moved to Arizona and became a drummer for the band Kingsfoil.
Muniz largely retired from acting after 'Malcolm in the Middle' ended and worked as a professional race car driver for a while. In September 2010, he said on his Twitter page, after a user called his acting skills 'awful': Yeah, but being retired with $40,000,000.00 at 19 has not been awful.
