Yahoo Celebrity

Joseph Mazzello was just 9 years old when he made his big blockbuster debut as Tim Murphy in the 1993 film classic "Jurassic Park." But now, the 29-year-old actor is all grown up and ready to fight cobras instead of dinosaurs!

The actor is the newest recruit to the cobra fighting team in the action-packed film "G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” which is in theaters now. The flick also stars Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, so ladies -- get ready for a whole lot of beefy manliness steaming up the big screen!

Aside from his latest flick, the child star turned adult actor already has some significant roles under his belt in both TV and film. He's starred in the HBO mini-series "The Pacific," playing a real life war hero, as well as on F/X's "Justified." Mazzello was also in the 2010 Oscar winning movie "The Social Network" -- as Mark Zuckerberg's roommate and Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz. No question he's one talented actor, and we can't wait to see what's next!
