Jonah Meyerson (born September 20, 1991) is an American actor, arguably best known for his appearances as Yoda on the short-lived NBC drama Book of Daniel. He has worked with actors such as Gene Hackman, Pierce Brosnan, Robin Williams, Ben Stiller, Dermot Mulroney, Alison Pill, and Aidan Quinn. He was born in New York City, and it is where he currently lives.
Meyerson made his acting debut in Wes Anderson's 2001 award-winning film The Royal Tenenbaums. He played Uzi, the red-suited older son of Chas, played by Ben Stiller, and the grandson of characters played by Gene Hackman and Angelica Houston. Meyerson was nominated for a Young Artists' award for his work on that film. He also starred in Griffin and Phoenix, a new movie shown on the Lifetime channel and released on DVD. His work on that film earned him a Young Artist Award nomination, his second. In 2005, he was in the movies Little Manhattan and The Matador, and in 2004, David Duchovny's House of D. Playing a computer genius who helps Alison Pill's character in Book of Daniel, Jonah was set to appear in eight episodes, but was only in one as a major guest star before the series was cancelled.
