Biography

Early life

Wolff was born in Los Angeles, California to actress Polly Draper (of TV's Thirtysomething) and jazz pianist Michael Wolff. He is the older brother of actor/musician and composer Alex. The Wolff family is part Jewish and Christian. His mother is a Quaker and his father is Jewish. He says that in his spare time he likes to play basketball, write music, and play with the family's dog, E.T.

When Wolff was very young, he put signs on his bedroom door stating: "I want to be a child actor!" At first, his mother refused because she didn't want her children exposed to superstardom because they were very young. As a result, Draper decided to please Nat by filming his own sitcom called, Don't Eat Off My Plate.

The Naked Brothers Band

Wolff is the lead singer-songwriter and keyboardist for The Naked Brothers Band, which he created with his brother Alex whom is the drummer. Nat gained notice in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks when he held his birthday party at his apartment; it was for the children of New York City Fire Department's Squad 18, which is where he performed his own composition entitled "Firefighters". He has performed Off Broadway in Getting Into Heaven with Cooper Pillot, which his mother wrote; he also starred in The Heart of Baghdad.

Wolff became best known for his starring role in the Nickelodeon television series The Naked Brothers Band, which was created by his mother. The series is a parody of he and his brothers lives. The show was adapted by The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie, which was picked up as a pilot for the cable television channel. The film was in the style of a mock documentary and was also written and directed by his mother. In a New York Times article, Nat explains why he enjoyed working on the television show: "I always loved it. I love the Beatles—I know every Beatles song—I wanted to be like them. It's all based on reality; it's not like work. It's things we might say or do or want to say or do. I like the feeling of creating something that wasn't there. If we have another season, I'm totally getting ideas."
