Showest to fete Osment

Thesp's credits include 'Pay It Forward,' upcoming 'A.I.'

Haley Joel Osment, a largely unknown child actor before bowing to critical and public acclaim in 1999’s “The Sixth Sense,” has been named Showest 2001’s supporting actor of the year.

Osment’s most recent film outing was fall’s Mimi Leder-helmed “Pay It Forward,” from Warner Bros. The 12-year-old will next be seen in Warner’s upcoming “A.I.,” directed by Steven Spielberg.

Prior to Disney’s M. Night Shyamalan-helmed “Sixth Sense,” his acting credits were mostly in TV, including a 1988 stint on CBS’ “Murphy Brown.”

“Haley Joel is a tremendously talented actor,” said Robert Sunshine, chairman of ShoWest organizer Sunshine Group Worldwide. “We are honored to pay tribute to him for the incredible body of work he has amassed in such a short time as well as for his upcoming role in the much-anticipated ‘A.I.’ ”

Osment will be honored at a March 8 awards gala in Las Vegas. Ving Rhames (“Mission: Impossible II”) was honored as supporting actor of the year last year.
