Leonard broke into the business as an actor in “The Blair Witch project.” Other notable acting roles include “Humday,” Vera Farmiga’s “Higher Ground” and last year’s “If I Stay” with Chloe Grace Moretz. He’s also had featured roles on the TV series “Togetherness” from the Duplass brothers and A&E’s “Bates Motel.”

Leonard co-directed “Beautiful Losers” in 2008 and directed and starred in “The Lie,” which debuted at Sundance in 2011.

He’s in development on “Liberty” for Epix, and is currently writing the pilot with Eric Escobar. Leonard and Escobar will executive produce alongside Cary Fukunaga (“True Detective”), with Fukunaga directing the first two episodes.
