Decided not to go to college in order to pursue his acting career.
Filmed his part in Wonderland (2003) in seven days.
His parents organized campaigns against nuclear power plants and, for his safety, moved 30 times before he was 13 years old.
Graduated from Gig Harbor High School in Gig Harbor, Washington in 1989.
Brother of Devin Maurer
Born in Arkansas in 1971 and christened Joshua Lucas Easy Dent Maurer. His parents lived on an Indian reservation and they name the child based on things that happen. He came out so easy that the doctor hit his head on the bedpost and dented his head.
Parents were hippie activists, who moved more than 30 times before he was 13.
Was injured severely enough to be hospitalized twice during the filming of Poseidon. First, co-star Kurt Russell accidentally hit him with a flashlight in the right eye during an underwater swimming sequence and the resulting cut required 16 stitches and several days off. The second and more serious injury occurred on the next to last day of filming when Josh fell 15-20 feet and tore ligaments and muscles in his left thumb, an injury which required a 5-hour surgery to reattach the muscle and 6-8 weeks in a cast. He is still undergoing physical therapy/rehab to get more movement back in his thumb.
Also has two sisters: One who, along with Josh, is in the research and planning stages of starting up Mighty's Fast Food, a fast food restaurant that will promote healthier fare and use of organic, local produce.
Parents are Don and Michelle (LeFevre) Maurer. Father is a emergency room doctor, and mother is a nurse/midwife. Michelle attended Emerson with Jay Leno.
Announced the formation of his own production company, 2 Bridges Productions, with his brother Devin, as a co-producer and creative partner.
