Austin Butler receives first-ever Oscar nomination but still uses IMDB bio

Austin Butler is not ignoring where he came from after earning his first-ever Oscar nomination on Tuesday.

The IMDB profile of the 31-year-old actor was written in 2007 by his "proud parents," David Butler and his late mother Lori Butler, and has remained unchanged ever since.

His parents sweetly gushed about their son's early acting career in the biography, saying that it started after he landed "a rather permanent background-acting gig" on the 2004 episode of the Nickelodeon series Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and "from that point on, he considered himself to be a serious actor."

According to his parents, Butler's "first named (albeit uncredited) character was 'Toby' in the Hannah Montana episode 'Oops, I Meddled Again' in 2006 (girl broke up with him)."

Then his "first speaking role was in Zoey 101 (2005), as 'Dannifer' or 'Wrong Danny' (a few lines, and a girl poured soda down his shirt)."

They quipped that while " he got a "meatier role on Hannah Montana in 2007" it was "still a small part, but very fun."

They added: "a few more lines, and he got to fling popcorn on Miley Cyrus."
