Nate Parker

It wasn't until after Nate Parker graduated from Oklahoma State University as a wrestling star that acting even registered as a possible career path. But since being discovered Nate has not considered anything other than acting as his life's goal and he is quickly climbing the ladder to be one of Hollywood's elite.

Nate recently completed production on two independent features. First as the star of Tunnel Rats a feature that looks at the Vietnam War and focuses on a special US combat unit that hunted Viet Cong in the endless tunnels under the jungles of Vietnam and second in Felon in which he stars alongside Val Kilmer as an officer in the penal system who is led by his strong morality instead of the corrupt system that surrounds him.

Among Nate's other feature film credits are Pride with Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard, Dirty Cruel World, and the title role of Rome in the independent feature Rome And Jewel. His television appearances include the Turkish television hit Valley Of The Wolves, opposite Sharon Stone, Cold Case and The Unit.

Besides acting, Nate also writes screenplays, television pilots and continues to be an avid athlete. In his free time he coaches kids in wrestling for a local high school in Los Angeles.
