Sam Huntington

Sam Huntington began his career on stage at age nine at the prestigious Peterborough Players in Peterborough, NH (the town where he was born), where he performed over three seasons in such roles as Jem in To Kill a Mockingbird opposite James Rebhorn. Over a ten month period spent in New York at age thirteen, he performed in commercials and three films, including Disney's Jungle 2 Jungle, starring opposite Tim Allen and Martin Short. Sam continued to attend high school in New Hampshire and submitted audition tapes from his home. Through one such tape he landed the starring role of Jam in Detroit Rock City. One semester into his freshman year at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, Sam was cast to play a goofy Chris Klein spoof in Not Another Teen Movie. Sam stayed on then in Los Angeles, putting school 'on hold' to focus on his acting.

In his next film, Rolling Kansas, Sam played Dinkadoo Murphy, a paraplegic with an attitude problem; the film premiered at Sundance in 2003 to outstanding reviews. Sam then played a young submarine crew-mate alongside William H. Macy in the WW2 drama In Enemy Hands. At this year's Sundance Festival, Sam starred in the comedy Freshman Year as a college freshman aided in his quest for Miss Right Now by John Goodman. He currently is playing the lead role in an independent film called Molding Clay for director William Katt.
