Who Is That: Sam Rockwell

Name: Sam Rockwell
Occupation: Actor
Genre: Film
Born: November 5, 1968

Rockwell is one of the most versatile and unique actors working today. His original, unabashed, and quirky approach to every character he has played on the screen has won him both major critical and audience acclaim. His talents have won him both Montreal and Berlin Film Festival Awards as well as multiple other award nominations.

Growing up and training as an actor in both San Francisco and New York, he began his film career in 1989 with the movie Clownhouse. He won roles regularly from then on, including a small part in the 1990 hit film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But it wasn't until about ten years later that he gained major notice by playing a very wide range of characters in the films A Midsummer Night's Dream (as the lovable Francis Flute), The Green Mile (as the psychotically evil "Wild Bill" Wharton), and Galaxy Quest (as the completely buffoonish actor Guy Fleegman).

Rockwell's career skyrocketed as he went on to appear in the successful films Charlie's Angels, Matchstick Men, Heist, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Piccadilly Jim, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Frost/Nixon, among many others.

He has also appeared in multiple episodes of the TV shows "Law & Order", "NYPD Blue", and the short-lived "Prince Street".

His career continues to soar ever higher as he is appearing in many highly anticipated movies due out this year and next, including Iron Man 2, Betty Anne Waters, and providing a lead voiceover for the Disney film G-Force.

Sam Rockwell has a style and charisma all his own. Combine that with his tremendous talent and versatility, and we'll continue to see a lot of him for years to come.

p.s. I also happen to think he's sexy as hell. He can have his way with me whenever and if ever he chooses. Hotness displayed full force below from the film Lawn Dogs:

Humminuh, humminuh...
