Jeremy Sumpter Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Feb 5, 1989
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001
  • Birth Name: Jeremy Robert Myron Sumpter

A California native who spent most of his childhood in Kentucky until the bright lights of Hollywood lured him back to the West Coast, Jeremy Sumpter impressed audiences with a chilling performance in [[Performer~P55571~Bill Paxton~billpaxton]]'s 2001 shocker [[Feature~V259829~Frailty~frailty]] before hitting a grand slam with his winning turn as a batboy harboring big league aspirations in the acclaimed television series Clubhouse in 2004. It was at age 11 that Sumpter first garnered attention when he became the winner of a Kentucky-based talent contest, and shortly after booking a manager, the talented youngster impressed [[Performer~P55571~Paxton~billpaxton]] so much that the actor-turned-director cast him as [[Performer~P196967~Matthew McConaughey~matthewmcconaughey]]'s young screen counterpart in [[Feature~V259829~Frailty~frailty]]. In 2002, Sumpter took to the waves as a young surfer experiencing a memorable childhood summer with his brother in [[Feature~V280754~Local Boys~localboys]], and he next stepped in front of the camera for none other than [[Performer~P27278~Danny Glover~dannyglover]] in the family-friendly drama [[Feature~V289355~Just a Dream~justadream]]. By 2003, it appeared as if Sumpter might be hitting his stride when he earned a Young Artist Award for his turn as the titular character in the 2003 fantasy [[Feature~V285317~Peter Pan~peterpan]], and the very next year he was making his maiden voyage into weekly television with his role on Clubhouse. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
