My name is Sam, and I am an actor. In addition to acting, I'm working on a webseries, which will one day be sketch comedy, but for right now is just me and my roommate putting ourselves though crazy movie marathons and talking about them (www.youtube.com/twofatguysshow). I am overweight, but I am working on that while taking all of the funny, fat, sidekick roles I can get before I start to lose some serious weight.
Like most actors, I am outgoing, spontaneous, and weird. You know, the kind of weird where you want to keep watching me do what I am doing, but don't want anyone to know you're with me kinda weird.
The reason I perform is out of a genuine desire to make people happy. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a smile on someones face and knowing that I was the one to put it there.
Currently, when I'm not on stage, I work as a Job Coach for people with disabilities. It's a ton of fun and extremely rewarding. Before that I was a photographer at The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium and a programs teacher at COSI, which was crazy fun.
Movies: Pretty much everything except modern slasher films. My all time favorite movie (after careful consideration after working at Blockbuster for a year an a half) is Princess Bride. Notable other favorites include (in no order): Every Pixar movie (Incredibles is my favorite), Big Lebowski, Star Wars, The Prestige, Fight Club, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Lord of War, Lucky Number Slevin, American Beauty, Reservoir Dogs, Labyrinth, Tommy Boy, Surf Ninjas (If you are familiar with Surf Ninjas, please message me, I am beginning to think this movie never existed for anyone else), Galaxy Quest, Watchmen, and pretty much everything else. This list is never truly finished.
TV Shows: Firefly, Doctor Who, Misfits, Sherlock, Community, Game of Thrones, Venture Bros, Arrested Development, Parks & Rec, Person of Interest, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, SNL, The Office, Big Bang Theory, Mythbusters, Family Guy
Music: Despite having been a Music major in college, I don't really listen to music much as a pastime, so I am not very pop culture literate when it comes to music. If you show me music you like, I will probably like it too, and thank you for showing me something new. I don't discover music on my own very often. I am still stuck in the Beatles and Queen era.
However, I am not sure if that makes me deep, or a big nerd. I am fine with either.
I love meeting new people, and am always up for people to play games with or sing, or go geocaching if the weather isn't too cold.
