about Sam
A self-annointed Greenwich Village Idiot, Sam grew up in the theatre world and after college entered that world as a dues paying Equity member. He has too many New York theater credits to list here, but is particularly fond of TRANSLATIONS, A SOLDIER’S PLAY, SAVAGE IN LIMBO, THE TAKING OF MISS JANIE, KID PURPLE, COMEDIANS, and GRAY SPADES. He is a long time member of Ensemble Studio Theater and a veteran of many summers at the Eugene O’Neill Playwrights conference, where he debuted works by John Patrick Shanley, James Yoshimura and Adam Rapp, among others, as well as a regular contributor to the Seven Devils in McCall, Idaho. Sam moved to LA in 1986. Notable film credits 
are: Raising Arizona, L.A. Story, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Stone Cold, Mod Squad, Slappy and the Stinkers. Upcoming films include A Thanksgiving Engagement, The Craigslist Killer, Americons, and Jenny’s Wedding.
TV credits abound with The Tracey Ullman Show, Likely Suspects, A League of their Own, Matt Waters, Medicine Ball, Stand by your Man, and his favorite, Dinosaurs. More recently, he recurred on King of Queens, Friends, Freaks and Geeks, and Breaking Bad, and even more recently on Scandal and The Fosters. This fall Sam debuted a new series for ABC on Friday nights called Cristela, which deserved a better fate, but network people are just as obtuse now as they ever were.
