Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Chauncey Leopardi is a former child actor whose career faded in early adulthood. He is perhaps best known for his role as Michael "Squints" Palledorous from the 1993 family comedy "The Sandlot," a sentimental tale of neighborhood kids bonded together through baseball. Leopardi would reprise his role as an adult, as simply Squints, in the 2007 direct-to-video "The Sandlot 3," and he attempted to capitalize on his connection to the character by later taking the name "_squintz" for his Twitter feed. Leopardi started his career on television at age nine, appearing as a young hobo in the TV movie "A Girl of the Limberlost," and he also appeared on two episodes of the legal drama "L.A. Law."

In 1995, he played one of Phil Hartman's three kids in the Sinbad con-man comedy, "Houseguest," and he also landed a supporting role in the blockbuster ghost comedy "Casper," starring Bill Pullman and Christina Ricci.

In his late-teens, Leopardi made several recurring appearances as bully Alan White, tormentor of lead characters on the critically acclaimed but short-lived NBC comedy "Freaks and Geeks." In his early 20s, he had a five-episode stint on the WB's mother-daughter drama , "Gilmore Girls," before fading into Twitterdom, with the lone exception of his "Sandlot" reprisal.
