Young actor Jeremy Sumpter burst onto the scene at the turn of the new millennium with impressive back-to-back performances in the chilling father-sons crime drama "Frailty" and the handsome adaptation of the children's classic "Peter Pan." Based on his work in these 2001 and 2003 films, a long cinematic career seemed assured. But TV is actually the medium where Sumpter went on to flourish. He landed the lead role in the short-lived CBS comedy-drama "Clubhouse," about a kid who gets to live out his dream on the staff of a New York City major league baseball team. After a sensationalistic Lifetime TV movie, "Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life," Sumpter eventually segued to the Friday night drama "Friday Night Lights." The actor's portrayal of J.D. McCoy introduced him to a whole new audience--all at a point in his life when he had barely reached the age of 20. Sumpter's success in TV paved the way for a new bunch of film opportunities, beginning with a co-starring role in the 2011 drama "Soul Surfer." The film is based on the story of Bethany Hamilton, a young woman who lost an arm to a shark while surfing in the ocean.
