Biography

Early life

Jeremy Sumpter was born in Monterey, California, the son of Sandra (née Johnson) and Gary Sumpter. His siblings, twin sister, Jessica, and younger sister, Gigi, are also actresses. He was raised in the small town of Mount Sterling, Kentucky, until he was eleven. He won IMTA's Pre-Teen Male Model of the Year award in 2000. Soon afterward, he signed with Mark Robert Management and his family moved to Los Angeles, where he currently resides.

Career

In July 2002, Sumpter, then thirteen years old, was selected for the role of Peter Pan, breaking the long-standing tradition of young women playing the part in stage and live-action film adaptations of the story. During filming (fall of 2002), he grew several inches, requiring some filming and staging tricks to conceal his height in scenes filmed late in production. Sumpter did nearly all of his stunts for the film himself. To prepare, he says he practiced sword fighting as much as five hours a day, as well as training in gymnastics and lifting weights. While filming in Australia, he supplemented his training with cricket and surfing. The $140 million-budgeted film opened in December 2003, but did poorly, possibly due to reports of its more "adult" treatment of the J. M. Barrie story and competition at the box office from the highly-anticipated "".

Sumpter spent the summer of 2005 in Oregon filming the comedy "The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang", which was theatrically released in November, 2007. He also appears in the independent film "An American Crime", where he portrays Coy Hubbard. He also appeared in an episode of CSI Miami as the boyfriend of a girl whose parents are murdered. He has completed filming "Calvin Marshall" in which he plays the part of Caselli.fact|date=August 2008 He is also attached to appear in "Prep School" and "Word of Mouth".fact|date=August 2008
