Meet Sam Witwer At Superman Celebration

Posted By TFN on April 1, 2010

Star Wars acting talent Sam Witwer, who brilliantly played the lead character role of Starkiller in the LucasArts smash-hit video game (and upcoming sequel) The Force Unleashed, will be making a guest appearance at this year's Superman Celebration. The convention will be held in Metropolis, Illinois during the week of June 10th-13th.

"Sam Witwer grew up in Glenview, Illinois, outside of Chicago. He attended Glenbrook South High School, where he was involved in drama and theater classes, as well as being the lead singer of a high school band. He attended the Julliard School of Drama before heading to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career. His first major film role was as Wayne Jessup in The Mist.

In 2008, Witwer was cast to play Doomsday, the new rival of Superman on Smallville?s eighth season after Michael Rosenbaum, who played the superhero?s arch-enemy, Lex Luthor, left the show. He is also known to audiences for his recurring roles as Lieutenant Alex ?Crashdown? Quartararo on the popular series Battlestar Galactica and Neil Perry on the Showtime series Dexter. A sci-fi fan growing up, he was happy to have landed a minor guest roll on Star Trek: Enterprise. His other television credits include guest appearances on Bones, Star Trek: New Voyages, Navy NCIS, Dragnet, Cold Case, TAG, and ER.

A lifetime Star Wars fan, Sam appeared as Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller/Galen Marek and as Darth Sidious, in the massively successful multimedia project Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Witwer provided both his voice and likeness to the lead characters across all of the mediums. He reprised his role as Galen Marek in the video game: Soulcalibur IV. There is also speculation that he will reprise his role of Starkiller for the Star Wars live-action TV series.

Witwer says that his first love is music and he is consequently the lead singer of his own band, The Crashtones. The bank released its first CD entitled "Colourful of the Stereo" in 2006. Witwer has since assembled a live line-up consisting of professional musicians and others in the industry, including Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Glenn Howerton, with whom he performs whenever time allows."
