      Sam Robards

      Sam Robards

      Highest Rated: 87% American Beauty (1999)

      Lowest Rated: 13% Catch That Kid (2004)

      Birthday: Dec 16, 1961

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      The handsome, easy-going son of famed actors Jason Robards and Lauren Bacall, Sam Robards studied acting and appeared in several plays Off-Broadway before making an impressive screen debut as a suitor to Molly Ringwald in Paul Mazursky's "Tempest" (1982), a savvy adaptation of Shakespeare's deserted island fantasy. He next drunkenly avoided commitment in the coming-of-age drama "Fandango," featuring a then unknown Kevin Costner and Robards' wife-to-be Suzy Amis, before Lewis Gilbert's "Not Quite Jerusalem" (both 1985) saw him play a happy-go-lucky American volunteer for kibbutz life romantically involved with Joanna Pacula. The film adaptation of Jay McInerney's "Bright Lights, Big City" (1988) marked his first association with actor Michael J Fox and the only time to date he has acted in a movie with his father. That same year, he had a supporting role in "Bird," Clint Eastwood's heartfelt biopic of famed jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker. He also portrayed Chaplain Kirk in Brian De Palma's flawed yet majestic Vietnam film, "Casualties of War" (1989), which reteamed him with Fox.
