FLANERY

Sean Patrick Flanery was born in Lake Charles, La. and raised in a small town outside of Houston, Texas. While attending the University of St. Thomas in Houston, he saw a beautiful girl leaving a building on campus every Monday and decided to drop an English class and sign up for "whatever the hell they were teaching in that building". The building was the University's theater department, and the class was acting. Through his theater studies, he penned a piece of children's theater and decided afterwards to pack up his car and head to Los Angeles with the hopes of actually producing the play. Somewhere in the process, an agent approached him and requested to represent him commercially. His first paid role in Hollywood was a Kellog's Corn Pops commercial starring alongside none other than Paul Walker. Shortly after a string of national commercials, the same agent then began representing him for TV/film roles. He very quickly landed the title role in George Lucas' The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992) after shooting 2 films for the Mickey Mouse Club called Just Perfect (1990) and My Life as a Babysitter (1990). Since then, Flanery has been in numerous films and TV shows every year, including Powder (1995), The Dead Zone (2002), Saw 3D (2010), Suicide Kings (1997), and the runaway cult hit The Boondock Saints (1999), and most recently, the TV show "Powers" for Sony, which was scheduled to be released in early 2015.

He won after qualifying on the pole both times.

www.rottentomatoes.com)Easygoing, all-American and athletic, Sean Patrick Flanery was a natural choice to star in "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" (ABC, 1992-93), a role he would reprise over the course of his busy career in a string of made-for-TV and direct-to-video sequels. Despite the controversy surrounding director Victor Salva, Flanery notched his biggest dramatic showcase as a supernaturally gifted, ultra-sensitive albino in "Powder" (1995). Famous to a particular generation, Flanery booked roles in "Suicide Kings" (1997), "Simply Irresistible" (1999) and "The Boondock Saints" (1999) as well as on "Stephen King's Dead Zone" (USA Network, 2002-07), but frequently appeared in lower-profile genre projects, including the horror schlock "KAW" (Sci Fi Channel, 2008) and "Mongolian Death Worm" (Syfy, 2010). He notched a flashy supporting turn as a duplicitous self-help author undone by his lies in "Saw 3-D" (2010) and joined the cast of "The Young and the Restless" (CBS, 1973- ). Although never quite achieving mainstream stardom, Flanery built an impressively lengthy career and a devoted group of fans who enjoyed his eclectic professional range. (Source:
