CRIMINAL MINDS: CHANDLER CANTERBURY PRESS RELEASE


Criminal Minds Guest Star: Chandler Canterbury is a 3rd grader and he studies violin. He enjoys baseball, basketball and a good steak.

Chandler broke out into the entertainment industry with his first feature film last October shot in Austin, Texas called Gary the Tennis Coach along side of his brother, Colby, and starring Seann William Scott and Houston’s own Randy Quaid (set to be released Spring of 2008). From there he has taken Hollywood by storm with supporting roles in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Warner Brothers/Paramount Pictures starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett – release of November 26, 2008) and Powder Blue (starring Forest Whitaker, Jessica Biel, Ray Liotta, Kris Kristofferson and Houston’s own Patrick Swayze – release of 2008).

Chandler had the wonderful opportunity to film this guest starring role in Criminal Minds in August of this year and work some of the best in the industry including Gordon Clapp (Emmy award winner for NYPD Blue), Eddie Cibrian (Vanished, Invasion, Third Watch and Sunset Beach) and the series regulars, Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J Cook, and Paget Brewster. The episode is directed by Edward Allen Bernero and written by Chris Mundy.

In October, Chandler will travel to Toronto to film Universal Picture’s Sci-Fi thriller The Repossession Mambo along side of Jude Law and Forest Whitaker.

There are not many 8 year olds that can say they have played Brad Pitt, been kissed by Cate Blanchett, had Jessica Biel cry over them, gone to heaven with Ray Liotta, and have been trained to hold a real gun!!

Chandler is represented by A+ Actors of Texas in Houston and CESD and 1 Management in Los Angeles.

EIGHT years old! Man that is so young to have worked with the quality of stars he has worked with. That is really great. Good for him. He is starting his career at a really young age. He will learn from all these great actors and actresses.

ruby said...

Unsub or victim?????

He is too cute looking to be a serial anything and too cute to be a victim.

Whatever he does on the show I am sure it will be really good.

He is a cutie.

mel said...

Unsub AND Victim (in a way) - family happens to be personal friends. VERY GROUNDED and normal.

lanie said...

Good luck to the little fellow as he moves through his career. I wish him all the best of luck.

beth said...

Thanks Mel. Tell his family that any guest star on CM is a friend of ours. We'll watch and clap for him when he comes on the tv in our house.
