Reece Daniel Thompson
If Reece Thompson's appearances on such popular television shows as Tru Calling, The 4400, and Smallville didn't get him noticed by viewers, then his role as a stuttering teen who joins the debate team to win the heart of a high-school beauty in director Jeffrey Blitz's quirky comedy drama Rocket Science is sure to do the trick. A prolific television actor whose performances in such family-friendly shows as Zixx, Trollz, and Three Moons Over Milford served well to build him a healthy young fan base, Thompson was looking toward a fairly luminous future by the time he was cast in his first leading-man role. While the part of a stuttering teen seeking to impress a pretty classmate might not have been the most glamorous role a young actor could hope for, it did allow Thompson to prove that he had something more to offer the screen than just another pretty face. While Thompson had previously appeared in such features as Dreamcatcher and The Sandlot 2, this was his first headlining role, and he seemed more than up to the task.
