Even though Sam Hennings remained relatively under-the-radar for most of his Hollywood career, he always delivered strong supporting roles both in film and on television. The hardworking actor launched his career in the mid-1980s with minor appearances on televised serials and in independent features. Hennings began to make bigger waves in his chosen profession the following decade with a featured role as a basketball coach in the biopic "Final Shot: The Hank Gathers Story" (1992). Throughout his career, Hennings acted opposite the biggest names in show business - from Holly Hunter to Anne Hathaway, but it was in the epic Howard Hughes biopic "The Aviator" (2004) that provided Hennings the opportunity to work with legendary director Martin Scorsese. The young actor's years working in the trenches of a tough industry prepared him for the challenge of playing a veteran police detective on "Memphis Beat" (TNT, 2010-11). Acting alongside Jason Lee on the acclaimed series opened wide numerous opportunities for Hennings to carry solo projects while also proving his talent and gumption as a seasoned character actor in ensemble productions.
