Sam Witwer

Sam Witwer is an American screen actor and musician best known for his roles as the pilot Crashdown on the new Battlestar Galactica (Reimagined), Aidan in Being Human (Remake) and Davis Bloom/Doomsday in the 8th season of Smallville. He has also made a number of other minor appearances on the shows Dexter, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Shark, Dark Angel and Bones. Gamers would recognize him as both the voice and look of Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller/Galen Marek, in the Star Wars video game The Force Unleashed (he also voices Emperor Palpatine). He returns as Starkiller's clone in the sequel, The Force Unleashed II.

Sam is very much a geek at heart, being a huge gamer and an all around Star Wars nerd (making his job on Unleashed a childhood dream come true). He had attended Juilliard School of Drama for a time but according to his own website "he got kicked out, but it was all good!" He has said in interviews that grades have never been his thing.

As of late, he seems to be the go to guy for Villain Protagonists and Anti-Heroes. Sam likes to get inside the heads of his characters and bring out their sympathetic qualities along side their villainous ones, compelling the audience to root for them (or at least sympathize) no matter what alignment they are at the time. And he can go from a nice, normal guy to being scary-as-hell at a drop of a hat.

Apart from his acting career, he has his own metal rock band called The Crashtones.
