About The Cast
From moody goth (Gravity) to mean girl (Bad Kids Go To Hell) to her recent role as a robber (Insider) actor Augie Duke has proven her alacrity towards roles that carry more risk and variance than your average young starlet. Born into an artistic Los Angeles family, the pursuit of acting seemed like a natural fit for Duke, whose career has blossomed significantly over the past four years in both TV and cinema. Her projects have been aimed at teens, gamers, and the middle aged alike, which is just a testament to her ability to appeal to a variety of genres. However, Duke certainly isn't afraid to dip into dissidence, exhibiting a grittier side of human nature--something only an person skilled in the art of catharsis can accomplish. Duke is looking forward to a fruitful career on camera for years to come.

There are few actors who ever speak to the relevance of their time period. Jillian Leigh could be named one of the few, as her performances, while diverse, all articulate the ethos of today’s young woman. From sardonic leading lady (A BIG Love Story) to lesbian slam poet (Squaresville), to hipstefied fashionista (City Baby), Leigh has clearly made a mark for herself as a go-to hire for contemporary works, and one with an authentically human quality. Born in small town Pennsylvania, Leigh took charge of her career, establishing her name in the festival circuit, as well as both the New York and LA indie film scenes, all the while staying true to audacious and astute female roles. Leigh happily immerses herself in projects of her choosing, often living on location, and is interested in every aspect of the production process. Like most young women today, she is anything but one-dimensional, and she makes the noble effort to ensure this comes through in her work. A personality this fierce is certain to carve out her own singular and resolute place in the business.
Born in Los Angeles, California, Sam was born into a show business family and had dreams of following the family trade from an early age. His parents are actors Bruce Boxleitner and Kitty Holcomb Ogilvy and his stepparents are actors Ian Ogilvy and Melissa Gilbert. He is brother to Lee and Michael Boxleitner and Dakota Brinkman, who are also actor/film makers. Sam attended Chaminade college prep in West Hills, California, where he excelled in the arts, especially drama and music. After staring in several plays and small film roles, Sam made the decision to put acting on hold and focus more on music. He attended The Musician’s Institute in Hollywood where he attained a commercial certificate for contemporary composition and playing guitar .
Sam spent the better half of a decade composing music and touring with various bands locally and nationally. After a long and tumultuous tour, Sam decided to take a break. He got a job as a runner that turned into a job as a set PA. After approximately fifteen minutes of being on set, Sam was bitten by “the bug” and made the decision he would stop at nothing to be in front of the camera. He has not looked back since.
The Badger Game is Sam’s first lead role since his decision to re-pursue acting. He is incredibly proud and excited to be a part of such a fun film.
