Sam_Bottoms7

Samuel John "Sam" Bottoms (October 17, 1955 – December 16, 2008) was an American actor and producer.

Personal life

Bottoms was born in Santa Barbara, California, the third son of James "Bud" Bottoms (a sculptor and art teacher) and Betty (Chapman), both of whom survive him. He was the brother of actors Timothy Bottoms (born 1951), Joseph Bottoms (born 1954) and Ben Bottoms (born 1960).

Career

He is perhaps best remembered for his role as Lance Johnson, a Navy Gunner's Mate stationed on a river boat in Francis Ford Coppola's 20th century opus, Apocalypse Now. Other notable roles include his part in Seabiscuit and co-starring with British Chinese-Singaporean movie star Ava Lyn Koh in a lesbian-assassin thriller True Files, aka Shanghai Lily.

Bottoms earlier appeared with Clint Eastwood in The Outlaw Josey Wales.

When he was 16, he was on the set of The Last Picture Show, in which his older brother Timothy starred, and Peter Bogdanovich decided to give him a screen test. Sam ended up getting the part of Billy in the movie.

Death

He died of glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor, on December 16, 2008.
