Randall Batinkoff has worked with some of the best actors and directors in the movie industry over the last three decades. His acting career began at the age of nine. While shopping at a toy store with his mom, an agent came up and asked if he would be interested in auditioning for a commercial. Randall got the job and 50 more by the time he finished high school at Phillips Academy in Massachusetts. During the middle of his freshman year, at Brown University, he got his big break when he was cast as Stan Bobrucz in "For Keeps?". He graduated from Brown with a degree in International Relations.
After college he returned to Hollywood, where he portrayed Reg Goldman, the model-chasing son of the studio head who intimidates Tim Robbins in the classic Robert Altman film, _The Player_. Next he played Rip Van Kelt, the morally torn head of the football team in "School Ties", opposite Matt Damon, Brendan Fraser, and Chris O'Donnell, and Buffy's dim-witted boyfriend Jeffrey in the cult comedy "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".
Batinkoff had winning roles in John Singleton's "Higher Learning"; in Nicole Holofcener's Sundance debut "Walking and Talking"; in The "The Peacemaker", with Nicole Kidman and George Clooney; in _Mad City_ with Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta; and as Helen Hunt's vomit-hating, forehead-licking date in the James L. Brooks' Oscar-winning "As Good as It Gets".
Batinkoff starred in the edgy Sundance competitor "Dead Man's Curve", as Rand, a smooth, well-manicured killer opposite Keri Russell and Matthew Lillard, and the Slamdance-premiered "Let the Devil Wear Black", as a racist hit-man with Norman Reedus, Mary-Louise Parker and Jacqueline Bisset. Batinkoff received rave reviews from critics when he portrayed Hugh Hefner in the Peter Werner directed, USA studios film, "Hefner: Unauthorized".
Batinkoff plays opposite Jennifer Lopez and Martin Sheen in "Bordertown", Gregory Nava's drama about the Juarez murders; and in "Broken", where he co-stars with Heather Graham and Jeremy Sisto.
Randall recently had a memorable role in Lionsgate cult smash "Kick-Ass", based on the hit comic book of the same name, directed by Matthew Vaughn, and starring Nicolas Cage and Chloë Grace Moretz. Randall produced "Kick-Ass: The Game" for the Sony Playstation Network.
"37" marks his directorial debut, which he also co-wrote and produced.
