Pennsylvania native Sasha Joseph Neulinger is no stranger in front of the camera. Sasha's passion for acting began with TV appearances in national commercial spots. However, he quickly made the leap to film. At the age of ten, Sasha played "Bobby Walters" in the independent film, The Pirates of Central Park, a touching and imaginative story, based on the short story, "The Pirate of the Round Pond," by Lord Dunsany. Sasha was then cast in his theatrical film debut, still at the age of ten, in M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis. Following closely was his role as the bewildered young "Hal Larson" in the Farrelly brother's Shallow Hal, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Jack Black. In the title role of "Zachary Beaver" in John Schultz's When Zachary Beaver Came to Town, Neulinger shines in his sensitive portrayal of "the fattest boy in the world" alongside Jonathan Lipnicki and Eric Stoltz. Kids often recognize Sasha from his varied roles, from the young "Hal" to "Austin" ~ the title character in the wildly successful, multi Effie Award winning advertising campaign for Embassy Suites. When he is not working, Sasha attends the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Performing Arts in Bethlehem, PA. Sasha is a devoted fisherman and pursues both deep sea fishing expeditions and freshwater fishing in the lakes and streams of Pennsylvania, where he lives with his mother, sister and three dogs.
