Brandon Quintin Adams — ‘Sandlot’ Kids Then And Now
Then: By the time Brandon Quintin Adams was cast as pitcher Kenny DeNunez in ‘The Sandlot,’ he was already a showbiz vet. The Topeka, Kansas native’s acting debut was in the 1988 Michael Jackson film ‘Moonwalker’ and he had been featured in ‘A Different World,’ ‘Empty Nest’ and ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’ Like ‘Sandlot’ teammate Mike Vitar, Adams also showed off his hockey skills, appearing as Jesse Hall in ‘The Mighty Ducks’ and the sequel ‘D2: The Mighty Ducks.’
Now: After a good run in ’90s, Adams’s acting credits have become few and far between. But Adams himself reports he’s been keeping himself busy in the “background” of the entertainment industry. (Gamers will recognize his work as the voice of Raijin in ‘Kingdom Hearts II.’) He’s also an aspiring rapper, and released the mixtape ‘B. Lee in H.D’ in 2009.
