Chauncey Leopardi — ‘The Sandlot’ Kids Then and Now

Then: By the time Leopardi played the wisecracking Michael “Squints” Palledorous in ‘The Sandlot’ he already had quite a few acting credits under his belt. The then-12-year old had appeared in ‘Father of the Bride’ and a bunch of TV shows, including ‘The Commish’ and ‘Evening Shade.’

Now: Leopardi had two substantial and very different TV roles as an adult, playing the bully who terrorized the titular geeks on ‘Freaks and Geeks’ and the geeky Kyle on ‘Gilmore Girls.’ He reprised his role as Squints in 2007’s straight-to-DVD reunion flick ‘The Sandlot: Heading Home.’ After taking a six-year break from acting, he returned in 2013 by starring in a movie called ‘Coldwater.’ Leopardi also maintains an active presence on Twitter, where he tweets under the name of his memorable ‘Sandlot’ character.
