Did you know?

  • Sam lives with Jessica Lang and they have two children, Hannah and Walker.
  • Sam suffers from aviophobia - the fear of flying.
  • In 1979, Sam won a Pulitzer Price in Drama for his three-act play "Buried Child."
  • Sam was once married to O-lan Jones. They had one son.
  • Sam is a published author as well. He writes plays, music, poetry and prose.
  • Sam and his family live on a horse ranch in Minnesota.
  • His most recent play, "The Late Henry Moss," drew big names out to audition for a part. Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson and Nick Nolte star in the family-wrenching drama.
  • In the 70's, Sam would write down everything. He carried around pocket-sized notebooks and would write anything interesting he heard. As a joke, one of his playwriting classes gave him a gift...a box of the tiny notebooks.
