Isaac R. Singleton
Born in Melbourne, Florida not far from Cape Canaveral, Singleton never planned on a career in show business. His father, who initially worked for NASA, moved the family to Germany where he was stationed in the Air Force when Singleton was a teenager. Fascinated with another country's history and language, Singleton quickly became fluent in German. After high school he returned to the United States to pursue a degree in economics at Florida A&M University with the goal of becoming a stocks and commodities broker. On a lark he enrolled in an acting class, but unexpectedly landed the lead role in a school production of The Bad Man, for which he received rave reviews. As luck would have it, the stock market crashed at exactly the same time.
Singleton switched his course of study to communications and transferred to the University of Central Florida. While in Orlando he found a part time job as a caterer on the new Universal Studios lot. Almost immediately the director of the studio's theme park entertainment division noticed Singleton and cast him in the park's live action show, Dr. Doom. Before long, Singleton was learning the stunt business, playing a lead role in Universal's The Wild West Stunt Show and then in Disney's Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.
After earning his bachelor of arts, Singleton moved to Hollywood and once again worked for Universal at their theme park attraction, Waterworld. Now a trained actor and stuntman, he soon booked his first role in front of the camera on Fox Television's The X-Files.
