Collins Pennie

Collins Pennie grew up in the 'Hood. Despite its many disadvantages, every so often you hear a success story that lifts and inspires. Collins Pennie is one of those stories. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y. June 20th 1985, Collins spent half of his childhood in numerous foster homes only to move out on his own at the tender age of 15. Collins was an ordinary kid who quickly realized that he wanted more out of life than what the Brooklyn projects had to offer. Armed with acting, singing and dance gifts Collins was able to leave a world where drugs and violence prevailed and find a new home in the world of entertainment.

Collins' undeniable talent and determination made the major industry power players take notice. After only four months in the business, Collins landed his first role playing Sean on the hit daytime drama As The World Turns. Just two months later Collins landed a guest-starring role playing Jimmy Gordon on the hit show Law & Order. A role playing a drug addicted thief on Without A Trace soon followed.

His Television work quickly caught the attention of the world-renowned Ford Model Management, who signed Collins. Soon after, he was chosen to be a part of the successful ck One fragrance campaign for Calvin Klein.

He now has three films under his belt: All Fall Down, a Showtime Network short directed by David Koepp, God's Forgotten House, and the Oscar nominated film Half Nelson.
