Nathan Gamble: ‘Mad Men’ moppet finds ‘Time’

Youth Impact Report 2011: Up Next

The Seattle native, who got his start doing commercials and modeling through a local agency, was “totally shocked” when, after a nationwide search of more than 20,000 boys, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu cast him as Brad Pitt’s son in his 2006 drama “Babel.”

“It was only my second-ever audition,” he recalls. “Movie auditions were so rare, and it all happened so fast I could barely process it.”

The role landed Gamble an agent and manager and, predictably, more parts playing sons — in Stephen King’s “The Mist” and TV shows “Hank” and “Runaway.”

Gamble has also appeared on such TV series as “Ghost Whisperer,” “CSI” and “House,” but his focus is on movies, where he’s racked up such high-profile credits as “The Dark Knight” and “Marley & Me.” His latest success is the family-friendly “Dolphin Tale,” followed by two indies, “Barlowe Mann” and “25 Hill,” both directed by Corbin Bernsen, and the sci-fi adventure “Robosapien: Rebooted.”

“Movies are my passion,” he says, “but I also love writing, so if my acting career goes haywire, I’d love to write a script with my dad, who’s a writer.”
