“Nothing has changed (since appearing on ‘7th Heaven’) whatsoever. My brother and I still live in the same crappy apartment and it’s wonderful. We are too lazy to move. We do exactly the same stuff and lead the same lifestyle we did before we got into acting.” George Stults on the prominence game
American actor and former male fashion model George Stults is best known for portraying police officer Kevin Kinkirk on the WB’s longest running and still highest rated series “7th Heaven” (2002-2007). The role brought the actor a Teen Choice Award in 2003. He also had major roles in the movies What Lies Above, (2004) and Night Skies (2007).
“Kevin Kinkirk will never have a dark side. I mean, everybody freaked out when he had two sips of champagne. Nope. I don’t think you’ll ever see him losing it on 7th Heaven.” George Stults
Currently, the Michigan native performer resides in Los Angeles with his brother, fellow “7th Heaven” regular, Geoff, who plays his brother Ben on the show.
Childhood and Family:
George Sheehy Stults was born on August 16, 1975, in Detroit, Michigan, although he was raised in Colorado. He started taking acting and drama lessons in high school. He also participated in a number of stage productions. Aside from acting, George was interested in wresting, and later attended the University of Southern California on a wrestling scholarship. However, he transferred to Whittier College in his 3rd year to be closer to younger brother and fellow actor Geoff.
A wrestling star in high school, George Stults got his career start in life as a model. A commercial agent discovered the good-looking guy eating lunch on Sunset Blvd and stopped to give him her card. He modeled for Liz Claiborne and appeared in a series of television and print ads for the fragrance Bora Bora. After that, he quit modeling and then entered into the world of acting.
Stults had his first taste in front of the television camera in 2001 when he landed guest spots in such series as “Will & Grace” and “Friends.” His big breakthrough arrived that same year when he was cast in the regular role of police officer Kevin Kinkirk on the WB long-running series “7th Heaven,” where at the time younger brother Geoff already had a recurring role as Mary Camden’s love interest Ben Kinkirk. Originally, Stults auditioned for the role of a kid who compels people to drink, but a week later the producers asked him to play Ben’s older brother, realizing that he was the real-life brother of Geoff. Now still starring in the show, Stults was handed a 2003 Teen Choice in the category of Choice TV Breakout Star - Male.
While working on “7th heaven,” Stult landed a major role in the film What Lies Above, a 2004 action/adventure starring Nicole Eggert and Marc Singe. Two years later, he starred as John, a man who comes into contact with four breast cancer sufferers, in his television film debut, Four Extraordinary Women (2006). In this Gail Harvey-helmed drama, the actor teamed up with Laura Harris, Joely Collins, Lindsay Wagner and Katie Boland. Recently, he played Matt in the horror film Night Skies (2007), opposite Jason Connery and A.J. Cook.
