Rob Pinkston is your typical Southern California teen. He loves playing video games, body boarding and playing guitar. What sets Rob apart is that he has a recurring role on the Nickelodeon TV Show, "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide", works with Ashton Kutcher on the MTV Show "Punk'd", and has 4 feature films to premiere: "The Derby Stallion" , "The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang", "If I had Known I was a Genius", and "Parental Guidance Suggested"!
Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide chronicles the wacky adventures of Ned Bigby (Devon Werkheiser) who shares his tips and tricks on navigating junior high hurdles. " Each episodes takes one week to shoot," tells Rob," and I get to work with an awesome group of people." The list includes: Jim J. Bullock ("Too Close for Comfort"), Meshach Taylor ("Designing Women"), and Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years"). Rob plays Coconut Head, a nickname his character receives because of a haircut gone terribly wrong. "My mom gives me a haircut right before the first day of school," tells Rob," and it comes out in the shape of a coconut! Not a good first impression!" Rob worked all three seasons on Ned's with over 42 episodes to his credit!
Rob also starred in MTV's "Punk'd" with Ashton Kutcher. He appears in 5 episodes where he takes part in some pretty devilish pranks on some well-known celebrities: tennis star Serena Williams, basketball great Dirk Nowitzski, Zac Braff (star of "Scrubs"), and singers Jos Stone and Jo Jo!
Rob co-starred in the movie "The Derby Stallion" with Zac Efron, ("Summerland", Disney's "High School Musical"), and Crystal Hunt, ("The Guiding Light"). Shot on location in North Georgia, this is a family film about a boy and his desire to be an equestrian champion.
Rob worked on location in Portland, Oregon filming "The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang" with Jeremy Sumpter, ("Peter Pan"), Justin Long, ("Herbie: Fully Loaded", "Accepted"), and Carl Weathers, ("Rocky"). This is the next project from the Producers of the hit film "Napoleon Dynamite". Premiering at the Slamdance Film Festival, the film took top honors as Best Comedy Winner!
Rob also had the chance to work with Whoopie Goldberg on the project titled, "If I had Known I was a Genius"! Rob plays a kid who is terrorizing the staff of a large Costco type store. This film also stars Marcus Redmond and Sharon Stone. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2007.
Rob landed the role of a wheelchair-bound teen in the Dimension Films project, "Parental Guidance Suggested". An irreverent sketch comedy feature in the vein of "Kentucky Fried Movie" starring Venessa Lengies ("American Dreams"), Frankie Muniz ("Malcolm in the Middle"), and Ryan Pinkston ("Soul Plane")! In the film Rob and Ryan play school buddies. It was great for Rob and Ryan to finally get to work together! Rob and Ryan have known each other for some time now, but still don't believe they are related.
