Maxim Knight stars on TNT’s sci-fi drama FALLING SKIES. Knight already has 15 film credits and will next star on the big screen opposite Melissa Leo, Nick Cannon, Rosanna Arquette and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges in the dramatic feature Ball Don’t Lie. Knight’s mature character “Sticky” portrays a young boy who is witness to his mother’s suicide and has to face and ultimately triumph over life’s challenges and unfair circumstances.
Knight continues to showcase his dramatic chops with numerous appearances on hit shows such as NBC’s Parenthood, ABC’s Brothers & Sisters, CBS’s Criminal Minds and Three Rivers and A&E’s former hit The Cleaner.
A Second City alum, Knight’s comedic strengths are undeniable. He held his own opposite comedian Frank Caliendo on TBS’s Frank TV, and has generated big laughs on HBO’s Funny or Die Presents and Hallmark Channel’s heartwarming holiday classic, Our First Christmas starring opposite Dixie Carter. Most recently, he brought his brand of funny to FX’s Wilfred, a remake of the critically acclaimed Australian hit.
Knight is also an accomplished voice-over artist, with credits including Columbia Pictures’ much anticipated The Smurfs, Judd Apatow’s Bridesmaids, Twentieth Century Fox’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, and multiple episodes of Disney Channel’s Special Agent Oso just to name a few. Knight currently resides in Los Angeles.
