Here, in the 2000s, he appeared in two feature movies where he managed to unleash his potential. As a result, he got critical acclaims. These successful works helped Sam to get an outstanding experience working on the picture alongside Bruce Willis and Colin Farrel.

It was certainly not easy to make it, driving across the continent with seven smelly guys in an R.V., and the fact that she still came away with a brilliant performance is amazing. Thankfully our marriage came out okay. We had a lot of stressful times on the road, and I have to say it was a pretty big accomplishment for a couple who had been married for less than a year".
