Whatever Happened To Cam Gigandet From The Roommate?

Cam Gigandet is a name most teens from the early 2000s will associate with antagonist Kevin Volchok from The O.C. Those who lived through their adolescent years from the mid to late 2000s will recognize the name as belonging to the actor behind the vicious vampire James from the Twilight franchise. You might even recognize him from the musical movie Burlesque. Meanwhile, thriller fans know Gigandet from The Roommate, a psychological blood-chiller from 2011 about a young woman named Rebecca (Leighton Meester) who forms a dangerous obsession with college student Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly).

Whatever the association that comes to mind, Gigandet seems to have gone relatively quiet, with fewer big-name projects on his resume these days. But that assumption is mostly wrong; the actor is still working, and has put out least one project a year since the 2011 release of The Roommate, with the sole exception of a break in 2015. Here's what Cam Gigandet has been up to over the years.

Cam Gigandet has kept busy since The Roommate

In 2011, Gigandet appeared in Trespass and Hicks. The following year saw him in three films: the made-for-TV movie Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden in the lead role of Stunner; as Jake Flynn in The Tin Star, another TV movie; and as Bishop in Making Change. Plush and Free Ride were released in 2013, before Gigandet's busiest year came in 2014. That year saw him appearing in a recurring role on the TV series Reckless. Gigandet also took the leading role of Rich Johnson in Bad Johnson and another starring role as Butch "Cobra" Masters in Red Sky. Additionally, he played Derek Grant in In The Blood, Wes Jacobs in 4 Minute Mile, Mark Kessler in Nanny Cam, and made an appearance on the TV series Day One.

More recently, Gigandet has taken on roles in the remake of The Magnificent Seven and Broken Vows in 2016, The Shadow Effect and Black Side Delta in 2017, and Assimilate in 2019. Between 2016 and 2018 Gigandet also played a recurring role in the TV series Ice as Jake Green, appearing on 20 episodes of the drama series.

Cam Gigandet will appear in Netflix's Dangerous Lies

Gigandet also has a number of upcoming projects. The actor currently has two movies in the post-production phase: Dangerous Lies and Without Remorse

Dangerous Lies is another American mystery thriller film, in which Gigandet plays the role of Ben. Produced by Netflix, Dangerous Lies is due to be released onto the streaming site on April 30. Other stars appearing in the flick include Jamie Chung (The Hangover: Part II), Sasha Alexander (NCIS and Dawson's Creek), Elliott Gould (Friends), and Camila Mendes (Riverdale).

The film sees a young caregiver unexpectedly inherit the entire wealth of her new, elderly patient when he dies. What she doesn't realize is that the inheritance will lead her into a tangled web of deceit and murder, putting both her and her husband's lives in mortal danger. How exactly Gigandet's character plays into the danger the female caregiver finds herself in isn't entirely clear, as Netflix hasn't released a trailer for Dangerous Lies.

Without Remorse is another upcoming Cam Gigandet project

Without Remorse is set for a September 2020 release date, and is based on Tom Clancy's 1993 novel of the same name. The story follows former Navy-SEAL-turned-CIA-agent John Clark (Michael B. Jordan), who's seeking revenge for the death of his girlfriend at the hands of a Baltimore drug lord... only to discover he's accidentally stumbled on a much larger conspiracy.

In the film, Gigandet plays the supporting role of Keith Webb, a member of John's former SEAL team (via Deadline). Keith doesn't appear as such in the Without Remorse novel, although it does seem that many of the characters have undergone name changes for the film. Other cast members include Jacob Scipio as Hatchet and Luke Mitchell as Rowdy, the two other members of the SEAL team, as well as Jamie Bell as Robert Ritter, Jodie Turner-Smith as Karen Greer, and Brett Gelman as Viktor Rykov.

Cam Gigandet is working on Wreckage

Gigandet also has another film on his schedule. Wreckage is currently in the pre-production phase with no exact release date yet announced. The action drama film, brought about by Double Dutch International, focuses on a man who's trapped in a basement of rubble after a terrorist attack flattens the building — leaving him fighting for his life with no contact with the outside world but for a kind counter-terrorism agent (via Deadline). Gigandet is set to play the lead role of Tony, and currently has only one confirmed co-star: Emilie de Ravin (Lost and Once Upon a Time), who plays Alex Molina, presumably the counter-terrorism agent in question. Marco Ristori attached as director, with A.J. Ferrara adapting the screenplay.

"We are very excited to bring Wreckage to the world market. It's a very intense movie with a surprise ending," said Double Dutch International chief Mark Padilla in May 2019. "Cam Gigandet is perfect for the lead role."
