Sean Astin

Sean Patrick Astin (born Sean Patrick Duke; February 25, 1971) is an American film actor, director, and Oscar-nominated producer best known for his film roles as Mikey Walsh in The Goonies, the title character of Rudy, and Samwise Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In television, he guest starred as Lynn McGill on the fifth season of 24. Astin was born in Santa Monica, California, the son of actress Patty Duke (December 14, 1946 – March 29, 2016). At the time, it was erroneously reported that entertainer Desi Arnaz, Jr. was his biological father. When Michael Tell. a writer, music promoter and publisher of the newspaper The Las Vegas Israelite came to sublet her apartment and offered to marry her as a way to get of the scandal, Duke agreed. The marriage lasted only 13 days in 1970 and ended long before Astin was born. On August 5, 1972, Duke married actor John Astin. They divorced in 1985. Duke married Mike Pearce in 1986 “John, Desi, Mike or Papa Mike…my four dads.” says Sean.
