Profile Bio Text
Growing up the son of Norman Howell, an Emmy winning Stunt Coordinator and multiple award winning Stuntman, Kanin Howell was exposed to movie-making at an early age. It was no surprise that he followed in his father Norman's footsteps, and debuted as a Stuntman at the age of five, working on the film Vice Versa and earning his coveted SAG card. After that, Kanin started working regularly, stunt doubling various actors. Kanin, a third generation cowboy, showcased his excellent horseback ability on several projects including the multiple Academy award winning film, Dances With Wolves, in which he was cabled off the back of a horse at only 8 years old. As a child he also stunt doubled for Elijah Wood on Radio Flyer, and had the privilege of working with director Tim Burton on the film Ed Wood. The young stunt man quickly created a name for himself in the film industry working on numerous hits including The Patriot, Pearl Harbor, Spiderman and many more, all before his twenty-first birthday. In 2007 he became a member of Stunts Unlimited, an elite group of professional Stuntmen founded in 1970 by the Legendary Stuntman Hal Needham.
By the age of twenty-five, Kanin already had hundreds of credits under his belt. It was no surprise he began Stunt Coordinating at such a young age, further advancing his career. The first project Kanin Stunt Coordinated was the national Emerald Nuts commercial "Addicted to Golf", directed by Brian Lee Hughes. Since Emerald Nuts, Kanin has Stunt Coordinated nearly twenty commercials including Geico, L'oréal Paris, Burger King, and Metro PCS. More recently, Kanin Stunt Coordinated the horror film Hollows Grove (2014), the 2013 hit film, The Call, starring Halle Berry, and Season 4 of the cult classic Arrested Development. Kanin has also Stunt Coordinated several TV shows, including episodes of CSI: NY, Franklin & Bash and the made for TV movie Call Me Crazy.
Despite his achievements in the stunt world, Kanin Howell also had a passion for acting. He worked alongside renowned actress and acting coach Dee Wallace Stone, and has since had the privilege of working with many Hollywood heavyweights including Kevin Bacon, Dennis Hopper, Kyra Sedgwick, and Christian Slater, among others. On the small screen, Kanin Howell has appeared in some of television's most popular drama series, including True Blood, Southland, CSI:NY, Sons of Anarchy, and Criminal Minds.
With two SAG nominations, Kanin continues to advance his accomplished stunt career. Kanin recently Stunt Coordinated the soon to be released horror film Hollows Grove and stunt doubled Ewan McGregor in the upcoming western, Jane Got a Gun, staring Natalie Portman. He also stunt doubled Garrett Hedlund in the upcoming William Monahan film, Mojave. Kanin resides in Los Angeles, CA.
