Sam, in a rather smart move, used all of this traction to get more eyes on himself as an upcoming actor, making the rounds and participating in a number of interviews regarding this speculated Green Lantern role.
Although that dream role for Sam Benjamin did not come to fruition, that hasn’t stopped the actor/writer from pushing forward and starring in a number of tv projects and even writing his own films like Vertical Entertainment released, “The Pay Day” which he wrote alongside Kyla Frye.
