Jamison Newlander is best known for playing Alan Frog, one of the two vampire-hunting brothers, in The Lost Boys (1987), alongside Corey Feldman. He reprises his role as Alan Frog in the Lost Boys: The Thirst (2010), as he and Feldman fight side-by-side again for what’s been celebrated as the return of the Frog Brothers. Newlander also makes an appearance as Alan Frog in one of the alternative endings for Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008).
Launching his career as a teenager, Newlander appeared in the 1987 remake of The Blob, and opposite Jason Bateman and Valery Harper in the TV show “Valerie.”
A graduate of Beverly Hills High School, he went on to get a BFA in acting at NYU, and acted on stages in New York, Vermont, Kentucky and California throughout his 20s. While doing theater, Newlander began writing and became an award-winning playwright with his 1996 play Remember This at Actors Theatre of Louisville. He put all of his talents together (writing, directing and acting) for his film Rooster, which played on the film festival circuit, most notably at the Hamptons International Film Festival in 2003.
Newlander’s latest project, WikisoapTM, is the first ever user-created soap opera on the web.
