Benton Jennings is an American film, television, and stage actor, based in Los Angeles, CA.



He attended Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas with a BFA in Theatre Arts, London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), and The Film Actors Lab in Dallas, Texas studying under Adam Roarke and Spencer Milligan.

Jennings has performed in over 50 film and television roles, and over 100 stage productions nationally and in the UK. He also performed in over 6000 performances with the nationally touring sketch comedy troupe, "The Gunfighters", which he co-founded in 1975.[1]

He has the dubious distinction of having portrayed Adolf Hitler twice: once on the TV soap Passions and in David Zucker's 2008 comedy film An American Carol.

In 2009, he became a series regular in the hit comedy web series Safety Geeks: SVI playing the role of Hopkins, a droll English butler. The series also stars Brittney Powell, Dave Beeler, Tom Konkle, and Mary Cseh.

Jennings is currently a member of the SkyPilot Theatre Company in Los Angeles.

He is the youngest son of William Bryan Jennings who played the cop in the 1966 cult film favorite, Manos: the Hands of Fate.[2][3]

He is the founder of the Living History organization, 93rd Sutherland Highland Regiment of Foot Living History Unit, organized in 1989.[4]
