Young Forrest Gump: Now

Michael Conner Humphreys followed in his onscreen character's footsteps and joined the Army in 2005. Michael served until his term ran up in 2008, which included a tour in Iraq. When he left the Army in 2008, Michael said he was still going to school at the University of North Alabama but also wanted to pursue acting. He didn't land many roles since leaving the Army, but he did get a role in 2011's Pathfinders: In the Company of Strangers and scored a bit part in a Norwegian commercial that went viral back in 2010!
