Life and career
Pinkston was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the son of Linda and Mark Pinkston. He is of half Greek descent. Before he became an actor, he was involved in karate competitions, having been inspired by watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He was known in Europe and highly touted for his participation and success in the sport, he gained praise by such organizations as Karate Kidz Online, which was run by former pro wrestler Louis Velazquez. Pinkston appeared on Star Search at the age of twelve and was subsequently a cast member on Ashton Kutcher's MTV show Punk'd. (He bears no relation to Rob Pinkston, another Punk'd alumnus.) He also starred in the sitcom Quintuplets; his older brother, Aaron Pinkston, has made guest appearances on the show. He graduated from River Hill High School in Clarksville, Maryland in 2006.
Full of It opened on March 2, 2007; in the film, he played a high school senior who lies to become popular. The film also premiered on ABC Family on September 16, 2007, and was released on DVD on September 25, 2007. He also appeared in Lionsgate's College in 2008, alongside Drake Bell and Andrew Caldwell. Pinkston's most recent role is in Hannah Montana, which came out in 2008. His role is Connor, a friend of Oliver, and Miley falls for him, but later finds out how short he is and dumps him. His most known role is in Cartoon Network's live-action series Tower Prep, along with Drew Van Acker, Dyana Liu, and Elise Gatien which premiered on October 19, 2010, and was cancelled after only one season, leaving many fans disappointed.
His height has been a popular topic[according to whom?] since his stint in Hannah Montana. Miley Cyrus being 5 ft 5 in and Emily Osment standing at 5 ft 2 1⁄2 in, his height is revealed to be 5 ft 1 in or 155 cm.
