Career[edit]

Zumwalt began his acting career in 2004, playing a small role in the short film 16w. From then until 2008, he took small roles in low-budget films, television series and video game roles to make a living.

In 2008, Zumwalt was hired by Rockstar Games as a voice actor in their video game Grand Theft Auto IV, playing the role of protagonist Niko Bellic's cousin Roman.
