When Sumpter was 11, he entered International Modeling and Talent Association and started his modeling in Kentucky. He also won Pre-Teen Male Model of the Year, where he signed with Mark Robert as his personal manager. Sumpter then decided to move back to Los Angeles, California with his family and start acting afterwards.

Sumpter’s first movie role was in the 2001 film Frailty as the young Adam Mieks seen in flashbacks. Sumpter received a Saturn Award nomination for “Best Performance by a Younger Actor” for his performance. Following that, he appeared with Danny Glover in the Showtime film Just a Dream, for which he received a Young Artist Award for “Best Performance in a TV Movie, Mini-Series or Special – Leading Young Actor”. His next film was Local Boys, a family surfing drama, with Mark Harmon and Eric Christian Olsen.

In July 2002, at age 13, Sumpter was selected for the role of Peter Pan. Sumpter did nearly all of his stunts for the film himself. To prepare, he says he practiced sword fighting as much as five hours a day, as well as training in gymnastics and lifting weights. He was working with actress Rachel Hurd-Wood and built a strong relationship with her .While filming in Australia, he supplemented his training with cricket and surfing. Sumpter grew several inches while in the film’s production, requiring staging tricks to retain Captain Hook’s height advantage over Peter in face-to-face scenes late in the process. Producer Lucy Fisher also said that, “The window he flies out of had to be enlarged twice.” Sumpter won both a Saturn and Young Artist Award for the film.

In the fall of 2004 he starred in the TV series Clubhouse as a boy who gets his dream job of working as a batboy for a New York City major league baseball team. The series was canceled by CBS after five episodes; all 11 episodes made have since been broadcast on cable/satellite channels. He then starred in Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life, a Lifetime Channel movie about a popular teenager whose life is ruined by an addiction to internet pornography.

Sumpter spent the summer of 2005 in Oregon filming the teen comedy The Sasquatch Gang (a.k.a. The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang), released in November 2006. He had a small role in the film An American Crime, which played on Showtime in 2008 before going to DVD. He appeared in an episode of CSI: Miami as the boyfriend of a girl whose parents are murdered.

He completed filming roles in the coming-of-age comedy Calvin Marshall, the family comedy You’re So Cupid, Soul Surfer and Death and Cremation.

Sumpter was a co-host on The YOBI Show, an online reality contest show, with Danielle Ryan.

He appeared in the meteorological disaster film Into the Storm as Jacob Hodges, a young cameraman for the stormchasers.
