He is one of the most-powerful agents in the entertainment industry. His brothers Alec Gores and Tom Gores are both private equity multi-billionaires.
He was born in Nazareth, Israel to parents of Lebanese and Greek descent. The family eventually relocated to Flint, Michigan when Sam was 14 years old. He began working as a butcher when he was 16, and was on his way to a career as a grocer by the time he was 18. He caught the acting bug a few years later, and enrolled in the American Academy of the Dramatic Arts, which had just opened a school on the West Coast. He realized fairly quickly that while he liked performing, he found working behind the scenes to be more interesting. Over the course of the next seven years, he would work for three different agencies, slowly building a positive reputation in Hollywood.
