Mini Bio (1)

Oren, who was recently voted Hollywood's Hottie by Pop Star! magazine landed his first job at only nine-months-old in an ad for Broadway Department Stores. Now a professional model at FORD, Oren has booked spots for Sears, Warner Brothers, Tommy Hillfiger, Macy's, Bugle Boy, Mercedes-Benz, and for Sean Combs's Sean John Boys, clothing line in a wonderful homage to "The Greatest", Muhammad Ali. He has also lent his talents in several national commercials including three for McDonalds, Dunkin' Donuts, Kinkos, Montgomery Wards and Adidas.

From the small screen to the big screen, Oren is a versatile, energetic actor who masters everything he puts his mind to. Oren has already accomplished a lifetime of achievements. This whiz kid, who wants to become a doctor someday and play in the NBA, excels in basketball, having earned over 55 trophies including competing nationally in AAU's Jr. Olympics and Michael Jordan's Basketball Camp where he made The All-Star team.

At age two and a half, Oren began reading scripts over his father's shoulders and, at five, had already co-starred on the critically acclaimed ER (1994) on NBC. Other television credits include Sci-Fi's Sliders (1995), City of Angels (2000) on CBS, FX's The Shield (2002), Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show (1999), a recurring role in the Lifetime original series Any Day Now (1998) and a recurring role on WB's For Your Love (1998). A memorable moment in Oren's career was starring alongside Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr. as his grandson "Henry" in For Love of Olivia (2001), a CBS television movie. His electrifying recurring portrayal of "Raymond", Dr Wilkes' (Rocky Carroll) asthmatic son on CBS' Chicago Hope (1994), earned Oren a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Supporting Young Actor in a Prime Time Drama. In 2003, Oren once again won the chance to guest star on NBC's ER (1994) as a troubled son who watched his dad die, not once, but twice. He has since gone on to gust star on Lincoln Heights (2006) as a wanna-be gang member who gets caught up in a drive-by shooting. This season, Oren can be seen recurring on CBS's crime drama Cold Case (2003) as a kid who continues to bump heads with the neighborhood cop.

After co-starring in Ice Cube's feature film The Players Club (1998) as "Jamal", LisaRaye McCoy's adorable son, Oren has since had the opportunity to work with Whoopi Goldberg and Jada Pinkett Smith in the film Kingdom Come (2001) and opposite Duane Martin and Vivica A. Fox in Ride or Die (2003) (aka "Hustle and Heat"). Oren also has lent his voice talents in Clifford's Really Big Movie (2004) as the voice of "Charley", co-starring John Goodman and the late John Ritter. But it was his lead role in Twentieth Century Fox's family movie Rebound (2005) where Oren lit up the screen. Williams plays "Keith Ellis", a handsome, ball-handling point guard who doesn't always see eye to eye with the new hot-tempered "Coach Roy", played by Martin Lawrence. Oren once again got to combine his two passions, acting and basketball, this time for the big screen.

Oren is having a blast. His next goal...? He's working on bringing his own television show to the small screen and soon will be recording his own CD!
