Preston Michael Corbell (born 23 Jan 1984, Dallas, TX) is an American stuntman[1] and actor[2] He started his career as a teenager working in film and print modeling. He was cast as the bunnyman in Cabin Fever[3][4] and later worked as the long time double for Lucas Scott on the WB/CW drama series One Tree Hill[5]

Corbell has also the double for Kenny Powers[6] for multiple seasons on the HBO hit series Eastbound & Down. In an article in Naluda Magazine talks a about the difficulties of performing stunts[7] stating “You’re ok get back up and run it again.” Obviously sometimes you are not ok, and you need to admit that. But this quote helped me be as a stuntman because we get hurt a lot and face tricky situations so when something happens, I take a breather and saying that quote calms me." In 2015 he began directing independent films such as Ellsworth[8][9] and Rumplestilskin[10]

Early life and education

Corbell attended Texas Tech University to complete a Bachelor of Arts[11], Corbell attended the Wayland Baptist University to complete a Master's Degree in Counseling. He is currently attending California Southern University obtain his Psy.D in Sports Psychology. Corbell was featured on the podcast Mentors Collective where he talked about his education in mental health and how he can use his past knowledge of training as a stuntman and injuries to help other athletes from a former athletes perspective[12]


Corbell has been in the film industry for over 20 years something he talks about in Authority Magazine in depth[13] stating "My career has been full of adventure, danger, pain and learning how to constantly push myself. One story that sticks out was towards the end of my career I was doing a car stunt, something I’ve done many of times before but this time I snapped my finger on the windshield and the bone was sticking out. The worst part was getting it surgically repaired. It took 5 sessions to close the skin fully because the skin kept dying around the injury. It was so painful each time without pain medicine and using only a tourniquet." Corbell has worked as a stuntman[14] double[15] and actor[16] steadily since 2002 on major productions.[17] He also appears regularly as a celebrity guest at comic conventions[18][19]
