Keith and Kevin Schultz (born September 16, 1953) are American identical twin photographers and former actors. Reportedly making their screen debut as infants, the Schultz brothers are perhaps best known for their roles as brothers Jefferson and Fennimore on the ABC western frontier series The Monroes, as well as for Kevin’s role as Tom Sawyer on the NBC live-action/animated series The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. After careers as child actors in front of the camera, the Schultz brothers transitioned to a career working together as professional photographers, best known for their celebrity “head shots” of notable Hollywood child stars.
The Schultz brothers were born Keith Sean Schultz and Kevin Edward Schultz on September 16, 1953 in Santa Monica, California to parents Earl and Evelyn Schultz. The brothers grew up in Hollywood with an older sister, Barbara (born c. 1948) and an older brother, Richard (born c. 1951). According to IMDb, the brothers made their screen debut as infants in the feature film The Long Gray Line, sharing an uncredited role as the infant son of Kitty, played by Betsy Palmer. At age 8, they appeared on the Jan. 15, 1962 episode of the quiz show I’ve Got a Secret, their secret being that they had worked with panelist Palmer as infants. Throughout their childhood, the brothers continued to work as professional child actors, primarily playing twin roles in various commercials, films and television series.
