Jesse Plemons has had a prolific career in film and television for the past two decades. Bouncing around episodic television in shows like “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” the actor got his big break when he was cast as Landry Clarke in “Friday Night Lights.” The NBC series follows the trials and tribulations of a small-town football team in Dillon, Texas, and is known for its emotional stakes that don’t require extensive football knowledge. Plemons’ performance on the show made him a talent to look out for.
The “Breaking Bad” actor continued to find more and more impressive roles after Todd, including the Oscar-nominated film “The Power of the Dog,” where he stars alongside his real-life wife, Kirsten Dunst. The Jane Campion-directed period piece uses the Western genre to explore toxic masculinity. Plemons was also cast as Tom White in Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Once again, this will be another impressive feature in Plemons’ filmography as the highly anticipated film is based on a true crime story and the book of the same name. His habit of finding complex characters and even more nuanced subject matter hints that he will continue to enjoy a versatile career for years to come.
