TAYLOR KITSCH (John Carter) kick-started his career in 2002
when he moved to New York to study with renowned acting coach Sheila Grey. He
landed his first major feature film the following year and has worked
consistently in film and television ever since.
Perhaps best known for his part in NBC's critically acclaimed television
series "Friday Night Lights," Kitsch brings poignancy and vulnerability to the
role of Tim Riggins, a 5
Texas high school fallback struggling to find his identity and wresting his
demons by way of the bottle.
During the show's first summer hiatus, Taylor filmed the feature, "Gospel
Hill," alongside Julia Stiles, Danny Glover, Angela Bassett and Samuel L.
Jackson. Directed by Giancarlo Esposito, the film focuses on the bigoted former
sheriff of a southern town and a one-time civil rights worker whose intersecting
lives are still haunted by events that took place decades before.
Most recently, Kitsch starred in Steven Silver's "The Bang Bang Club,"
portraying Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Kevin Carter, whose work in
South Africa helps to bring about the fall of apartheid.
Other feature film credits include: Renny Harlin's horror flick "The
Covenant," Richard Ellis' cult classic "Snakes on a Plane," Betty Thomas' comedy
"John Tucker Must Die," and most significantly, starring as Gambit in Gavin
Hood's 2009 sci-fi action adventure, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," alongside Hugh Jackman and
"John Carter" co-star Lynn Collins.
