BEN FOSTER continues to establish himself as one of the most versatile actors of
his generation. His television work includes the cult hit Freaks and Geeks as
the mentally handicapped student Eli, and in Six Feet Under as Russell, the
bi-sexual art school boyfriend of Claire Fischer.
In 2007, Foster had a starring
role in Nick Cassavettes' Alpha Dog as a crystal meth-addicted skinhead. In
2008, he impressed audiences and critics alike with his inspired portrayal of
outlaw Charlie Prince in James Mangold's 3:10 To Yuma. In 2009, he starred
opposite Woody Harrelson and Samantha Morton in Oren Moverman's critically
acclaimed The Messenger.
2011 saw two new and completely diverse Ben Foster film performances, The
Mechanic, a remake of the Charles Bronson classic, and the Sundance Film
Festival Premiere of Here, from director Braden King. Here is the first feature
length, English language American film to be shot entirely in Armenia.
Foster recently completed shooting Rampart, reuniting him with the team of
writer/director Oren Moverman and actor Woody Harrelson, (which also marks
Foster's debut as a film producer) and Contraband opposite Mark Wahlberg for
Foster lives in New York, and is the older brother of actor Jon Foster.
