PETER SARSGAARD (Dwight) is an actor noted for his range and ability to access what is
behind the often complicated facades of the characters he plays. He made his screen debut in
1995 with Tim Robbins' DEAD MAN WALKING, and then started gracing the art-house
circuit, making a violent, searing impression as a homophobic killer in BOYS DON'T CRY
starring two-time Oscar -winner Hilary Swank as a trans-gendered teen. Other impressionable
offbeat roles for Peter that have thrilled critics include SHATTERED GLASS, which earned him
a slew of awards including the prestigious National Society of Film Critics Award, as well as
GARDEN STATE and KINSEY.
Peter achieved mainstream success with roles in JARHEAD, FLIGHT PLAN, AN
EDUCATION and GREEN LANTERN, and will next star in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey
Friedman's LOVELACE opposite Amanda Seyfried which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film
Festival. He most recently wrapped production on Kelly Reichardt's NIGHT MOVES, in which
he'll appear opposite Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. He currently resides in Brooklyn
along with his wife Maggie Gyllenhaal and their two daughters.
