Caleb Landry Jones
Red-headed Hollywood newcomer Caleb Landry Jones has appeared in several hit television series and films, but audiences worldwide most likely associate him with his portrayal of Sean Cassidy, or "Banshee," in 2011's take on our favorite misunderstood mutants, "X-Men: First Class". A native Texan, Jones's screen debut came in a small role in the 2008 Best Picture Oscar winner "No Country for Old Men". After finding success on two landmark series--AMC's hit drama "Breaking Bad" and NBC's winning adaptation of "Friday Night Lights"--he landed a meaty part in the 2010 found-footage chiller "The Last Exorcism" as Caleb Sweetzer, one of the members of a possessed girl's family. Jones popped up in the quick role of "Fraternity Guy" in David Fincher's Best Picture Oscar nominee "The Social Network" before being cast in Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class". In the film, Banshee is a wisecracking young student enrolled in Professor X's mutant school who possesses a "sonic scream" that causes powerful vibrations. This role led to an even more significant part in Baltasar Kormákur's 2012 thriller "Contraband", starring Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, and Ben Foster. Jones plays Beckinsale's younger brother, who sets off an explosive chain of events by attempting to smuggle drugs on a cargo ship. Jones is also a founding member of the folk rock band Robert Jones, but his on-screen success has caused the band to go on hiatus.
