|Tye Sheridan (Gary Jones)|
Apart from a few school plays, 15-year-old TYE SHERIDAN (Gary Jones) had almost no acting experience when he was cast in Terrance Malick’s TREE OF LIFE. Since then he has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most sought after young talents.
Sheridan was most recently seen in Jeff Nichol’s upcoming film MUD opposite Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. He stars as a Mississippi River teenager who befriends a fugitive (Matthew McConaughey) trying to reunite with his troubled soul mate (Reese Witherspoon). His first appearance on screen was in Terrence Malick’s THE TREE OF LIFE where he starred alongside Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain. Tye plays the sensitive youngest son to Chastain and Pitt in this breathtaking film about growing up with a disciplinarian father. THE TREE OF LIFE won the 2011 Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, the 2011 Gotham Award for Best Picture, and three Academy Award® nominations. Tye was featured in indieWIRE’s “Top twenty-five Filmmaker and Actors” of 2011.
