Caleb Landry Jones      

Actor Known for "X-Men: First Class" and "The Last Exorcism"

Caleb Landry Jones was born in Garland, Texas on 7 December 1989.

As a child, his family relocated to the nearby city of Richardson, where he would later meet Robert Hudson and form the experimental folk rock band, Robert Jones.

After finding some success as an actor, having appeared as recurring character Jimmy Adler in Friday Night Lights and starred as Caleb Sweetzer in Daniel Stamm's "The Last Exorcism," a performance praised by the New York Times, Caleb relocated to Los Angeles to further pursue his career in film.

Caleb went on to co-star opposite James MacAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult in Fox’s summer blockbuster "X-Men: First Class" and can currently be seen starring opposite Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Giovanni Ribisi and Ben Foster in "Contraband" (Universal), the English-language remake of award-winning Icelandic film "Reykjavic-Rotterdam" - released in January 2012.

More recently, Caleb wrapped filming on "Antiviral," Brandon Cronenberg's directorial debut, in which he stars opposite Sarah Gadon and Malcom McDowell.  Akin to the famous taste of his father, acclaimed director David Cronenberg, "Antiviral" revolves around a salesman (Caleb) for a clinic that replicates celebrities' diseases. He becomes obsessed with a celebrity (Sarah Gadon) and injects himself with her disease, then must figure out how to cure it.

He is currently filming Neil Jordan’s "Byzantium," opposite Saorsie Ronan, Gemma Arterton and Sam Riley, in which Caleb will play a young man dying of leukemia and struggling with his mortality.

One of Hollywood’s emerging young actors, Caleb was featured in the 'Young Hollywood' issues of both VMAN and Teen Vogue.

He continues to produce music as a solo artist and will soon release a vinyl LP of Robert Jones' 'Men and Their Horses.'
