BEN IS BACK

LUCAS HEDGES (Ben) is an Academy Award nominee and one of Hollywood's most promising young actors. He continues to grow his diverse body of work by collaborating with some of the most respected names in entertainment. Hedges is perhaps best known for his turn opposite Casey Affleck in Kenneth Lonergan's Academy Award winner Manchester by the Sea. Hedges' performance was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in addition to Gotham, Critics' Choice and Independent Spirit bids in that category. Hedges won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Young Actor as well as the National Board of Review's Male Breakthrough Performance of the Year.

The actor will next be seen opposite Katherine Waterston in Jonah Hill's directorial debut, Mid90s, the story of a boy growing up in Los Angeles during that point in time. This fall Hedges stars in Joel Edgerton's Boy Erased, which the filmmaker adapted from Garrard Conley's memoir. The film concerns the son of a Baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion therapy program. Hedges stars alongside Edgerton, Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman. Hedges was recently seen in two of last year's Best Picture nominees:

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird, with Saoirse Ronan, and Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, opposite Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell. Previously, Hedges appeared in two films for Wes Anderson: Moonrise Kingdom, co-starring Edward Norton, Bill Murray and Frances McDormand; and The Grand Budapest Hotel, with Ralph Fiennes. In 2013 he worked with Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet in Jason Reitman's Labor Day and starred opposite Christoph Waltz in Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem. Hedges has also appeared in such films as Michael Cuesta's Kill the Messenger, opposite Jeremy Renner, and Dante Ariola's Arthur Newman, alongside Colin Firth and Emily Blunt.

Hedges is making his Broadway debut alongside Elaine May, Joan Allen and Michael Cera in Kenneth Lonergan's "The Waverly Gallery," at the John Golden Theatre. In 2017 he made his stage debut as the lead in MCC Theater's Off Broadway production of "Yen," written by Anna Jordan and directed by Trip Cullman. The actor currently resides in New York City.
