Early life[edit]

Hawkes was born John Marvin Perkins in Alexandria, Minnesota the son of Patricia Jeanne (née Olson) and Peter John "Pete" Perkins, a farmer of wheat, corn, hogs, and cattle.[1][2][3] He was raised in a "pastoral, small city... a midwest Scandinavian community".[4] Hawkes graduated from Jefferson High School[1] and moved to Austin, Texas, where he was a member of the band Meat Joy, with Gretchen Phillips.[3] He was also a member of the musical group King Straggler with fellow actors Rodney Eastman and Brentley Gore.[3]

Career[edit]

His first film role was in Future-Kill (1985), credited as John Perkins.[5] He changed his stage name to John Hawkes because there was another actor named John Perkins.[6]

Hawkes played the role of Greg Penticoff in season 1 of 24. He portrayed Dustin Powers, brother of protagonist Kenny Powers, all four seasons of the HBO series Eastbound & Down, and played Lennon on ABC's Lost.

His other film roles include Me and You and Everyone We Know, The Perfect Storm, American Gangster, Wristcutters: A Love Story, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and Lincoln.[7]

In 2011, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Winter's Bone, as well as for a number of other awards, including the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. He won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male. Also in 2011, Hawkes was honored with a Rising Star Award by the Texas Film Hall of Fame.[8]
