Caleb Landry Jones (born December 7, 1989) is an American actor and musician, best known for his roles as Banshee in X-Men: First Class (2011), Jeremy Armitage in Get Out (2017), and Red Welby in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017).
Jones was born in Garland, Texas, the son of Patrick and Cindy Jones. As a child, his family relocated to the nearby city of Richardson, where he was raised, and where he later met Robert Hudson and formed the experimental folk rock band, Robert Jones. After finding some success as an actor, Jones relocated to Los Angeles to further pursue his career in film.
After some small, sometimes uncredited roles in such popular films as No Country for Old Men and Superbad, Jones began to receive work in television, appearing in Friday Night Lights as Jimmy Adler and in Breaking Bad as Louis. Jones then had supporting roles in The Last Exorcism, released in 2010, and X-Men: First Class, released in 2011. The following year saw the release of Contraband, the English-language remake of award-winning Icelandic film Reykjavic-Rotterdam, and Byzantium, both of which featured Jones in supporting roles. That year, he had his first starring role in Antiviral, the feature-film debut from writer-director Brandon Cronenberg, the son of renowned Canadian horror director David Cronenberg.
Jones has continued to appear in supporting roles in both independent and mainstream films. In 2017, he appeared in The Florida Project, Get Out and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. All three films received nominations at the 90th Academy Awards; the latter two films were both nominated for Best Picture.
