Jesse Plemons started acting at age three. His first job was a Coke commercial booked during an open casting call in Texas. The role required two things - a cowboy hat and the ability to work a lasso; he had both. Plemons has been acting ever since. Though his cowboy qualities landed him his first gig he spent much of his life trying to lose his accent as casting directors didn't take to it kindly. After years of working to lose the accent and nearly leaving his home town of Mart, Texas for Los Angeles he received a role on Friday Night Lights. Based in Austin, Plemons is able to stay in Texas and keep his accent.
Plemons also earned critical praise for his appearance on Grey's Anatomy portraying a young teen struggling to accept his facial disfigurement. In addition to television, Plemons has appeared in many movie roles.
