Chances are you will be heading to your nearest theater this weekend to catch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Read our review here), and will once again marvel at the brilliance of Jason Clarke. He’s one of those actors that quietly takes on great roles, sometimes lead roles, does a fabulous job and then you don’t hear to much about him after. It’s about that time that this changes and the world takes notice of how great of an actor Jason Clarke is. He’s been in a few films you may know like Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby, White House Down, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Public Enemies, Lawless and Death Race. Here are some facts about him:

1. He was born and raised in Winton, Queensland in Australia.

2. Hi dad was a sheep shearer.

3. He has 3 younger siblings.

4. He attended Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia.
