About John Hawkes (1959 – )

Born John Marvin Perkins on September 11, 1959, in Alexandria, Minnesota. After graduating from Jefferson High School in Alexandria, John made his way to Austin, where he and several of his out-of-work actor friends formed Big State Productions, a theater group that gave him the chance to write and direct as well as act. The troupe wound up being a critical success, affording the opportunity to perform a show at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, Hawkes began nabbing small parts in features shot in and around Austin, including Dakota (1988), D.O.A. (1988) and Rosalie Goes Shopping (1989).

In 1990, John decided to increase his chances for making the big time and moved to Los Angeles to further his career. In addition to doing supporting turns in a large variety of films, including FLESH AND BONE (1993), FROM DUSK TILL DAWN (1996), and I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, John also did guest work on such long-running TV shows as E.R. and The X-Files.

In 1999, he was cast in one of his first leading roles in "A Slipping-Down Life," a well-received big screen adaptation of Anne Tyler's novel of the same name that also starred Lili Taylor and Guy Pearce.

He next made a memorable impression upon audiences as a slow-witted fisherman in Wolfgang Peterson's equally dim THE PERFECT STORM (2000).

John was cast as Sol Star, a Jewish merchant the critically acclaimed HBO series, Deadwood (2004-06).

After the cancellation of Deadwood, John managed to stay busy, a lot in television but also some films including, AMERICAN GANGSTER (2007), TENDER AS HELLFIRE (2009), and SMALL TOWN SATURDAY NIGHT (2010).

In the year 2010 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 and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male.
