BEN FOSTER BIO

BEN FOSTER

Boston born actor Ben Foster is young, hot, and oh yeah, ridiculously talented. Foster's career began at age 12 when he wrote and acted in his first play after attending the highly acclaimed Interlochen Theater Arts Summer Camp.

Foster then went on to drop out of high school to pursue his love of acting. At the age of 16 he landed roles in two made-for-T.V. movies and a small role in the series "Freaks and Geeks." His big break came when he landed a reoccurring role in the HBO series "Six Feet Under."

Finally, after much persistence, he began making a name for himself starring in heavy dramas like Liberty Heights, Hostage and 3:10 to Yuma. However, Foster's performance in Alpha Dog (opposite Emile Hirsch and Justin Timberlake) brought him major critical acclaim and further confirmed for all of Young Hollywood that Foster is the real deal!

FUN FACTS

Ben's favorite movie is One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Ben was almost set on fire on the set of Hostage when they tried to throw a real Molotov cocktail.

His favorite color is green and his favorite food is pizza.
