Tye Sheridan (right) stars with Ben Affleck in The Tender Bar, the latest film by director George Clooney. The film is set to arrive in U.S. theaters December 17 and Amazon Prime Video January 7, 2022.

Born in 1996, the blooming big screen star and Elkhart, Texas, native Tye Sheridan celebrates his 25th birthday this year on November 11. Sheridan began acting at age 11 while still a student in Elkhart schools in southern Anderson County but continued acting and completed his education with tutors on the set until age 16.

Sheridan stars in George Clooney’s latest film The Tender Bar with Ben Affleck, Lily Rabe, and Christopher Lloyd. Sheridan plays the older JR who seeks guidance from father figures in his uncle’s Long Island bar. The coming-of-age film first aired at the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival in October and is set to release in December.

Sheridan’s other recent films include The Card Counter, Voyagers, Wireless, The Night Clerk, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and Ready Player One. He’s come a long way since playing Ellis in Mud with Reese Witherspoon and Longview’s Matthew McConaughey in 2012 and The Tree of Life in 2011 opposite Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and Jessica Chastain.

Sheridan stars in innovative films and works behind the scenes as a producer and industry leader. In 2020 he announced the launch of Wonder Dynamics, a new production platform that uses artificial intelligence to create special effects. He is co-founder with filmmaker and inventor Nikola Todorovic.

Look for Sheridan in The Things They Carried, a new film for 2022 directed by Rupert Sanders and based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book about the Vietnam War era by Tim O’Brien.
