Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

He may be known for playing pitch-perfect Americans in films like "Public Enemies" (2009), "Lawless" (2012) and "Zero Dark Thirty" (2012). However, to those that have watched him on screen in the United States, the fact that Jason Clarke was born and raised on a sheep farm in Queensland, Australia may come as somewhat of a shock. Known for being that rare form of actor who completely absorbs the characters he's playing, Clarke spends hours on end listening to real people talking in an effort to mask his Australian accent, and fully encapsulate his various on-screen personas. And it would appear that the hard work has paid off. Since 2012 Clarke has appeared in several of Hollywood's highest-profile movies, including the Academy Award-winning "Zero Dark Thirty," and director Baz Luhrmann's star-studded period drama, "The Great Gatsby" (2013), quickly establishing himself as one of Hollywood's most in-demand character actors.
