Wes Chatham

Wes Chatham was born October 11, 1978 and grew up in North Georgia.  After graduating high school, Wes joined the military.  He worked as an aviation firefighter on the flight deck of the USS Essex, working in crash and salvage for four years.  Wes’ break into acting came just three months before his tour was finished when Denzel Washington chose his ship to shoot the movie Antwone Fisher.  While searching for some authentic military guys for the movie, Wes was discovered by casting director Robi Reed and given his first movie making experience.  That’s when he decided he wanted to pursue his life long dream of acting.

"In the Valley of Elah, from Paul Haggis, who received a Best Picture Academy Award for Crash, enlists three other Oscar winners (Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron and Susan Sarandon) in a story of the war brought home...Special mention to Wes Chatham, who could be Matt Damon's younger, cuter brother, as a soldier testifying to Hank about the killing. The combination of dedicated actors and a superior script helps make Elah a far more satisfying film than Crash."
