Ben Foster is an American actor who has made it large in the entertainment industry. His parents owned a restaurant with his father Steven Foster and Gillian Kirwan as his mother. Looking at the rest of the family, you would say that they were born to take on the entertainment industry. His brother Jon Foster is also an actor and has also featured in movies that you would be familiar with. Benjamin has been raised with a Jewish religious background. Though he dropped out with the aim of seeking a career as an actor, he later joined the Maharishi University of Management. Over the years, he has moved from being just an actor into also a producer. Even at this, he has not let go of his passion as an actor.

More into his personal life, Ben has been in a relationship with Robin Wright who is also an actor. They went as far as announcing their engagement in early 2014. This did not work out so well and later in the year, they announced that their engagement is off.

He has starred in both films and television series. Born on October 29th 1980, he started his career in his teens (sixteen to be precise). Some of his major television series include Six Feet Under as well movies such as Alpha Dog. Other films and series include The Laramie Project, Liberty Heights, Get Over It, Hostage, 30 Days OF Night, The Messenger, Bang Bang, Contraband, and Lone Survivor.

As a young teenage seeking to make it in the entertainment, industry despite dropping out of high school to pursue his career received a rather positive reception. In the year 1996- 1997, he was featured in the television series Flash Forward. Over a period of three years after this, he managed to take on a few episodes on a television series Freaks and Geeks in the years 1999-2000. On Flash Forward he played the role of Tucker “Tuck” James in a total of 26 episodes while he played Eli on Freaks and Geeks on two episodes. These two films have placed Ben on the map and are worth looking at in detail.

Ben has worked for Disney production in the Disney TV program Flash Forward. He acts as a 13 year old in the 8th grade. He looks at this like it is one of the largest events in his life as a teen that will leave a long-term mark. His best friend Becker tries to make it simpler by being there for each other. Ben Foster taking on the role of Tucker is characterized to have a sense of humour. He also rebounds pretty well from bullied in school and his rather complicated parents. With a best friend like Becca Fisher they have been best of friends since childhood and they get through everything together. He represents the life of a teenage at its best with all present challenges. Ben was nominated for Gemini Awards for the best performance in a child’s Program in two episodes of this series in the year 1997 and the same also in the 1998.

Freaks and Geeks is classified as a teen comedy-drama television series. Ben Foster takes the role of Eli and plays this role on only two episodes. Though he was not nominated for any awards on this series, he did leave a mark on them. It is one of his shortest series appearance but it was worth it. He acted as one of the other students and did not take a lead role on this series.

He has taken home an Emmy Award with the film, Bang Bang You’re Dead where he played a high school misfit. He is currently a film producer and he is working on making it big. Ben Foster started off small and has grown in the industry. His passion did not let his ego take the best of him. In this, he did not ignore roles that did not take him as the key actor. As a producer, he has managed to also bring out his talent by displaying three-dimensional characters as well as complex ones who have differing personalities. His career as a produce is still young but he is quite promising.
