Peter Sarsgaard stars in "Green Lantern" as the villain Hector Hammond. Sarsgaard also recently starred in "Knight and Day," opposite Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, as Fitzgerald.

An actor noted for his range and ability to access what is behind the often complicated facades of the characters he plays, Peter Sarsgaard continues to add to his burgeoning reputation.

Sarsgaard was recently seen in Lone Scherfig's "An Education," a coming of age story about a 17-year-old girl living in the quiet London suburbs whose future is compromised by a dangerously charming 35-year-old Brit, played by Sarsgaard. The film co-stars Dominic Cooper, Emma Thompson, Alfred Molina and Carey Mulligan and won the 2010 Independent Spirit Award for Best Foreign Film.

Past film credits include Jaume Collet-Serra's "Orphan" opposite Vera Farmiga, Isabel Coixet's "Elegy" co-starring Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz, Rawson Marshall Thurber's "The Mysteries Of Pittsburgh" opposite Sienna Miller, Betrand Tavernier's In "The Electric Mist" co-starring Tommy Lee Jones and Gavin Hood's "Rendition," co-starring Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal.

In 2004, Sarsgaard co-starred to much critical acclaim in the biopic "Kinsey" written and directed by Bill Condon, starring Liam Neeson and Laura Linney. Sarsgaard played Kinsey's young protege and earned a Critics' Choice Award nomination and an Independent Spirit Award nomination for his supporting role. Sarsgaard also received numerous accolades for his portrayal of "New Republic" editor Charles Lane in Billy Ray's "Shattered Glass." For his performance, Sarsgaard garnered awards from the Boston, San Francisco, St Louis, Toronto and National Society of Film Critics, as well as Golden Globe and Spirit Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor.

Sarsgaard first received wide acclaim for his role as John Lotter, the tormenter and rapist in Kimberly Peirce's' "Boys Don't Cry." Starring opposite Hilary Swank and Chloë Sevigny, Sarsgaard received critical praise for his searing portrayal of the violent ex-con ill-equipped to deal with a startling discovery. Other film credits include: "Year Of The Dog" directed by Mike White and co-starring John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon; "Jarhead" directed by Sam Mendes starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Jamie Foxx; "Flightplan" opposite Jodie Foster; "The Dying Gaul" opposite Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott; "Garden State" opposite Zach Braff and Natalie Portman; "K-19: The Widowmaker" opposite Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson, and "Skeleton Key" with Kate Hudson and Gena Rowlands.

Sarsgaard appeared in a critically acclaimed, back-to-back Chekov run opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal off-Broadway in "Uncle Vanya" and opposite Kristin Scott Thomas and Carey Mulligan on Broadway in "The Seagull."

Sarsgaard attended the Actors' Studio Program at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, after which he was cast in Horton Foote's "Laura Dennis" at the Signature Theatre Company off-Broadway.
