Taylor Kitsch stars in "Battleship," opposite Alexander Skarsgård and Rihanna, as Lieutenant Alex Hopper, and "Savages." Directed by Oliver Stone, the latter film tells the daunting story of a fight against Mexican drug cartels. Kitsch stars alongside the riveting Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro, and plays one of the parts in a love triangle that becomes endangered when the threat of the cartels becomes all too personal.

starred in the title role of Disney's 2012 live-action film "John Carter," a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars), which was released on March 9, 2012. Based on the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs and directed by two-time Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton ("Wall-E," "Finding Nemo"), Kitsch plays John Carter, who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions among the inhabitants of the planet, which include Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter discovers that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

Kitsch was recently seen on the big screen in Steven Silver's "The Bang Bang Club." Starring as Kevin Carter, Kitsch played one of four young photojournalists whose graphic images drew the world's attention to the last stages of apartheid in South Africa. Based on a true story, this gripping drama portrays the stresses, tensions and moral dilemmas of working in situations of extreme conflict. The film premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and was screened on April 21 at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. Its theatrical release was on the following day, Friday, April 22, 2011.

On television, Taylor Kitsch starred as Tim Riggins, Dillon High School's running back and teammate Brian "Smash" William's arch-rival, in all five seasons of NBC's critically acclaimed sports drama "Friday Night Lights."

During one of the series' summer hiatuses, the prolific actor filmed the 2008 feature "Gospel Hill," alongside Julia Stiles, Danny Glover, Angela Bassett and Samuel L. Jackson. Directed by actor/director Giancarlo Esposito, the story focuses on a bigoted former sheriff of a Southern town and a civil-rights worker whose intersecting lives are still haunted by events that took place decades before.

Kitsch, who grew up in British Columbia, Canada, began his career in 2002, when he moved to New York to study with renowned acting coach Sheila Grey. He landed his first major feature film back on familiar ground (Vancouver) the very next year in David R. Ellis' cult classic "Snakes on a Plane," starring Samuel L. Jackson.

Kitsch's additional feature film credits include Renny Harlin's horror flick "The Covenant," Betty Thomas' comedy "John Tucker Must Die," and Gavin Hood's 2009 sci-fi action-adventure, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," in which he starred as Gambit alongside Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds and his "John Carter" co-star, Lynn Collins.
