Jesse Lon Plemons (born April 2, 1988 in Dallas, Texas) is an American actor. Although he's been acting since he was a child, he came to more prominence as Landry Clarke in NBC's critically-acclaimed drama Friday Night Lights. He's since become more well-known for his portrayal of Todd Alquist in Breaking Bad and Ed Blomquist in Fargo.

He's famous for his rather uncanny resemblance to actor Matt Damon, leading to many fans jokingly nicknaming his character in Breaking Bad "Meth Damon". Funnily enough: when he was 12 years old, he actually did play Matt Damon's character as a child in a flashback sequence in All the Pretty Horses, which was deleted from the theatrical cut.

In 2017 he became engaged to Kirsten Dunst, his co-star on Fargo, and they have two kids together. They were both nominated for Best Supporting Oscars for The Power of the Dog.
