Wyatt Hawn Russell (born July 10, 1986 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actor and former ice hockey player.

Prior to launching his career in acting, Russell played ice hockey, most notably for the NCAA team of the University of Alabama in Huntsville note  but he sustained injuries that forced him to retire from the sport permanently.

Since pivoting to Hollywood, some of Russell's most well-known projects include an episode of Netflix's Black Mirror ("Playtest"), Richard Linklater's 2016 film Everybody Wants Some!!, the 2018 World War II horror film Overlord, and the 2021 Marvel Cinematic Universe miniseries The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
