PETER SARSGAARD (Dwight) is an actor noted for his range and ability to access what is behind the often complicated facades of the characters he plays. He made his screen debut in 1995 with Tim Robbins’ DEAD MAN WALKING, and then started gracing the art-house circuit, making a violent, searing impression as a homophobic killer in BOYS DON'T CRY starring two-time Oscar®-winner Hilary Swank as a trans-gendered teen. Other impressionable offbeat roles for Peter that have thrilled critics include SHATTERED GLASS, which earned him a slew of awards including the prestigious National Society of Film Critics Award, as well as GARDEN STATE and KINSEY.

Peter achieved mainstream success with roles in JARHEAD, FLIGHT PLAN, AN EDUCATION and GREEN LANTERN, and will next star in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s LOVELACE opposite Amanda Seyfried which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. He most recently wrapped production on Kelly Reichardt's NIGHT MOVES, in which he'll appear opposite Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. He currently resides in Brooklyn along with his wife Maggie Gyllenhaal and their two daughters.
