Hedlund is probably best known as Don Billingsley in 2004’s Friday Night Lights, while he brushed up his action chops in Four Brothers opposite Mark Wahlberg. Although he was reportedly on the shortlist for a shot at Captain America, Hedlund will be seen this December in Tron: Legacy, playing Sam, son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), the computer programmer who disappeared into the cyber universe in the original 1982 film. Since most action effects are created in computers anyway these days, we don’t know how much real “action” Hedlund will see -- but hey, that didn’t hurt Sam Worthington.
