Born April 2, 1988 in Dallas, Texas, Jesse Plemons rose to fame for his role as Landry Clarke on the NBC drama Friday Night Lights. He appeared on all five seasons of the critically acclaimed series. After wrapping up the football drama, Plemons joined the cast of AMC’s Breaking Bad as villain Todd Alquist for the fifth and final season.
In late 2015, Plemons met Kirsten Dunst on the set of FX’s Fargo TV series. Us Weekly confirmed in January 2017 that the twosome were engaged. A year later, Dunst gave birth to the couple’s first child, a son named Ennis, in May 2018. The pair expanded their family in April 2021 with the arrival of son James. That same year, the duo costarred in The Power of the Dog, which earned them each an Oscar nod.
Dunst told Us in August 2019 that the pair plan to wed “eventually” in a small ceremony at home. A rep for Dunst confirmed to Us in July 2022 that she and Plemons had wed after six years together.
