Elden Henson

A working actor since age three, Elden Henson, who was variously billed as Elden Ratliff and Elden Ryan Ratliff, spent much of his life in the public eye. Previously a model, he made his film debut as a ring bearer in the romantic comedy "A Little Sex" (1981) and followed with small roles in two Sidney Lumet films, "The Verdict" (1982) and "Daniel" (1983). At age five, already a film veteran, Henson attempted television, with a regular role on the CBS daytime drama "As The World Turns." Guest starring roles on NBC's "Amazing Stories" (1985) and "Highway to Heaven" (1987) followed. He would next be seen on the small screen in the miniseries "Elvis and Me" (ABC, 1988), playing a character at age seven, that his older brother Erick portrayed at age ten. The round-faced, blondish and slightly chubby Henson had his first substantial film role in 1989's cop/dog buddy film "Turner & Hooch." More memorable was his work as Fulton Reed in Disney's "The Mighty Ducks" (1992), a film co-starring his younger brother Garrette. Noticed after a puck he hits breaks the hockey coach's car window, Fulton has to learn to skate to join the Ducks, and then becomes the team's enforcer and protector. He reprised this role for the popular 1994 and 1996 sequels. Big with the small set, "The Mighty Ducks" trilogy won Henson both fans and recognition, and helped to pave the way for larger roles. 1998 saw the young actor take a co-starring role, playing physically oversized but emotionally underdeveloped Max in "The Mighty," opposite Kieran Culkin's thoughtful and disabled Kevin. Henson re-teamed with Culkin in the teen ensemble comedy "She's All That" (1999), featured as the best friend of Rachael Leigh Cook's character Laney, while Culkin played Laney's younger brother. With the onslaught of teen-themed features came more work for Henson, who could next be seen featured alongside Devon Sawa and Seth Green in "Idle Hands," a 1999 horror-comedy. That same year he lensed the "Othello" update "O" (2001), starring Mekhi Phifer as the lead Odin, and Josh Hartnett as his friend and nemesis Hugo. In addition to acting, Henson has shown an interest in writing and directing, having worked on a number of amateur short films and written several scripts. Henson played one of the canny foursome trying to cheat their way through high school in the 2002 comedy "Cheats" and had a small role in the comedy prequel "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd" (2003) before a major appearance in the second "Project Greenlight" feature "The Battle of Shaker Heights" (2003) as Bart, the best friend of Kelly (Shia LaBeouf) who finds their relationship strained when Kelly's goes after Bart's sister (Amy Smart). Henson continued finding work as a character actor as he aged out of his teen years, appearing in Catherine Hardwicke's skateboard drama "Lords of Dogtown" (2005) and the climax of the young adult series "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" (2014) and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" (2015). He next co-starred as Franklin "Foggy" Nelson in the Marvel Comics series "Daredevil" (Netflix 2015-), a rose he reprised in companion series "The Defenders" (Netflix 2017).
