Wes Chatham was discovered by chance at the age of five when his mother took his sister to an audition in Savannah, Georgia. While waiting in the lobby, a casting director noticed him and offered him a national campaign for Tide. While taking classes at the Gift Center in Lawrencville, GA, a professional theater company out of Atlanta started a mentoring program with the school and Wes was chosen to write a play that was later performed by his classmates. It was this experience with the theater that Wes found his passion for the arts.After school, he joined the military as an aviation firefighter on the flight deck of the USS Essex, working in crash and salvage for four years. Wes's first break came just three months before his tour was finished when Denzel Washington chose his ship to shoot the movie 'Antwone Fisher'. While searching for authentic military servicemen for the movie, casting director Robi Reed found Wes and gave him his first movie-making experience. Following 'Antwone Fisher', Robi convinced Wes to make the move to Hollywood and shortly thereafter cast him in his first series regular role on Showtime's 'Barbershop'.Wes began to garner attention when Paul Haggis cast him alongside Tommy Lee Jones as 'Corporal Steve Penning' in 'In the Valley of Elah'. Since then he has worked with Oliver Stone in 'W', David Mamet and Shawn Ryan on the CBS series 'The Unit', and was part of the SAG Award-winning ensemble cast of DreamWorks 'The Help'.Wes just finished his first starring role in Joel Silver's 'The Philly Kid' and will next be seen on a pilot for FX called 'Powers' with Jason Patric and Lucy Punch.
