After his performance as Robert Daly in the episode "USS Callister" of the Netflix anthology series Black Mirror (2017), he was nominated for an Emmy for the second time.

Although Plemons' birthplace is Dallas, he spent his childhood in the nearby town of Mart, Texas. His older sister's name is Jill,  and he has one. [time needed]
By participating in a distance learning program through the Texas Tech University Independent School District, Plemons was able to earn his high school diploma in 2007. Before receiving more acting jobs and switching to the online program, he went to school in Mart, where he played football in middle school, junior high, and at Mart High School. 
Career [ edit ]
Career Beginnings: 1991–2006 [ edit ]
To begin his career, Plemons appeared in a Coca-Cola commercial when he was only 3 1 ⁄ 2 years old With the encouragement of his family, he began working extra hours when he was 8 years old and eventually made his way to Los Angeles, where he auditioned for and eventually landed a series of menial jobs. 
Children on their Birthdays (2002) was the first major role for Jesse Plemons, who had previously appeared in Varsity Blues (1999) and All the Pretty Horses (2000) and made guest appearances on Walker, Texas Ranger and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Between 2003 and 2006, he had recurring or guest-starring roles on Judging Amy, The Lyon's Den, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and Grey's Anatomy. 
Achieved Peak Success with Friday Night Lights from 2006-2011 [ edit ]
Plemons, then 18 years old, joined the ensemble cast of the NBC drama Friday Night Lights in 2006. The series, set in the fictional Texas town of Dillon, Texas, centers on the high school football team of that name. His character, Landry Clarke, was a comedic relief in the first season as the best friend of football quarterback Matt Saracen. The cast and crew joked that even though his character did not play football, Jesse Plemons was the best player in the cast. 
After the first season, Landry joined the Panthers football team, and director Jeffrey Reiner was told by Plemons, who had played high school football, that he would do his own stunts. Landry "got the crap beat out of [him] over and over and over again" in his first football scene (see ). Plemons' chin split open and she needed eleven stitches after being hit by Taylor Kitsch (Tim Riggins) during filming. Favored by viewers and reviewers alike, the show was canceled after five seasons when it was moved to DirecTV in 2011. 
Battleship (2012) saw Plemons reuniting with Kitsch and Friday Night Lights director Peter Berg. When asked why he cast Kitsch and Plemons together, director Peter Berg said, "I know that he's really good for Taylor and he makes Taylor better." So I composed the entire section especially for Jesse. Not once did I consider it a Friday Night Lights reunion. My rationale was that having a reliable relative present would provide some measure of safety. "
From 2011 onward, we have seen the release of groundbreaking television shows like Breaking Bad and films like Fargo. [ edit ]
Plemons played the villainous Todd Alquist in the final two seasons of the AMC drama Breaking Bad, which aired in 2012 and 2013. Season 5A saw him in reoccurring role, and Season 5B will find him as a series regular . Plemons was given the fan-favorite moniker "Meth Damon" by Breaking Bad devotees  because of the striking resemblance between him and actor Matt Damon. When he was just 12 years old, he played the young version of Matt Damon's character in the film All the Pretty Horses (2000). 
The Master (2012), directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, featured Plemons in a supporting role as the son of Philip Seymour Hoffman's character, an actor to whom he has been physically compared.

Black Mass, a 2015 mob film starring Johnny Depp and featuring Jesse Plemons as mobsters Kevin Weeks, was released in September. Both Bridge of Spies (directed by Steven Spielberg) and Stephen Frears' The Program (about Lance Armstrong) starred him that same year.
Late in 2015, Plemons appeared as a co-star in the second season of the television series Fargo. He played the butcher husband of Peggy Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst), Ed Blumquist.

As a result of the positive reception his performance received, Plemons was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. Plemons appeared in two films this year, the comedy Game Night and Adam McKay's biopic Vice, in which he narrated. In 2019, he appeared as a supporting character in Martin Scorsese's crime drama The Irishman, which had its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on September 27.
