Anton Yelchin

Anton Viktorovich Yelchin (Russian Антон Викторович Ельчин; born March 11, 1989) is an American film and television actor. He began performing in the late 1990s, appearing in several television roles, as well as the Hollywood films Along Came a Spider and Hearts in Atlantis. More recently, Yelchin appeared on the television series Huff and starred in the films House of D, Alpha Dog, Charlie Bartlett and the upcoming films Star Trek and Terminator Salvation.

In 2007, Yelchin starred in Alpha Dog, a crime thriller that received a U.S. release on January 12. In the film, he played Zack Mazursky, who is based on real-life kidnap and murder victim Nicholas Markowitz. USA Today's review described the performance as "heartbreakingly endearing". Yelchin felt awkward appearing in the swimming pool-set sexual scene in the film, specifying that he felt "uncomfortable" for his co-stars and that he could not "imagine enjoying it or taking pleasure" in filming the scene.

He will next appear in You and I, which was filmed in Moscow during the summer of 2007, Middle of Nowhere, opposite Susan Sarandon and Justin Chatwin, and the eleventh Star Trek film, in which he will portray Pavel Chekov.
