Paul Eenhoorn (“This Is Martin Bonner”)

Why You May Know Him: Seattle based Australian actor Paul Eenhoorn has been making a name for himself in his city’s filmmaking industry for the better part of the past decade, after trying to make a break for it in his native country. He’s likely best known for playing the villain, Mr. Daniels, in the family comedy “Max Rules” which was voted by audiences as the top U.S. film at the 2004 Seattle International Film Festival. Eenhoorn may also be recognised by video gamers for modelling as the face for “Half-Life 2″‘s Arne Magnusson.

What Sundance Could Mean For Him: A whole lot. As the oldest actor on this list, Eenhoorn may very well be the middle-aged breakout of this year’s festival thanks to his grounded turn in the affecting indie, “This Is Martin Bonner.” In the drama, he plays the titular character; a man who leaves his old life behind and relocates to Reno, where he finds work helping released prisoners transition to life on the outside, while trying his hand at speed dating and passing time as a soccer referee on weekends.

What’s Next: Eenhoorn told Indiewire that he recently got cast in “The Dead Men,” a “small indie film that’s going to shoot out in the desert in California, about a journalist who gets taken hostage in Iraq.”
