Taylor Sheridan’s Career
Taylor Sheridan took odd jobs in his university days, like being a handyman and mowing lawns. One day while wandering in a mall, he came across a talent scout who allowed him to be a model but instead, Taylor asked for an acting job.
The talent scout got him a plane ticket and audition for the trip. Taylor Sheridan instead encased his ticket and went to Chicago to the ‘Montgomery Ward’ commercial. Taylor Sheridan dropped out of university after the commercial. He moved to New York, stayed there for a year and relocated to Los Angeles. With minimal recognition in the entertainment industry, Taylor ran out of resources and had to camp on Los Angeles hills.
Taylor Sheridan eventually returned to Los Angeles and began getting bit parts of TV shows like ‘Texas Rangers’ ‘Walker’ and ‘Veronica Mars’. Taylor’s life still had little success in terms of wage and creative satisfaction. He started teaching acting classes in the evening to earn more.
In 2008, Taylor secured an acting job in the FX television crime series ‘Sons of Anarchy’ though his financial status remained the same. He was Deputy Hale in the series, but that isn’t the only script Taylor produced.
Taylor Sheridan decided to look for another way of storytelling. He came up with his first script, ‘Sicario’, with no expectation of filming it. On 19th May 2015, the speculative script was released at the Cannes Film festival. By then, Taylor had no idea he would be writing a sequel named “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” released in 2018.
Taylor wrote his second script, ‘Comancheria’ in 2012 in the succession of his first masterpiece. In 2016, the masterpiece became the modern western ‘Hell and High Water’. On the other hand, in 2015, ‘Sicario’ made appearances on the silver screen before the second masterpiece, ‘Hell or High Water’, even though it was the first to be produced.
Taylor’s production shocked Hollywood waking them from a creative slumber. In 2015, ‘Sicario’ earned him the Best Original Screenplay’s Writers Guild of American Awards. By the time ‘Hell or High Water’ premiered, it had become the most awaited Hollywood project. Taylor got eight nominations, including the Best Original Screenplay’s Academy Award and the BAFTA in 2016.
In 2017, Taylor released ‘Wind River’ which was his first directorial debut. In 2018, ‘Yellowstone’, Taylor’s first TV project, premiered on Paramount Network. Currently, Taylor is working on ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’, his second directorial project.
