“I soak up and learn as much as I can, because they are icons,” says Boyd Holbrook of his many collaborators, which include pop-culture heavyweights like the photographers David Armstrong, Bruce Weber, and Inez & Vinoodh and the filmmakers Gus Van Sant and, recently, David Fincher and Terrence Malick. “They have their own language and they speak it.” The 32-year-old actor—who is also a musician, sculptor, and model—made his way in New York with his farm-boy good looks and “nevermind” demeanor for brands such as Levi’s, Viktor & Rolf, and Hugo Boss. He chalks up his success to clear communication, “no matter what the medium,” he says. And with two well-reviewed roles at Sundance—as a strapping young Aussie in the Craig Johnson–directed film Skeleton Twins and another in newcomer Sara Colangelo’s Little Accidents, in which he plays a lone survivor in a coal-mining town—we hear you, Boyd. “Little Accidents is a great piece with a great voice about a region of our culture that doesn’t have the chance to be heard,” says Holbrook, who grew up in blue-collar Kentucky coal-mining country. “I wanted to do it out of respect and admiration and curiosity about the industry that essentially put food on my table.” He can appreciate a daunting job, having once worked the graveyard shift unloading aircrafts, in order to pay his college tuition. With three more projects wrapped and slated for early fall—Gavin O’Connor’s Jane Got a Gun, which stars Natalie Portman, A Walk Among the Tombstones, with Liam Neeson, and David Fincher’s Gone Girl, with Ben Affleck—the multitasking, multitalented Holbrook is now set on directing. Who else but a good ol’ country boy could truly appreciate the serene simplicity of Sam Shepard’s short story about a man and his dog?

Skeleton Twins will be in theaters September, 2014
