Tye Kayle Sheridan (born November 11, 1996) is an American actor. Sheridan made his feature film debut in Terrence Malick's experimental drama film The Tree of Life (2011) and had his first leading role in the coming-of-age film Mud (2012). He co-starred in the drama Joe (2013). In 2015, he starred in the drama The Stanford Prison Experiment. Sheridan will play the role of the young Cyclops in the 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse.


Sheridan est né à Elkhart, une petite ville de l'est du Texas, au nord de Houston. Fils aîné de Bryan et Stephanie Sheridan, il a également une sœur nommée Madison.

Il fréquente le système scolaire indépendant d'Elkhart depuis la maternelle, et, chaque année, a toujours obtenu de bons résultats. En plus de la réussite scolaire, il a pratiqué plusieurs sports tels que le baseball ou le football américain.

Tye a commencé assez jeune sa carrière cinématographique en jouant le rôle de Steve dans The Tree of Life de Terrence Malick, aux côtés de Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain et Sean Penn. Le tournage a eu lieu en 2008 (Tye avait donc 12 ans à ce moment-là) mais le film est sorti 3 ans plus tard, lors du Festival de Cannes 2011 où il a reçu la Palme d'or.

En 2012 on le retrouve dans le film de Jeff Nichols, Mud : Sur les rives du Mississippi, dans lequel il partage l'affiche avec Matthew McConaughey et Reese Witherspoon. Le film raconte l'histoire de deux adolescents Ellis et Neckbone rencontrant un fugitif avec qui ils forment un pacte pour l'aider à échapper aux chasseurs de primes, et par la même occasion retrouver la femme de sa vie. En 2012, le film a été sélectionné en compétition pour la Palme d'or au 65e Festival de Cannes.

En 2013, avec Nicolas Cage, il est à l'affiche du film Joe de David Gordon Green, ou il incarne le rôle de Gary. Le film est sélectionné en compétition pour le Lion d'or au 70e Festival de Venise, où il reçoit le Prix Marcello-Mastroianni pour le meilleur espoir.

Three high school sophomores, Ben (Tye Sheridan), Carter (Logan Miller), and Augie (Joey Morgan), are trying to recruit new members for their scout group, led by their Scout Leader Rogers (David Koechner). While Augie has always been happy about being a scout, Ben and Carter have second thoughts. Carter tries convincing Ben to quit but he can't as Augie is about to get his Condor Patch. Their conversation of quitting is cut short when Ben accidentally hits a deer. They manage to get help from Carter's sister, Kendall (Halston Sage), and her friends. Ben, who's had a crush on Kendall, gets some advice from her and they all see that the dead deer has vanished. Before they leave, the two are invited to the "Secret Seniors Party" and Carter is given the address. When they go to get alcohol for the party, they meet Denise (Sarah Dumont), a cocktail waitress that works at a strip club. She and Ben hit it off and she agrees to buy the alcohol for them. The two then meet up with Augie in the woods so they can set up their campsite. That night, still concerned about the disappearance of Scout Leader Rogers, the trio talk about how great their friendship has been before heading to sleep. Before the night is out, Carter wakes Ben so they can attend the party. Augie catches up, however, and is disappointed by their choice. The two drive into town to find that the bouncer for the strip club is no longer there and they sneak in. The two are immediately attacked by a zombified bouncer and stripper before being saved by a shotgun wielding Denise. Augie goes to Scout Leader Rogers' house to see if he's OK, only to be attacked by him. He quickly subdues his zombie leader by setting him on fire and tying him up.

Stanford University psychology professor Philip Zimbardo conducts a psychological experiment to test the hypothesis that the personality traits of prisoners and guards are the chief cause of abusive behavior between them. In the experiment, Zimbardo selects fifteen male students to participate in a 14-day prison simulation to take roles as prisoners or guards. They receive $15 per day. The experiment is conducted in a mock prison located in the basement of Jordan Hall, the university's psychology department building. The students who are guards become abusive, as does Zimbardo himself. Two students who play the role of prisoners quit the experiment early, and Zimbardo abruptly stops the entire experiment after only six days.
