Career Beginnings

Starting with appearances in commercials, Elden soon also made his acting debut as Paul Ryan in the soap opera “As the World Turns”, when he was only five years old. In 1985 he made a short appearance in the TV series “Amazing Stories”, and then a minor appearance in the film “Elvis and Me” in 1988. Struggling to make an impact on the acting scene in his early years, Elden had a supporting role in the comedy-drama film “The Mighty Ducks” in 1992, which although receiving negative reviews, still became a cult film and a trilogy, with sequels in 1994 and 1996, “D2: The Mighty Ducks”, and “D3: The Mighty Ducks”. Elden received praise for his performance, which enabled him new roles, and an improvement in his career.

Rise to Prominence

Elden wanted to use the momentum after “The Mighty Ducks” films became classic, and as a result secured roles in such films as the drama “Foxfire” (1996), starring Angelina Jolie, Hedy Burress and Jenny Lewis, then he starred in the Golden Globe Award-nominated comedy-drama film “The Mighty” (1998), next to Kieran Culkin and Sharon Stone, and had a notable role in the fantasy horror film “Idle Hands” in 1999. Elden was gradually becoming more attractive as an actor, which resulted in even more successful roles. He appeared in the adventure drama film “Cast Away” in 2000, starring Tom Hanks, Helen Hunt and Paul Sanchez, which received two Academy Award nominations, and won a number of prestigious awards, which helped push Elden forward in his career. In 2003 he starred in the romantic comedy-drama film “The Battle of Shaker Heights”, next to Shia LaBeouf and Amy Smart, and had a notable role in the cult sci-fi thriller film “The Butterfly Effect”, starring Ashton Kutcher. Elden continued his rise to prominence, and in 2005 had a notable role in the drama film “Lords of Dogtown”, with Heath Ledger as the star of the film.

1Often plays the best friend.


1Brother of Erick Ratliff and Garette Ratliff Henson. Half-brother of Ellington Ratliff.
2Elden's characters Lenny from The Butterfly Effect (2004), and Agent Gunnars from Deja Vu (2006) were both integral to both plots regarding alternate realities based on time travel.
3Elden appeared in both versions of Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School (1990). He played the young Steve Mills in the 1990 short film, then Samson in the 2005 full-length feature. The interesting part is that the 2005 film used the 1990 film as flashback sequences, so, technically, Elden played two parts in the 2005 film-although 15 years had passed between when he had played the two roles.
4Started a production company called Roulette Entertainment with Josh Hartnett.
5Attended Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, but left after the fall semester in 1997.
6Went to John Burroughs High School in Burbank, California.
