Jack Bondurant ▵ Face Claim: Shia LaBeouf
Age: Twenty eight
Being the youngest of four brothers and having the one die in war, Jack got babied quite often. The Bondurant boys’ parents died right after Jack was born, first their father then their mother. Howard soon went off to war and was left under the care of Forrest, the middle child. He and his brother grew close, though Jack was always curious, wanting to know and see more and Forrest was a quiet, patient, sit and wait kind of man. Needless to say, Jack found himself in trouble quite often. But the world was an experience and well worth the whoopings. Money got tight, hell, it got tight for everyone but somehow, the Bondurant’s hardly felt the cold chill of the Great Depression and when Jack turned sixteen, he learned why. Bootlegging. Moonshine. His brothers hit the gold mine. And young Jack wanted in.
Jack is well into the bootlegging business with his older brothers. The three hold the town’s highest quality moonshine and whiskey. Competition barely stands a chance and after cutting better deals with the cops, the boys have even hired on a few new additions to keep operations running smooth. Jack wants to be like one of Al Capone’s guys. Rolling rich, fancy cars, nice suits, impressive cigars. He wants to be the family’s face, the business man, making moves on the outside to get them more profit inside. Unfortunately, his two older brothers don’t quite see eye to eye. Jack is torn between growing up their way, and growing up on his own.
