During his university days, Sheridan had to take up odd jobs, such as mowing lawns and working as a handyman. In one such instance, when he was wandering about in an Austin mall, looking for a job, a talent scout approached him with an opportunity to work as a model. Instead, Sheridan asked him to arrange for an acting job.

The talent scout got Sheridan an audition and a plane ticket for the trip. However, Sheridan encashed the ticket at the counter and drove to Chicago. He got the ‘Montgomery Ward’ commercial. Following this, he dropped out of college and moved to New York, where he stayed for a year before moving to Los Angeles.

Without much success in the entertainment industry, Sheridan soon ran out of resources and had to resort to camping on the hills above Los Angeles. He eventually drifted to an Indian encampment, where he got acquainted with a few Native Americans from the Pine Ridge reservation, which became his next destination. For the next few months, Sheridan lived among the Natives, absorbing every story he was told of their struggle and hardships.

Sheridan eventually returned to Los Angeles and started getting bit parts on TV shows such as ‘Walker,’ ‘Texas Ranger,’ and ‘Veronica Mars.’ However, there was still little success in his life in terms of creative satisfaction and remuneration. He had to teach acting in the evenings to fill the gap.

In 2008, Sheridan finally got his first steady acting work, in the ‘FX’ crime series ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ However, his financial struggles remained constant. After being paid the basic weekly rates for 2 years, when Sheridan rightfully tried negotiating his compensation, the show masters refused to see reason.

Dejected by his slow-acting career, Sheridan and his family moved to Wyoming. He even considered taking up a job as a ranch manager. However, the work required him to stay at the ranch, leaving his family in the town. This was a thought that disturbed him greatly and made him rethink the course of his future.

Sheridan decided to find an alternative way of storytelling. He wrote his first speculative script, ‘Sicario,’ without any expectations of it being filmed. ‘Sicario’ was released on May 19, 2015, at the ‘Cannes Film Festival’ and on September 18, 2015, in the US.

Back then, he had no idea that within a few years, he would be writing a sequel titled ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado.’ The sequel was released in 2018.

In 2012, Sheridan wrote his second masterpiece, ‘Comancheria,’ in quick succession to his first, which was adapted as the modern Western ‘Hell or High Water’ in 2016. Incidentally, ‘Sicario’ made it to the silver screen in 2015, before ‘Hell or High Water,’ even though the latter went into production first. Sheridan’s films shook Hollywood out of a creative slumber.
