ART LINSON (Producer) most recently produced "The Edge," starring Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin, released by Twentieth Century Fox. Linson's credits range from such unusual classics as "Car Wash" and "Melvin and Howard" (winner of two Academy Awards, for Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress) to commercials hits Such as "The Untouchables," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "Dick Tracy" and "Scrooged" to the critically acclaimed "Casualties of War," "Singles," "This Boy's Life," and "Heat" starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Val Kilmer.

Born in Chicago, Linson grew up in Hollywood, at the Knickerbocker Hotel, a name he fondly bestowed on his production. He went to the University of California at Berkeley in 1960, finished his degree at UCLA and graduated from UCLA Law school in 1967, but opted not to practice law. Instead Linson took a job working for record producer Lou Adler. For a brief period in the 1 970s, Linson ran his own company, Spin Dizzy Records, recording and managing such rock musicians as Spirit and Nils Lofgren.

In the 20 years since he produced his first motion picture, Art Linson has distinguished himself in Hollywood by developing scripts and stories that attract the highest caliber talent ­­ resulting in some of the most successful and admired motion pictures in the last two decades.

Linson's pursuit of imaginative material led him to collaborate with many of Hollywood's finest screenwriters including David Mamet, Bo Goldman, David Rabe, Cameron Crowe, Mitch Glazer, Michael O'Donoghue and Robert Getchell. In addition, in 1993, Linson published his first book entitled A Pound of Flesh: Perilous Tales of How to Produce Movies in Hollywood.
