Academy Award™-nominee JAMES GARNER (Raymond Hope) has been an esteemed member of the acting profession since he received widespread critical acclaim for his breakthrough performance in "Sayonara," starring Marlon Brando.

He received his Oscar® nomination in 1984 for his work in the film "Murphy's Romance" opposite Sally Field and includes among his many feature film credits starring roles in such noteworthy films as "The Great Escape," "The Children's Hour," "Grand Prix," "The Americanization of Emily," "Skin Game," "Support Your Local Sheriff," "Victor/Victoria," "Maverick" and most recently "My Fellow Americans."

Born in Oklahoma, Garner moved to Hollywood when he was a teenager, but living in Tinseltown did not necessarily whet his appetite for a career in acting. He held numerous odd jobs before joining the army and served 14 months in combat as an infantryman in Korea for which he was awarded the Purple Heart.

Upon his return, Garner looked up an old friend who had become a producer during his absence. The friend, Paul Gregory, gave Garner his first acting job in the stage production of "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial."

His popularity was secured in the 1950s hit television series "Maverick." He also went on to star in another successful series, "The Rockford Files," for which he was awarded an Emmy. To this day, there is still a demand for more episodes with Garner as the Malibu private investigator.

A Golden Globe winner for his work in the HBO telefilm "Decoration Day" and "Barbarians at the Gate," Garner has earned numerous Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his work in the acclaimed telefilms "Heartsounds," "Promise," "My Name is Bill W.," "Decoration Day," and "Breathing Lessons."
