TWILIGHT

GIANCARLO ESPOSITO (Reuben) began his motion picture career with an appearance in "Taps," starring Timothy Hutton, Sean Penn, Tom Cruise and George C. Scott. Esposito is probably best known for his charismatic roles in five Spike Lee films - "Do the Right Thing," "School Daze," "Mo' Better Blues," "Jungle Fever" and the acclaimed "Malcolm X," which made him a favorite of many, in and out of the close-knit Spike Lee circle. His other film credits include Jim Jarmusch's "Night on Earth," Tim Robbins "Bob Roberts," "Fresh," "Cotton Club," and "King of New York" among others.

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, the actor's recent credits include "The First Wives Club," "Nothing to Lose," "The Maze," "The Usual Suspects," "Klash," "The Keeper," Wayne Wang's "Smoke," "Blue in the Face" and "Reckless."

Giancarlo's stage background is one of his greatest strengths. The challenge of the live audience only enhances and enables him to display his true acting abilities, always heartfelt. On stage, Giancarlo has appeared in numerous off-Broadway productions, most importantly, "Distant Fires," an Atlantic Theater Company production, for which he received an Obie Award and a Drama Desk nomination. He received another Obie Award and Theater World Award for his performance in "Zooman and the Sign." Giancarlo's other stage credits include "Sacrilege" with Ellen Burstyn, "Trafficking in Broken Hearts," "Don't Get God Started," "Merrily We Roll Along," "Seesaw" and "Lost in the Stars," among others.

Esposito's television credits include guest-starring roles on "NYPD Blue," "Chicago Hope," and "Miami Vice" and a starring role in his own highly-acclaimed series "Bakersfield P.D." Esposito has appeared in over a half-dozen made-for-tv movies, including NBC's "Five Desperate Hours," the PBS series "Roanoake" and the PBS movie "Simple Justice."
