WILD THINGS

KEVIN BACON co-starred this summer with Jennifer Aniston in PICTURE PERFECT. He has also completed production on both TELLING LIES IN AMERICA and DIGGING TO CHINA. TELLING LIES IN AMERICA is a film about a Hungarian immigrant boy's experiences in the world of rock n' roll radio and his assimilation into American society in the early '60s. In DIGGING TO CHINA, Timothy Hutton's feature directorial debut, Bacon stars opposite Mary Stuart Masterson as a naive, mentally challenged man with the mind set of a young child. Both films are set for release later this year.

One of the foremost actors of his generation, Bacon reunited with director Barry Levinson last year on SLEEPERS, starring with Brad Pitt, Robert De Niro and Jason Patric.

In 1995, Bacon appeared in Ron Howard's APOLLO 13, also starring Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise and Bill Paxton. For his role as a convict on trial for murder in MURDER IN THE FIRST, Bacon was voted Best Actor by the Broadcast Critics Association and garnered Best Supporting Actor nominations from both the Screen Actors Guild and the London Film Critics Circle. In 1994, Bacon received a nomination for a Golden Globe Award for his role in THE RIVER WILD, co-starring Meryl Streep.

Bacon's performances also include the brilliant but self-destructive Fenwick in Levinson's DINER, the dancing rebel in FOOTLOOSE, the overly expectant father in John Hughes' SHE'S HAVING A BABY, a disarming, psychotic killer in CRIMINAL LAW, a film student/director wooed by Hollywood in THE BIG PICTURE, the hapless handyman cowboy in TREMORS and the voice of the title character in Steven Spielberg's animated film BALTO. Oliver Stone's JFK and Rob Reiner's A FEW GOOD MEN also highlight his filmography.

Bacon recently directed his first film, LOSING CHASE, featuring his wife, actress Kyra Sedgwick, Beau Bridges and Helen Mirren (who received a Golden Globe Award for her performance).

Produced for Showtime, LOSING CHASE was honored with two additional Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture made for television. Released theatrically in the fall of 1996, the film screened at the 1997 Sundance and the 1996 Toronto film festivals.

With the support of his parents, Bacon left his native Philadelphia to become the youngest student at Circle In the Square Theater in New York, where he studied until he made his film debut as Chip in NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE. DINER and FOOTLOOSE followed shortly thereafter.

Bacon's stage work includes such off-Broadway productions as "Album," "Poor Little Lambs" and "Getting Out." He made his Broadway debut in 1983 with Sean Penn in"Slab Boys" and also starred in the 1986 production of Joe Orton's highly touted "Loot." More recently, Bacon returned to New York to appear in Theresa Rebeck's comedy "Spike Heels," with Tony Goldwyn and Saundra Santiago.

Bacon's television credits include the American Playhouse version of Lanford Wilson's play "Lemon Sky," a production in which he teamed with his wife. Additional credits include "The Gift" and "Enormous Changes at the Last Minute."

Kevin also plays rhythm guitar, writes songs and tours with his brother Michael, an accomplished musician and composer, and together they form the Bacon Brothers.
