THE NEWTON BOYS
SKEET ULRICH (Joe Newton) starred as a faith healer
in "Touch." Directed by Paul Schrader, the film also
featured Bridget Fonda, Christopher Walken and Tom Arnold. Ulrich
starred opposite Neve Campbell in Wes Craven's smashhit
thriller, "Scream." He also appeared in Kevin Spacey's
directorial debut, "Albino Alligator," with Matt Dillon
and Faye Dunaway.
Early in his career, he garnered attention for his work in three
very different feature films: "Boys," opposite Winona
Ryder, "Last Dance," opposite Sharon Stone, and "The
Craft," again starring opposite Neve Campbell.
Ulrich can currently be seen in "As Good As It Gets,"
directed by James L. Brooks and starring Jack Nicholson and Helen
Hunt. He recently filmed "Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong"
in New Zealand. His next project is the lead role in Ang Lee's
"To Live On" opposite Tobey MacGuire and Jewel.
Born and reared in North Carolina, Ulrich first came to prominence
during his undergraduate days at NYU. Performing in a stage production
there, he was noticed by David Mamet, who asked him to be an apprentice
at the acclaimed Atlantic Theater Company. Working closely with
the legendary writer and director, he performed in a number of
the company's productions, including "Reckless" and
"Hedda Gabler." He has also performed with the Naked
Angels Theater Company and with the Drama Department.
The 27yearold Ulrich makes his home in New York.
