THE BIG HIT

LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS (Cisco) most recently co-starred in the military drama Courage Under Fire opposite Meg Ryan and Denzel Washington. His portrayal of Monfriez, the headstrong and determined army gunner, won him rave reviews and a Blockbuster Audience Award.

Phillips fulfilled a lifelong acting dream when he took to the stage in the Broadway production of the classic Rogers & Hammerstein musical, "The King & I." Since opening in 1996, the production has garnered six Tony nominations, including a Best Actor nomination for Phillips and Outstanding Broadway Debut awards from Theater World and the New York Outer Critics Circle.

Phillips first came to the public's attention in La Bamba and solidified his reputation in Stand And Deliver, for which he won the Independent Spirit Award as Best Supporting Actor and received a Golden Globe nomination. He also starred in such films as Young Guns I & II, Disorganized Crime, Renegades, The First Power and Shadow of the Wolf.

His cable and television credits include Showtime's "Wharf Rats," HBO's "Extreme Justice" and early career appearances on "Dallas" and "Miami Vice."

Phillips' extensive theater credits include "P.S. Your Cat Is Dead," "The Lady's Not For Burning," "Doctor Faustus," "Hamlet" and a new adaptation of Bertolt Brecht's "The Good Person of Szechwan" with Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner.

In addition to his acting talents, Phillips has established himself as a writer and director. His first produced screenplay, Ambition, in which he also starred, was released by Miramax in 1992. His directorial debut was Dangerous Touch, a psychological thriller for Trimark and HBO, in association with Facet Films (Phillips' own production company). Phillips also directed Sioux City for Cabin Fever Entertainment, which received strong critical notices across the U.S. and a Gold Medal Award at the International Film Festival in Houston, Texas.

A native of Texas, Phillips has been acting since the sixth grade and has been active in the Dallas/Fort Worth theater and film community. When not on location, Phillips lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Kelly. He recently signed to star in the NBC drama "Adversaries," the new series created by "ER" executive producer John Wells.
