A WALK ON THE MOON
Acclaimed actor TONY GOLDWYN makes
his directorial debut with A WALK ON THE MOON, a sexy and poignant
romance set against the summer of Woodstock. Future directing
projects include "Imagining Nathan," for which Goldwyn
is currently working on the screenplay with Academy Award winner
Bo Goldman and "Georgia Rule," written by Oscar nominee
Ironically one of Goldwyn's most recent acting portraits was of
Armstrong in the celebrated HBO series "From the Earth to
the Moon" produced by
Tom Hanks and Imagine Entertainment. He also voices the title
role of the Disney
animated feature "Tarzan" joined by a cast including
Glenn Close, Minnie Driver,
Nigel Hawthorne and Rosie O'Donnell.
In 1997, he appeared with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd in Paramount
Pictures' "Kiss The Girls," based on James Paterson's
best-seller, and starred in the critically acclaimed Miramax film
"The Substance of Fire," based on Jon Robin Batiz' award-winning
play. The previous year Goldwyn starred with Nathan Lane and Mare
Winningham in Hallmark's telefilm "The Boy's Next Door";
and on Broadway that year, he starred with Laura Linney in the
highly praised revival of "Holiday." In 1995, Goldwyn
was seen in two critically acclaimed bio-pics: Oliver Stone's
"Nixon" and HBO's "Truman." He also starred
opposite Sally Field in the mini-series "A Woman of Independent
Goldwyn made his feature debut in Luis Mandoki's "Gaby: A
True Story" and gained international attention for his co-starring
role in the 1990 box office smash "Ghost." He went on
to play another memorable villain in Alan J. Pakula's 1993 film,
"The Pelican Brief." Other credits include "Kuffs,"
HBO's "The Doomsday Gun," Showtime's "Love Matters"
and a wonderfully ghoulish episode of "Tales From The Crypt."
He also recently completed filming two independents: "Trouble
in the Corner" and "The Lesser Evil."
On the New York Stage, Goldwyn was seen earlier this year in Craig
Lucas' "The Dying Gaul" at the Vineyard Theater. He
starred at the Second Stage with Kevin Bacon in the 1992 hit comedy
"Spike Heels" and in 1991 won an Obie Award for "The
Sum of Us" at the Cherry Lane Theater. He has spent several
seasons at the Williamstown Theater Festival with credits including
"Carthaginians," the title role in "Tom Jones,"
"Oedipus," "Peer Gyn," "Uncle Vanya"
and "Vieux Carre." He made his New York debut in 1985
at the Manhattan Theatre Club in "Digby." Other theatre
credits include "The Lion in Winter" for the Chataqua
