The multi-talented actor also directed and wrote "Angelo My Love," produced "A Family Thing" and the Emmy-nominated television film "The Man Who Captured Eichmann" and wrote the songs for "Tender Mercies."

Some of his many feature film credits include "The Gingerbread Man," "Phenomenon," "Sling Blade," "The Stars Fell on Henrietta," "Rambling Rose," "Days of Thunder," "Colors," "The Natural," "True Confessions," "Network," "The Conversation," "The Godfather Part II," "M*A*S*H," "THX 1138" and "To Kill a Mockingbird."

He earned an Emmy nomination for the television mini-series "Lonesome Dove" and a Golden Globe for the title role in HBO's "Stalin."

Mr. Duvall's primary residence is a horse farm near Leesburg, Virginia, and in addition to being considered an excellent horseman, he is a serious contender on the tennis court. An ardent dancer, Mr. Duvall frequents the tango clubs of Buenos Aires.
