THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER

JOHN TRAVOLTA (Paul Brenner) has been honored twice with Academy AwardTM nominations, most recently for his riveting portrayal of a philosophical hit man in Quentin Tarantino's PULP FICTION. He also received BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations for this highly acclaimed role and was named Best Actor by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, among other distinguished awards. He was equally praised as a Mafioso-turned-movie producer in the comedy sensation GET SHORTY, singled out by many critics as one of the best performances of the year and garnering a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. In 1998 Travolta was honored by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts with the Britannia Award. Also in 1998 Travolta received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Chicago Film Festival. This year he was the winner of the prestigious Alan J. Pakula Award from the US Broadcast Critics Association for his performance in A CIVIL ACTION. He was also nominated again this year for a Golden Globe for his performance in PRIMARY COLORS.

He previously starred in some of the most monumental films of our generation. He earned his first Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for his role in the blockbuster SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, which launched the disco phenomenon of the late 1970s. He went on to star in the big screen version of the long-running musical GREASE and the wildly successful URBAN COWBOY that also influenced trends in popular culture. Additional film credits include the Brian DePalma thrillers CARRIE and BLOW OUT, as well as Amy Heckerling's hit comedy LOOK WHO'S TALKING.

Travolta starred in MICHAEL and PHENOMENON and took an equally diverse turn as an action star in John Woo's top-grossing action thriller BROKEN ARROW. He starred in FACE OFF opposite Nicolas Cage and in SHE'S SO LOVELY with Sean Penn and Robin Wright-Penn, as well as in MAD CITY, co-starring Dustin Hoffman. He also starred for Mike Nichols in PRIMARY COLORS co-starring Emma Thompson and Billy Bob Thornton and A CIVIL ACTION, based on the best-selling book, for director Steve Zaillian.
