DENNIS QUAID reaffirms his place as one of the most charismatic and diverse actors of our time in the role of Nick Parker vintner, father, fiance and target of this modern "The Parent Trap."
Quaid makes his directorial debut for TNT with "Everything That Rises," the story of a Wyoming man's struggle to hold on to the land passed down through generations which takes a new poignancy when his son is critically injured in an auto accident. This fall, Quaid will be seen in Oliver Stone's "Savior," directed by Peter Antonijevic, in which he stars opposite Nastassja Kinski and portrays a French-American mercenary who reclaims his humanity by rescuing a baby girl orphaned by the Bosnian War.
Quaid is set to begin production in November on the Warner Bros. film "On Any Given Sunday." Directed by Oliver Stone, Quaid will play a Joe Montana-like quarterback legend who is facing the downside of his career. The film also stars Al Pacino and Sean Combs. He most recently starred in Paramount's "Switchback" and MGM's "Gang Related."
Quaid received considerable critical praise for his role as Doc Holliday in the western "Wyatt Earp," and for the Oscar¨ nominated space epic "The Right Stuff."
His impressive body of work includes Lasse Hallstrom's "Something to Talk About," opposite Julia Roberts and Robert Duvall; the fantasy action-adventure film, "Dragonheart"; Steve Kloves' critically acclaimed "Flesh and Bone" opposite Meg Ryan; Alan Parker's World War II saga "Come See the Paradise"; Taylor Hackford's "Everybody's All-American," opposite Jessica Lange; Peter Yates' "Suspect," with Cher; Annabel Jankel's remake of the 1949 film noir "D.O.A.," opposite Meg Ryan; Jim Bridges' "The Big Easy" with Ellen Barkin; and Joe Dante's "Innerspace," opposite Meg Ryan. He showcased his musical talents in the films "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia," "Tough Enough" and "Great Balls of Fire."
Quaid began acting in high school and studied theater at the University of Houston. Soon after his arrival in Hollywood he landed the plum role of a working-class tough in "Breaking Away." Other early film credits include "The Long Riders" with brother Randy, "9/30/55," "Crazy Mama," "Dreamscape," "All Night Long," "Our Winning Season," "Cavemen," "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" and "Enemy Mine."

On His Own." A year later he co-starred with Randy Quaid
in the off-Broadway production of Sam Shepard's "True West,"
