As Michael Faraday, JEFF BRIDGES is a widowed college history professor and single parent, haunted not only by his wife's tragic death but by his suspicious new neighbors across the street.

One of Hollywood's most successful actor/producers, Bridges is a three-time Academy Award nominee. He earned his first Oscar nod in 1971 for Best Supporting Actor in Peter Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show, co-starring Cybill Shepherd. Three years later he received his second nomination, again for Best Supporting Actor, in Michael Cimino's Thunderbolt & Lightfoot. By 1984, he landed top kudos with a Best Actor nomination for Starman. That performance also earned him a Golden Globe nod.

Bridges' multi-faceted career has cut a wide swathe across all genres. He has starred in numerous box office hits including Terry Gilliam's offbeat comedic drama The Fisher King, co-starring Robin Williams; the multi-nominated The Fabulous Baker Boys, co-starring his brother Beau Bridges and Michelle Pfeiffer; The Jagged Edge opposite Glenn Close; Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man And His Dream; Blown Away, co-starring his late father Lloyd Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones; Peter Weir's Fearless with Isabella Rossellini and Rosie Perez; and Martin Bell's American Heart with Edward Furlong, produced by Bridges' company AsIs Productions. That film earned him an IFP/West Spirit Award in 1993.

He recently starred in The Muse, an Albert Brooks comedy starring Brooks, Sharon Stone and Andie MacDowell, and Simpatico, the screen version of Sam Shepard's play co-starring Nick Nolte, Sharon Stone and Albert Finney. In 1998, he starred in the Coen Brothers' comedy The Big Lebowski. Prior to that role, Bridges starred in Ridley Scott's White Squall, Walter Hill's Wild Bill and Barbra Streisand's romantic comedy The Mirror Has Two Faces.

His other acting credits include: Stay Hungry, Fat City, Bad Company, Against All Odds, Cutter's Way, The Vanishing, Texasville, The Morning After, Nadine, Rancho Deluxe, See You In The Morning, Eight Million Ways to Die, The Last American Hero and Hearts of the West.

Through his production company, AsIs Productions, he produced Hidden In America, which starred Beau Bridges. The television movie, produced for Showtime, received a Golden Globe nomination in 1996 for Best TV/Cable Film and garnered a Screen Actors Guild nod for Best Actor for Beau Bridges. The film was also nominated for two Emmy Awards. Current AsIs projects in development include The Giver, based on Lois Lowry's Newbery Medal-winning novel.
