TIM ROBBINS portrays Oliver Lang, Michael's neighbor who may be much more than the father, husband and architect he claims to be.

An Academy Award nominee, Golden Globe and Cannes Film Festival winner, Robbins is an actor/director/writer/producer who has starred in a plethora of critical and commercial hits.

He directed, co-produced and wrote the highly praised Dead Man Walking, adapted from Sister Helen Prejean's book. The 1995 film starred Robbins' longtime companion Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, and earned Robbins an Academy Award nomination for Best Director and Sarandon an Academy Award for Best Actress.

A year later he executive produced The Typewriter, The Rifle and The Camera, a documentary about filmmaker Sam Fuller. It won the CableAce Award for Best Documentary.

His most recent acting roles include Nothing To Lose, co-starring Martin Lawrence; the award winning The Shawshank Redemption with Morgan Freeman; and, I.Q. with co-star Meg Ryan.

It was 1992 when Robbins reaped numerous accolades, including the Cannes Film Festival Best Actor Award and a Golden Globe for Best Actor, for his portrayal of the amoral studio chief in Robert Altman's The Player. Later that year, he was recognized for the political satire Bob Roberts, his debut as a writer and director. Not only did he star in it, but he also wrote some of the film's songs.

Among his other acting credits: Robert Altman's Short Cuts; Tony Bill's Five Corners co-starring Jodie Foster; the Coen Brothers' The Hudsucker Proxy with Paul Newman; Adrian Lyne's Jacob's Ladder; and Bull Durham, his breakthrough film, opposite Susan Sarandon and Kevin Costner.

In 1981, Robbins co-founded The Actors' Gang, the highly acclaimed and respected Los Angeles theatre ensemble dedicated to the production of wild, original and provocative theatre.

Recently he produced and directed the feature Cradle Will Rock.
