LAKE PLACID

BRENDAN GLEESON (Sheriff Hank Keough) is one of Ireland's foremost leading actors. Often referred to as "The Celtic Depardieu," Gleeson began his acting career only in 1990 after many years as a school teacher.

Gleeson is currently filming Mission: Impossible II in Australia, and his film, theater and television career also includes his recent success as Bunny in Paddy Breachnach's I Went Down, which took awards at San Sabastian and Fipresci. His internationally acclaimed role alongside Mel Gibson in Braveheart and his much loved performance as Michael Collins in The Treaty together garnered him the Jacobs Award.

In John Boorman's The General, released last year, Gleeson played Martin Cahill, the Irish crime lord whose potent mix of violence, humor and generosity made him a legend in his lifetime, a legend that has grown largely since his death in 1994.

For The General and I Went Down, Gleeson won the Boston Film Critics Award for Best Actor of the Year, and the 1998 London Film Critics Award for Best Actor in The British Isles for The General.

Additional credits include Neil Jordan's The Butcher Boy and Michael Collins, Jim Sheridan's The Field, Michael Winterbottom's Love Lies Bleeding and Stephen Frear's The Snapper.

Gleeson continues to live in Ireland and will soon be seen as the lead in Stephen Bradley's feature film Sweety Barrett.
