MICKEY BLUE EYES

HUGH GRANT's (Michael Felgate) acting credits are diverse and numerous, and include theatre, television and film. This summer Grant starred in the hit "Notting Hill" with Julia Roberts. The original screenplay was written and produced by the "Four Weddings and a Funeral" team, and the film is directed by Roger Michell.

Grant will be acting, along with Woody Allen, Tracey Ullman and Jon Lovitz, in Allen's next film, shooting in New York this summer.

"Mickey Blue Eyes" is the second feature film from Simian Films, the company Grant and Elizabeth Hurley set up as part of their first look deal with Castle Rock Entertainment. Grant also starred in "Extreme Measures," the first feature film from Simian Films, with Gene Hackman.

In 1994, Grant became an international star for his work in "Four Weddings and a Funeral," directed by Mike Newell and co-starring Andie MacDowell, for which Grant won both Golden Globe and British Academy Awards. In that same year, he also starred in Roman Polanski's "Bitter Moon" opposite Kristen Scott Thomas, as well as in "Sirens," directed by John Duigan.

Hugh Grant first came to notice in 1982 while at Oxford University, when he made the movie "Privileged." But it was in the 1987 Merchant-Ivory production of "Maurice," E.M. Forster's account of a young man at the turn of the century confronting his homosexuality, that Grant first received international acclaim, as well as a Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival.

This led to a succession of film roles, including "The Dawning," with Anthony Hopkins, Ken Russell's "The Lair of the White Worm," "The Big Man" opposite Joanne Whalley-Kilmer and the role of Chopin in James Lapine's "Impromptu." Grant was reunited with director James Ivory in 1993 for his pivotal role as a journalist in "The Remains of the Day," starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson.

In 1995, Grant appeared as Edward Ferrars in the Oscar-winning adaptation of Jane Austen's, "Sense and Sensibility," as a nervous father-to-be in Chris Columbus' "Nine Months" with Robin Williams and Tom Arnold, and in the critically acclaimed "The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain," written and directed by Christopher Monger. He was also seen in the British comedy "An Awfully Big Adventure," directed by Mike Newell, and had a cameo role in the 17th-century romp "Restoration."

Grant's television credits include "The Changeling" and "The Trials of Oz," both for the BBC; ABC's "Our Sons" with Julie Andrews; and CBS's "Dangerous Love" and "Till We Meet Again."

On the stage he worked with director Richard Wilson in "An Inspector Calls" at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre, and with Richard Digby Day in "Lady Windermere's Fan," "Hamlet," and "Coriolanus" at the Nottingham Playhouse.

Among Grant's other film credits are "White Mischief," "Bengali Nights" and "Rowing in the Wind."
