FOR LOVE OF THE GAME

JOHN C. REILLY (Gus Sinski) has exhibited consummate versatility to crank the gears of treachery, comedy and camaraderie in collaborations with such noted directors as Paul Thomas Anderson, Terrence Malick, Brian De Palma and now Sam Raimi.

Among his recent performances, Reilly played a porn star and drug-popping buddy opposite Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. In Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line, he received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Mess Sergeant Storm.

In the role that began his career, Reilly portrayed a misguided Vietnam War recruit in Brian De Palma's Casualties of War. Reilly has received notoriety for his performances in such films as The River Wild, Georgia, Hard Eight, What's Eating Gilbert Grape? and Hoffa. Some of his other films include Dolores Claiborne, Shadows and Fog, Days of Thunder and We're No Angels.

Raised on Chicago's rough Southwest side, Reilly began performing in local theatre while still a child. He continued with his interest in drama and was accepted at the prestigious Goodman School of Drama. Having planted his roots on stage, Reilly has continued to remain active in theatre. His credits on stage include The Grapes of Wrath on Broadway, A Streetcar Named Desire at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre and Walking the Boogie, which he wrote and directed, at Chicago's Organic Theatre.

Reilly recently appeared in Never Been Kissed with Drew Barrymore. He has a starring role in Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film Magnolia, to be released by New Line Cinema later this year.
