KEVIN BACON is one of the foremost actors of his generation, having proven his talents in a wide range of film genres, from action thrillers to romantic comedies to heavy dramas, and even the occasional musical. His talent for balancing starring roles with powerful supporting characters has allowed him to build a varied and critically acclaimed body of work.

Bacon began production this spring in Los Angeles on Paul Verhoeven's The Hollow Man, a big-budget Columbia Pictures drama about an invisible man. Besides Stir of Echoes, he will also be seen this year in My Dog Skip, from Warner Brothers.

In 1998, Bacon was seen in Wild Things, a stylish thriller directed by John McNaughton, and Digging to China, Timothy Hutton's feature directorial debut. In 1997, Bacon also starred in two films: Fox's Picture Perfect and an indie film, Telling Lies in America.

In 1996, he directed his first film, Losing Chase, a cable movie for Showtime, starring his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, Beau Bridges and Helen Mirren. That film was honored with three Golden Globe nominations, and was also screened at the prestigious Sundance and Toronto film festivals.

That same year, Bacon also reunited with Diner director Barry Levinson in Sleepers, co-starring alongside Brad Pitt, Robert De Niro and Jason Patric in the Warner Brothers film.

In 1995, Bacon starred in one of the year's biggest hits, Ron Howard's Apollo 13, co-starring with Tom Hanks, Gray Sinise and Bill Paxton. That year, he also received great critical praise for his performance as a mentally challenged man on trial for murder in Murder in the First. Bacon was voted Best Actor by the Broadcast Critics Association for that performance, and also received Best Supporting Actor nominations from both the Screen Actors Guild and the London Film Critics Circle. The previous year, 1994, Bacon was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in The River Wild, alongside Meryl Streep.

Other roles during Bacon's career include the brilliant, but self-destructive Fenwick in Levinson's Diner; the dancing rebel in Footloose; an overly expectant father in John Hughes' She's Having a Baby; a disarming, psychotic killer in Criminal Law; a film student/director in The Big Picture; a hapless handyman cowboy in Tremors; and the voice of the title character in Steven Spielberg's animated film Balto. Bacon also made memorable appearances in Oliver Stone's JFK and Rob Reiner's A Few Good Men.

Bacon's acting career began when he left his native Philadelphia with the support of his parents and became the youngest student at the Circle in the Square Theatre in New York. While there, he eventually made his film debut as Chip in the legendary comedy, National Lampoon's Animal House. That led to acclaimed roles in Diner and Footloose, the latter of which propelled him to stardom.

Kevin Bacon is also an accomplished stage actor. His stage work includes such off-Broadway productions as Album, Poor Little Lambs, and Getting Out. He made his Broadway debut in 1983 alongside Sean Penn in Slab Boys, and also starred in the 1986 production of Joe Orton's highly-touted play, Loot. More recently, Bacon returned to New York to appear in Theresa Rebeck's comedy, Spike Hee
