A SIMPLE PLAN

BILL PAXTON (Hank Mitchell) has established himself as one of Hollywood's most adventurous actors, known to audiences from his numerous roles in films of every genre. Paxton recently starred as Vietnam War strategist Lieutenant John Paul Vann, in "A Bright Shining Lie."

In December Paxton stars as a field zoologist in the remake of the 1949 classic monster movie "Mighty Joe Young."

Paxton starred in Steven Spielberg's "Twister" and also portrayed a licensed counselor who becomes romantically involved with Shirley MacLaine's character in "The Evening Star"

In the Academy Award®-nominated "Apollo 13," Paxton starred opposite Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon. He also appeared opposite Arnold Schwarzennegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in yet another box-office triumph, "True Lies," which reunited him with director James Cameron. This marked the third collaboration between Cameron and Paxton; previously Paxton was in "Aliens" and "The Terminator." His most recent collaboration with Cameron was a starring role in last year's multiple Academy Award®-winning film, "Titanic."

Paxton first emerged as a leading man with Carl Franklin's acclaimed thriller, "One False Move," which won the 1992 Los Angeles Film Critics Association New Generation Award.

In "Trespass," co-starring Ice T and Ice Cube, Paxton reunited with director Walter Hill, with whom he had previously worked on "Streets of Fire."

Paxton got his start in Hollywood working as a set dresser on Roger Corman's 1974 New World Production, "Big Bad Mama." After working on several features, Paxton decided to change pace and moved to New York to study acting. Upon returning to Los Angeles, he began accumulating acting credits, first in low-budget horror movies like "Mortuary" and later in major motion pictures including "The Lords of Discipline," Kathryn Bigelow's "Near Dark" and the hit John Hughes comedy "Weird Science."

Paxton was also seen as a modern-day grifter from a family of gypsies in the independent feature, the critically acclaimed "Traveller" for director Jack Green, co-starring Juliana Margulies and Mark Wahlberg and with Paxton also serving as producer.
