A CIVIL ACTION

JOHN TRAVOLTA (Jan Schlichtmann) has been honored twice with Academy Award™ nominations, most recently for his riveting portrayal of a philosophical hit man in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction." He also received a Golden Globe nomination for the highly acclaimed role and was named Best Actor by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, among other distinguished awards. He was equally praised as a Mafioso-turned-movie-producer in the comedy sensation "Get Shorty," for which he was singled out by many critics as one of the best performances of the year and garnered a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. In 1998 Travolta was honored by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts with the Britannia Award. Also in 1998 Travolta received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Chicago Film Festival.

He previously starred in some of the most momentous films of his generation. He earned his first Oscar® and Golden Globe nominations for his role in the blockbuster "Saturday Night Fever," which launched the disco phenomenon of the late 1970s. He went on to star in the mega-hit screen version of the long-running musical "Grease" and the wildly successful "Urban Cowboy." Additional film credits include the Brian DePalma thrillers "Carrie" and "Blow Out," as well as Amy Heckerling's hit comedy "Look Who's Talking."

Travolta starred in "Michael" and "Phenomenon" and took an equally diverse turn as an action star in John Woo's top box-office thriller "Broken Arrow." He has also starred in "Face/Off," costarring Nicolas Cage, and in "She's So Lovely," with Sean Penn and Robin Wright, as well as in "Mad City," costarring Dustin Hoffman. He also starred for Mike Nichols in "Primary Colors," costarring Emma Thompson and Billy Bob Thornton. He is currently filming "The General's Daughter" for director Simon West.
