SEAN PENN plays First Sergeant Edward Welsh, the courageous
and cynical NCO who runs Charlie Company.
As an actor, Penn's work has spanned nearly two decades with over
25 films to his credit. His performance in "Dead Man Walking"
garnered critical acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for
Best Actor. In 1997 he was honored with the Best Actor in Cannes
for his portrayal in "She's So Lovely."
Penn will next be seen in Phillip Haas' "Up At The Villa"
and Anthony Drazen's "Hurlyburly," a film adaptation
of David Rabe's play for which he received the Best Actor Award
at the Venice Film Festival in 1998. He is currently on location
in New York filming Woody Allen's upcoming project.
In recent years, Penn's involvement has expanded to include producing
and directing ("The Indian Runner," "The Crossing
Guard") and he has since formed Clyde Is Hungry Films, a
production company based in San Francisco.
