SWORDFISH

JOHN TRAVOLTA (Gabriel Shear) 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 BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations 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," garnering 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.

Travolta won the prestigious Alan J. Pakula Award from the U.S. Broadcast Critics Association for his performance in "A Civil Action," based on the best-selling book and directed by Steve Zaillian. Last year, he was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in "Primary Colors," directed by Mike Nichols and co-starring Emma Thompson and Billy Bob Thornton.

He previously starred in some of the most monumental films of our 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 big screen version of the long-running musical "Grease" and the wildly successful "Urban Cowboy," which also influenced trends in popular culture. Additional film credits include the Brian DePalma thrillers "Carrie" and "Blowout," as well as Amy Heckerling's hit comedy, "Look Who's Talking."

Travolta starred in "Phenomenon" and took a diverse turn as an action star in John Woo's top-grossing action thriller, "Broken Arrow." He also starred in the classic "Face/Off," opposite Nicholas Cage, and "The General's Daughter," co-starring Madeleine Stowe.

Most recently Travolta starred in "Battlefield Earth," based on the best selling novel by L. Ron Hubbard, and "Lucky Numbers," opposite Lisa Kudrow, on which he re-teamed with Nora Ephron, having starred in the hit comedy "Michael," which Ephron directed and co-wrote.
