BRENT BRISCOE (Sheriff Cecil Coleman) reunites with filmmaker Frank Darabont following his role as prison guard Bill Dodge in the Academy Awards nominated "The Green Mile." Briscoe won rave reviews for his role as one of three men whose lives turn tragic after finding $4 million in drug money in Sam Raimi's
nominated "A Simple Plan." Briscoe's film credits include Milos Forman's "Man on the Moon," "Crazy in Alabama," Showtime trilogy, "Hard Time," "Beautiful," "Another Day in Paradise" and "Double Take."
He made his big screen debut in Billy Bob Thornton's acclaimed, Academy Awards winning film, "Sling Blade" (also appearing in the original short film, "They Call It A Sling Blade"). He reunited with Thornton (with whom he has worked six times) in Oliver Stone's ''U—Turn, ''Madison'' and John Badham's HBO western, "The Jack Bull." He was recently seen in the Farrelly Bros.' comedy, "Say It Isn't So" and in Renny Harlin's action film, "Driven."
Briscoe's own original screenplay, Waking Up in Reno" (co-authored with partner Mark Fauser) will be released in February through Miramax Films. He also co-scripted the CableACE-winning Showtime drama, "Right to Remain Silent" and spent a year as a staff writer on the CBS sitcom, "Evening Shade." During the show's final season (1993-94), Briscoe and Fauser landed two produced teleplays for the comedy show. Briscoe even wrote a recurring part for himself, one of several he has played on television. Other small- screen credits include the pilot for ABC's "Maximum Bob," HBO's popular "Tracey Takes On," a guest stint on "ER" and the pilot for the CBS sitcom, "Hearts Afire" (again with Thornton).
