THE TIME MACHINE
JEREMY IRONS (Uber-Morlock) won an Academy Award R, a Golden Globe Award, and was named Best Actor by several critics organizations for his chilling portrayal of Claus von
Bulow in Barbet Schroeder's "Reversal of Fortune." One of today's most respected actors, he has starred in a broad range of films, including the action blockbuster "Die Hard With a Vengeance"; David Cronenberg's horror thriller "Dead Ringers," for which he won a Genie Award and a New York Film Critics Award for Best Actor; the top-grossing animated feature "The Lion King," in which he voiced the villainous Scar; and Adrian Lyne's controversial drama "Lolita." He also stars in two more films due out this year: "And Now... Ladies and Gentlemen," for director Claude
Lelouch; and "Callas Forever," directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Irons has just completed filming the Showtime original picture entitled "Last Call."
Irons' earlier film credits include Karel Reisz' "The French Lieutenant's Woman," for which he garnered a BAFTA nomination, Jerzy Skolimowski's "Moonlighting," David Hugh Jones' "Betrayal," Volker Schlondorffs "Swann in Love" and Roland Joffe's "The Mission," for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination. His long list of credits also includes such diverse films as Steven Soderbergh's "Kafka," Louis Malle's "Damage," David Cronenberg's "M. Butterfly," Billie August's "The House of the Spirits," Bernardo Bertolucci's "Stealing Beauty," Wayne Wang's "The Chinese Box," and "The Man in the Iron Mask." Interestingly, Irons also portrayed The
Time Machine author H.G. Wells in the science fiction short "From Time to Time."
He has also worked extensively on television, most notably starring in the groundbreaking miniseries "Brideshead Revisited," for which he received Emmy, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award nominations. He more recently co-starred in "Longitude," an A&E Granada film, which premiered on the BBC.
Irons began his acting career on the stage in his native England at the Bristol Old
Vic, and made his London bow as John the Baptist in "Godspell." He was later honored
with Tony and Drama League Awards for Best Actor for his Broadxvay debut in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing," opposite Glenn Close.
