THE COUNTRY BEARS

HALEY JOEL OSMENT (voice of Beary) recently starred in director Steven Spielberg's highly anticipated "A.I." Last year he also traveled to Poland to shoot "Edges of the Lord," playing a Jewish boy sent into the countryside to hide with a Catholic family during the Nazi occupation. He also costarred with Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt in the adaptation of Catherine Ryan Hyde's novel "Pay It Forward."

Osment made an unforgettable impression on movie-goers with his devastating portrayal of the haunted Cole Sear in the record-breaking and internationally-acclaimed film "The Sixth Sense," in which he co-starred with Bruce Willis and Toni Colette for director M. Night Shyamalan. For his performance, Osment was nominated for an Academy Award® at age 11. He also received numerous film critics' awards as well as nominations for a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

An award-winning actor who began his television and film career at age 5, Osment won his first honor, the Youth in Film Award, for his role as Forrest, Jr. in the Oscar®-winning feature film, "Forrest Gump."

The young actor's feature film credits also include Nora Ephron's "Mixed Nuts;" Jason Alexander's directorial debut "For Better or Worse;" and Norman Jewison's "Bogus" in which he starred opposite Oscar®winner Whoopi Goldberg and Gérard Depardieu.

In the voice-over arena, Osment is heard as Chip in Walt Disney's home video animated release "Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas," as Zephyr in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame II," and as Mowgli in Disney's upcoming animated feature "TheJungle Book II."

He made his acting debut starring opposite multi-Emmy winner Edward Asner in the television series "Thunder Alley." He went on to co-star as Matt Foxworthy on "The Jeff Foxworthy Show," and then appeared as Avery Brown on the long-running series"Murphy Brown."

Osment's guest starring television credits include: the two part special of "The Pretender," playing a kidnapped prodigy whose genius is exploited through mind control; "Chicago Hope," where he found himself stuck in an elevator with a corpse; a true life story of Lou Gehrig's Disease on "Touched By An Angel;" and a two-part special of "Walker, Texas Ranger," playing Lucas, a parentless boy dying of AIDS. Osment also captured audiences on a heartfelt episode of "Ally McBeal" where he played a dying boy who wanted to sue God.

In television films, Osment's credits include the Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation of "The Ransom of Red Chief" in which he starred opposite Christopher Lloyd, NBC's science fiction thriller "The Lake" and the World War II feature "I'll Remember April."

He was honored with Young Star Awards for his appearances in both TNT's "Last Stand at Saber River" with Tom Selleck and the Hallmark presentation of the CBS drama "Cab to Canada," with Maureen O'Hara.
