Attesting to his desire to work with prolific writers and directors, NICKY KATT (Hitler) was also seen this year in Christopher Nolan's "Insomnia" as an incompetent local detective who gets displaced by an outside hotshot investigator, starring opposite Al Pacino and Hilary Swank.

Katt recently appeared with Taye Diggs, Juliette Lewis, Benicio del Toro and Ryan Phillippe in Academy Award winner Christopher McQuarrie's directorial debut "Way of the Gun." He scored raves starring with Giovanni Ribisi in the zeitgeist Wall Street drama "The Boiler Room," and joined Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson in the William Friedkin thriller "Rules of Engagement."

Katt has a very cool body of work to his credit -- and it all began with John Cassavettes. His mother, Carol, was costume designer for Cassavettes, and introduced Nicky to experimental theater at the age of 13, when he worked with Gena Rowlands and Jon Voight under Cassavetes direction in "Love Streams."

Katt had his breakthrough role in Richard Linklater's "Dazed and Confused," which led to such diverse roles as the one-armed villainous clerk in Gregg Araki's "The Doom Generation," an obsessed psychopath in "The Babysitter," the redneck antagonist in Joel Schumacher's "A Time To Kill," the hot-headed xenophobe in Linklater's SubUrbia, Renee Zellwegger's ambitious attorney boyfriend in "One True Thing" and the sociopathic hitman in Steven Soderbergh's acclaimed thriller The "Limey."

Katt also recently starred in and executive produced Adam Goldberg's independent feature "Scotch and Milk," which garnered rave reviews at the 1998 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. A short film he produced and starred in, director Henry Griffin's "Mutiny," premiered at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and went on to win Best Short Honors at the Chicago International Film Festival, the Seattle Film Festival and the South by Southwest Film Festival.

Katt made his television debut as a series regular in "Boston Public."
