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
