BILLY CONNOLLY (Zebulon Gant) recently appeared opposite Michelle Pfeiffer, Robin Wright Penn and Renée Zellweger in the acclaimed drama White Oleander. Perhaps best known for his comedic work, he has also established himself as a compelling dramatic actor, most notably opposite Dame Judi Dench in the highly-acclaimed Mrs. Brown. The Scottish-born actor recently starred in the independent film Who is Cletis Tout? and is currently on screen in Richard Donner's time travel adventure Timeline.

A stand-up comedian who has performed internationally, Connolly's film credits include Troy Duffy's The Boondock Saints, Stephen Metcalfe's Beautiful Joe, Barry Levinson's An Everlasting Piece, and Stanley Tucci's The Impostors, as well as Absolution with Richard Burton, Bullshot and Water with Michael Caine, Crossing the Line with Liam Neeson, and the acclaimed BBC production Down Among the Big Boys. He also appeared in the Muppet movie version of Treasure Island and starred in the BBC drama The Life and Crimes of Deacon Brodie. Connolly's voice is featured in the animated film Pocohantas.

American audiences recognize Connolly from the hit TV series Head of the Class, which led to his own series, Billy. He also appeared on the sitcom Pearl, with Rhea Perlman. Other credits include comedy specials for HBO and the BBC and his famed World Tour programs, such as Billy Connolly's World Tour of Australia, Billy Connolly's World Tour of Ireland, Wales and England and Billy Connolly's World Tour of Scotland, a six-part series documenting his travels in his beloved homeland. He also starred in The Bigger Picture, a series on Scottish art. On stage, Connolly performed in the BBC's production of Androcles and the Lion, the Scottish Opera productions of Die Fleidermaus, and his own play, The Red Runner, which enjoyed packed houses throughout its run at the Edinburgh Festival.

He began his career as a musician, touring with Gerry Rafferty and the folk band The Humblebums, where his humorous introductions and comedic ramblings became an audience favorite. He played his first solo concert in 1971, which led to The Great Northern Welly Boot Show, a mix of music and talk that won considerable acclaim. He went on to release a double album and a #1 hit single, "D.I.V.O.R.C.E." Since then, he has released numerous hit comedy records and published several comedic books. In July 2001, Connolly received an honorary doctorate from the University of Glasgow.
