PETER PAN

Recently seen as the deliciously sinister Lucius Malfoy in the blockbuster Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, JASON ISAACS (Captain Hook / Mr. Darling) continues to prove his versatility. Isaacs' more recent turn as the charismatic leading man in the romantic comedy Passionada had a number of critics—including Rex Reed—comparing the actor to "a young Cary Grant.” 

He will reprise the Malfoy role for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth feature installment based on J.K. Rowling's books. Last fall, he appeared as the suave international spy in The Tuxedo. Isaacs was also seen as ranger commander Captain Mike Steele in Ridley Scott's critically acclaimed box office hit Black Hawk Down, and in command of Nicolas Cage in John Woo's Windtalkers. Awaiting release for him are Mike Figgis' Hotel and Stephen Norrington's The Last Minute, in which he sings and dances. 

Isaacs has been working non-stop since his scene-stealing turn as Colonel William Tavington opposite Mel Gibson in The Patriot, a performance that brought him a nomination from the London Film Critics' Circle. Other film credits include Sweet November with Keanu Reeves and The End of the Affair with Julianne Moore. He appeared in the box office giant Armageddon and alongside Dennis Quaid in Dragonheart. In addition, he has made several movies with his friend, director Paul Anderson: the sci-fi thriller Event Horizon; Soldier with Kurt Russell; and the British cult film Shopping. The eagle-eyed will spot him in an uncredited cameo in Anderson's latest, Resident Evil. Isaacs made his feature film debut with Jeff Goldblum and Emma Thompson in The Tall Guy

After graduating from the prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama in London, he starred for two seasons in Capital City, a hit British TV series based on the world of high finance. Additionally, he went on to star as, variously, identical twins (one good, one evil), a post-traumatic stress disordered soldier, an amnesiac, a real-life footballing hero, a gay crime-lord, and two different drug-dealers called Des. On American TV he was in the CBS miniseries The Last Don 2, as a priest who tests the limits of his vows. 

On stage he created the role of Louis in the critically acclaimed Royal National Theatre production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Angels in America - Parts 1 & 2 and has performed to packed houses at the Royal Court Theatre, the Almeida Theatre, the King's Head and five times at the Edinburgh Festival. 

Born in Liverpool, England, Isaacs attended Bristol University where, while studying law, he directed and/or starred in more than 20 theater productions. When not immersing himself in a new character or accent, he returns to his home in London and tries to remember what he normally sounds like.
