THE ALAMO

Academy Award®- winning writer, actor, director and musician BILLY BOB THORNTON (Davy Crockett) has an extensive and impressive career in motion pictures, television and theater. Charismatic and uniquely talented, Thornton has established himself as one of the most sought after filmmakers of his generation.

Thornton is currently celebrating a high-water mark in his career. Most recently, Thornton starred in and received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his role in the critically acclaimed hit, "Bad Santa.” He is currently in production on "Friday Night Lights” for Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

Showing the versatility of his acting abilities, in 2001, Thornton starred in the caper comedy "Bandits” for director Barry Levinson, which costarred Bruce Willis and Cate Blanchett; the noir "The Man Who Wasn't There” for the Coen brothers; and the heart-wrenching drama "Monster's Ball,” in which he co-starred with Halle Berry, Peter Boyle, and Heath Ledger.

Each of the three performances garnered Thornton unprecedented critical acclaim and resulted in him being named Best Actor of 2001 by the National Board of Review, as well as Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor in a Drama for "The Man Who Wasn't There” and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for "Bandits” and an American Film Institute nomination for Best Actor for "The Man Who Wasn't There.”

Thornton's 1996 release of the critically acclaimed and phenomenally popular feature film "Sling Blade,” which he starred in and directed from an original script he wrote, firmly secured his status as a preeminent filmmaker.

The film, produced by The Shooting Gallery and released by Miramax, also starred Robert Duvall, JT Walsh, Dwight Yoakam, and John Ritter.

Prior to "Sling Blade,” Thornton already had an extensive motion picture credit list.
