KEVIN KLINE (Cole Porter), an Academy Award® winner, was most recently seen in The Emperor's Club and Life as a House, which earned him a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Best Actor. Kline has earned equal distinction in the worlds of film and theater.

In addition to his 1988 Oscar® for Best Supporting Actor for his work in A Fish Called Wanda, Kline was nominated for Golden Globe Awards for his roles in Sophie's Choice, Dave, In & Out and Soapdish.

A Julliard graduate, Kline's Broadway credits include Hal Prince's "On the Twentieth Century,” for which he won both Tony and Drama Desk Awards, and "The Pirates of Penzance,” for which he again won a Tony and Drama Desk Award, as well as the Obie Award for Outstanding Achievement by an Actor.

After his acclaimed debut in Alan Pakula's adaptation of William Styron's novel Sophie's Choice, for which he received Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations, Kline began a long-standing creative relationship with writer/director Lawrence Kasdan. Their collaborations included the influential ensemble comedy The Big Chill, the Western Silverado, the offbeat comedy I Love You To Death, the ensemble drama Grand Canyon, and the romantic comedy French Kiss. Other films include Sir Richard Attenborough's Cry Freedom and Ang Lee's The Ice Storm. Kline most recently collaborated with director Irwin Winkler on the critically acclaimed Life as a House.

Kline has lent his vocal talents as Phoebus in the animated features The Hunchback of Notre Dame I and II, as well as voicing Tulio in The Road to El Dorado.

On stage, Kline won rave reviews for his Broadway performance in "Shaw's Arms and the Man,” directed by John Malkovich. He also starred in David Hare's adaptation of Chekov's "Ivanov” at Lincoln Center. He has appeared at the New York Shakespeare Festival in "Richard III,” "Henry V,” "Measure for Measure,” "Much Ado About Nothing” and "Hamlet,” for which he won the Obie Award for Sustained Achievement in Theatre. He directed and starred in a second production of "Hamlet,” which received five Drama Desk nominations, including best director and actor nominations for Kline. Later, he co-directed a televised version of the production for the PBS's Great Performances series.

Last summer, Kline appeared in Mike Nichols' critically acclaimed production of Anton Chekov's "The Seagull” for the Public Theatre's "Shakespeare in the Park.”

Recently, Kevin Kline became the first American actor to receive the Sir John Gielgud Golden Quill Award, awarded for those judged to have extended and enhanced Shakespeare's legacy.
