COLLATERAL

PETER BERG (Richard Weidner) has demonstrated a taste for challenging material, whether as an actor, director, writer or producer. For his acting work, he won critical acclaim for his performance in John Dahl's neo noir thriller "The Last Seduction,” opposite Linda Fiorentino. His other notable film credits as an actor include James Mangold's "Cop Land,” with Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, and Harvey Keitel; "The Great White Hype,” with Samuel L. Jackson; Spike Lee's "Girl 6”; Wes Craven's "Shocker”; "Late For Dinner,” with Marcia Gay Harden; Keith Gordon's "A Midnight Clear”; and the fact-based sci-fi drama "Fire in the Sky.”

Berg made his feature film directorial debut with the cult favorite "Very Bad Things,” starring Cameron Diaz, Jon Favreau, and Christian Slater. Berg went on to direct the actioner "The Rundown,” starring The Rock, Seann William Scott, Rosario Dawson and Christopher Walken. He is currently directing "Friday Night Lights,” based on the bestselling novel about Texas football by H.G. Bissinger. The film stars Billy Bob Thornton and is set for an October 2004 release. Berg also has several film projects in development, including the political thriller "The Kingdom,” to be produced by Michael Mann; "Trap Team,” a script Berg co-wrote with John McLaughlin about an FBI agent's hunt for a serial killer; and a New York fireman heist drama entitled "Truck 44.”

For television, Berg created, wrote, produced and directed the ABC drama series "Wonderland.” He also wrote and directed episodes of David E. Kelley's critically acclaimed series "Chicago Hope,” in which he also starred for three seasons as the brash, hockey-playing surgeon, Dr. Billy Kronk. More recently, he was seen in a recurring role on the hit ABC action series "Alias.”

A native New Yorker, Berg gained an interest in performing at a young age while attending Broadway plays twice a month with his parents. He went on to study theater at Macalester College in Minneapolis before beginning his professional career.
