COLLATERAL

BRUCE McGILL (Pedrosa) has been one of the industry's most recognizable and prolific character actors for more than 25 years. Currently, he is commuting between sets while simultaneously working on Ron Howard's "Cinderella Man,” starring Russell Crowe, and "Elizabethtown,” for director Cameron Crowe. He also stars in the independent feature "Slow Burn,” with Ray Liotta and Mekhi Phifer.

McGill first came to fame when he rode his motorcycle up the staircase of the frat house as D-Day in the classic "National Lampoon's Animal House.” "Collateral” marks McGill's third big-screen collaboration with director Michael Mann following "Ali” and "The Insider.” Earlier in his career, he had also worked with Mann as a recurring character on the series "Miami Vice.”

McGill has appeared in more than 60 motion pictures, including "Runaway Jury,” "Matchstick Men,” "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde,” "The Sum of All Fears,” "Shallow Hal,” "Exit Wounds,” "The Legend of Bagger Vance,” "Lawn Dogs,” "Rosewood,” "Courage Under Fire,” "Timecop,” "A Perfect World,” "Cliffhanger,” "My Cousin Vinny,” "Silkwood,” "The Hand” and "Handle With Care,” in which he made his feature film debut.

On television, McGill has been seen in numerous miniseries and telefilms, as well as series regular and guest roles. His most recent longform credits include "Running Mates,” and Tommy Lee Jones' directorial debut, "The Good Old Boys.” He also portrayed a trio of real-life characters in three HBO movies: Yankee manager Ralph Houk in Billy Crystal's "61*”; LBJ's cabinet member George Ball in John Frankenheimer's final film, "Path to War”; and CNN newscaster Peter Arnett in "Live From Baghdad.”

Hailing from Texas, McGill earned a BFA in acting from the University of Texas and began his career on the stage. He made his professional debut as a member of Rhode Island's Trinity Square Repertory Company. Relocating to New York, McGill appeared in the New York Shakespeare Festival's presentation of "Hamlet,” produced by the legendary Joseph Papp. This began a long association with Papp and the NYSF, which encompassed roles in such classics as "Henry V” and "Othello.” On Broadway, McGill co-starred in the 22-month run of the musical "My One and Only.” His other theatre work includes performances at New York's Ensemble Studio Theatre, with the National Shakespeare Company in Washington, DC, and at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
