Kline was last seen starring as Cole Porter in Irwin Winkler's romantic musical drama, De-Lovely. Kline had also teamed with Winkler in the drama Life as a House. Kline will soon be seen in Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Shakespeare's As You Like It and Robert Altman's ensemble film A Prairie Home Companion.

A Julliard graduate, Kline made his Broadway debut playing Vershinin in Anton Chekov's "The Three Sisters” for John Houseman's The Acting Company, of which he is a founding member. His other Broadway credits include Hal Prince's "On the Twentieth Century,” for which he won both a Tony and a Drama Desk Award, and "The Pirates of Penzance,” for which he again won a Tony and a Drama Desk Award, as well an Obie Award for Outstanding Achievement by an actor.

Kline won rave reviews for his Broadway performance in Shaw's "Arms and the Man” directed by John Malkovich and starred in Gerry Gutierrez's production of Chekov's "Ivanov” at Lincoln Center. His roles at the New York Shakespeare Festival have included Richard in "Richard III,” Henry in "Henry V,” Duke Vincentio in "Measure for Measure,” Benedick in "Much Ado About Nothing” and the title role in "Hamlet,” for which he won an 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 "Great Performances” series. Kline appeared opposite Meryl Streep in Mike Nichols' critically acclaimed production of Chekov's "The Seagull,” for the Public Theater's "Shakespeare in the Park" series. He recently won a Drama Desk award for his performance as Falstaff in Lincoln Center Theater's production of "Henry IV.”
