SAHARA

STEVE ZAHN (Al Giordino) was introduced to improvisational theatre in high school. After completing his freshman year at Gustavus-Adolphus College in Minnesota, he crashed the audition of a local production of "Biloxi Blues” and was cast in the leading role.

Following his debut, he trained for two years with the prestigious American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, before moving to New York where he was cast in Tommy Tune's National Tour of "Bye Bye Birdie.”

He was cast opposite Ethan Hawke in "Sophistry” at the Playwrights Horizon, where he caught the eye of director Ben Stiller, who cast him in "Reality Bites,” Zahn's debut film. He worked with Ethan Hawke again in a modern-day retelling of "Hamlet.”

Zahn captivated critics and audiences alike in Tom Hanks directorial debut film, "That Thing You Do.” He has since appeared in numerous films. Zahn was a scene-stealer in his critically acclaimed performance in Steven Soderbergh's "Out of Sight.” He won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Actor for his comic turn in "Happy, Texas.” Other films include "You've Got Mail” with Tom Hanks, "Joy Ride” for director John Dahl, and "Riding in Cars with Boys,” for which Zahn received praise for his performance as a drug-addicted father. More recently, Zahn starred in "Shattered Glass” with Hayden

Christensen and Chloe Sevigny, in "Daddy Daycare” with Eddie Murphy, and in "National Security” with Martin Lawrence. He'll soon team up again with "Sahara” star Penelope Cruz in "Bandidas.”

Zahn has also had fun providing voice over characters - Archie the Bear in "Dr. Dolittle 2” and Monty the Cat in "Stuart Little” and the sequel. Upcoming, he provides the voice of Runt in "Chicken Little.”

Zahn is married to actress Robyn Peterman. They reside on a farm in Kentucky.
