SAM ROCKWELL (Zaphod Beeblebrox), known for his dynamic leading performances in the independent film world, has made a successful transition to starring roles in mainstream films. Rockwell was recently seen in Ridley Scott's comedy-drama "Matchstick Men,” co-starring with Nicolas Cage in the comic tale of two con men. Rockwell also starred in the P.G. Woodhouse comedy "Piccadilly Jim,” opposite Tom Wilkinson, Frances O'Connor, Brenda Blethyn and Amanda Peet. He will next be seen in "Jarhead” for director Sam Mendes.

Previously, Rockwell won critical praise, as well as the Berlin Film Festival's Best Actor Award and Movieline's Breakthrough Performance of the Year Award, for his portrayal of Chuck Barris in George Clooney's "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” Rockwell has created memorable characters in a string of hit films including: the Russo brothers' comedy "Welcome to Collinwood” opposite George Clooney, Patricia Clarkson, Jennifer Esposito and William H. Macy; David Mamet's "Heist,” opposite Gene Hackman, Rebecca Pidgeon and Danny Devito; the blockbuster "Charlie's Angels” with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu; and Frank Darabont's Oscar®-nominated "The Green Mile,” opposite Tom Hanks. Rockwell also appeared in the box-office hit, "Galaxy Quest.”

Earlier in his career, Rockwell first gained considerable notice in three independent films: John Duigan's "Lawn Dogs,” for which he won Best Actor awards at both the Montreal and Barcelona Film Festivals; John Hamburg's "Safe Men”; and Saul Rubinek's dark comedy "Jerry and Tom,” in which he starred as a used-car salesman who moonlights as a part-time hit man.

Rockwell's additional big-screen credits include Woody Allen's "Celebrity”; Michael Hoffman's "A Midsummer Night's Dream” with Kevin Kline and Michelle Pfeiffer; Tom DiCillo's "Box of Moonlight”; Peter Cohen's "Drunks” with Richard Lewis, Parker Posey and Faye Dunaway; Paul Schrader's "Light Sleeper”; Uli Edel's "Last Exit to Brooklyn”; and his feature film debut in Francis Ford Coppola's "Clown House” while he was still a student at the High School of the Performing Arts.

On stage, he was most recently seen in "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” opposite Eric Bogosian. The Labyrinth Theater Company production ran at the Public Theater and was directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Rockwell has appeared in "Face Divided” as part of the EST Marathon series, as well as the Off-Broadway production of Mike Leigh's "Goosepimples.”
