RED EYE

CILLIAN MURPHY (Jackson) first garnered international attention for his performance as Jim, the reluctant survivor in Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later,” a sleeper hit thriller set in post-apocalyptic London. Currently, he can be seen as Dr. Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins,” in which he co-stars with Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Katie Holmes. Following "Red Eye,” Murphy stars in Neil Jordan's "Breakfast on Pluto,” playing Patrick "Kitten” Brady, an endearing but deceptively tough young man in 1960's and ‘70's London. Based on the novel by Patrick McCabe, the film opens on November 18.

Murphy just finished production on "The Wind That Shakes the Barley,” directed by Ken Loach. Later this summer, Murphy will begin filming Danny Boyle's sci-fi thriller "Sunshine,” alongside Chris Evans and Michelle Yeoh.

Murphy's filmography also includes John Crowley's dark comedy "Intermission”; Peter Webber's "Girl With a Pearl Earring,” in which he played the young butcher boy vying for the attention of the title character, played by Scarlett Johansson; Anthony Minghella's "Cold Mountain”; Goran Paskaljevic's "How Harry Became a Tree”; John Carney's "On the Edge”; Stephen Bradley's "Sweety Barrett”; William Boyd's "The Trench”; and Nelson Hume's "Sunburn,” which screened at Galway Film Fleadh.

Murphy first made his mark with his stunning performance in the award-winning stage version of "Disco Pigs.” After receiving commendations for Best Fringe Show at the 1996 Dublin Theatre Festival and the Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Festival 1997, "Disco Pigs” went on to tour extensively in Ireland, the UK, Toronto and Australia. Murphy later starred in the film version directed by Kirsten Sheridan.

On stage, Murphy's collaborations with Tony Award-winning director Garry Hyne include "The Country Boy,” "Juno and the Paycock,” and, most recently, "The Playboy of the Western World” at the Gaity Theatre in Dublin. He also starred as Konstantin in the Edinburgh Fest production of "The Seagull,” directed by Peter Stein; as Adam in Neil LaBute's "The Shape of Things” at the Gate Theatre in Dublin; and as Claudio in "Much Ado About Nothing.”

His major television credits include the lead role of Paul Montague in David Yeats' BBC drama "The Way We Live Now.”

In addition, Murphy's short film, "The Watchman,” which he co-wrote with Paloma Beaza, was short-listed for the Turner Classic Movie Short Film Award.
