JOHN CLEESE (Mercury) has long been one of the industry's most innovative and influential comedic talents. Today's audiences have most recently seen him on the big screen as the new Q in the James Bond movie "Die Another Day”—having been promoted from R in "The World Is Not Enough”—and as Nearly Headless Nick in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone” and "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.” He has also had a recurring role as Lyle Finster on the NBC television sitcom "Will and Grace.”

On the big screen, he has recently appeared in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle,” "George of the Jungle 2” (voice), the remake of "Around the World in Eighty Days,” "Shrek 2” (voice), "Complete Guide to Guys,” "Man About Town” and the forthcoming 21st James Bond feature.

Hailing from England, Cleese first gained international fame for his groundbreaking work as creator, writer and member of the classic "Monty Python's Flying Circus.” First aired on the BBC in 1969, the series was an instant hit in Europe and gained an equally loyal following when it landed on American shores in 1972. The show also spawned the feature film comedies "Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” "The Life of Brian” and "The Meaning of Life.” There have also been subsequent Monty Python videos, CDs and specials.

In 1988, Cleese co-wrote, executive produced and starred in the hit comedy "A Fish Called Wanda,” for which he earned Oscar® and BAFTA nominations for Best Original Screenplay, won a BAFTA Award and received a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Actor. He also co-wrote, produced and starred in the sequel, "Fierce Creatures.”

His additional film acting credits include "The Out-of-Towners,” "Rat Race,” "The Jungle Book,” "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein,” "Silverado,” "Time Bandits” and "The Great Muppet Caper.”

For his work on television, Cleese won an Emmy® Award for his guest role on the comedy series "Cheers” and received another Emmy® nomination for a guest stint on "3rd Rock From the Sun.” He also garnered a BAFTA Award for the acclaimed BBC series "Fawlty Towers,” which he created and starred in.
