THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA

In just a few years, BARRY PEPPER has become one of the most sought after young talents in Hollywood. Pepper gained critical attention for his remarkable portrayal of ‘Private Jackson' in the Academy Award and Golden Globe winning feature SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.

Barry just wrapped filming Clint Eastwood's World War II epic FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS for Dreamworks/Warner Bros. He has also completed the feature UNKNOWN with Jim Caviezel and Greg Kinnear.

Pepper executive produced and starred in the title role of ESPN's "3: THE DALE EARNHARDT STORY”, a biopic of the NASCAR star who died in a crash during the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. He was a nominee for the 11th Annual SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries.

The film was shown at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival and Vancouver Film Festival. Barry received a Best Actor nomination for the 24th Annual Genie Awards in Canada as well as eight other nominations for the film. The film also garnered six awards, including Best Actor, for the Sixth Annual Leo Awards which celebrates excellence in British Columbia Film and Television and made the film festival circuits Pepper had a starring role in Buena Vista Films 25TH HOUR for director Spike Lee. Written by David Benioff, 25TH HOUR depicts the last day of freedom for a young man (Edward Norton) before he begins serving a seven-year jail term for drug dealing.
