An award-winning actor who has established himself as one of the most versatile of his generation, BEN FOSTER (Jake Mazursky) continues to add to a collection of diverse roles in 2006.

Foster's work as Jake in Alpha Dog has already been honored with Movieline's Hollywood Life Breakthrough Performance Award.

He is currently in production on James Mangold's 3:10 to Yuma, opposite Russell Crowe. He plays the role of outlaw Charlie Prince, a cold-blooded killer with a pair of deadly six-guns and a love for using them. The film (a remake of the classic 1957 Western) is produced by Cathy Konrad and James Mangold for Lionsgate. 3:10 to Yuma is scheduled to be released in fall 2007.

Earlier this year, Foster filmed Columbia Pictures' 30 Days of Night, for director David Slade. Shot in New Zealand, 30 Days of Night takes place in a small Alaskan town cloaked in darkness for much of the winter. An evil invades the town and forces the husband and wife team of sheriff and deputy to choose between saving their own lives and saving their town. Foster portrays The Stranger, a Cajun drifter who acts as the foot soldier for the lead vampire Marlow (Danny Huston) and who is sent out to prepare for the vampires' "30 Days of Night” harvest. The feature is being produced by Ghost House Pictures' founders Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.

Foster was last seen in the blockbuster film X-Men: The Last Stand, directed by Brett Ratner. Foster portrayed Warren Worthington III/Angel, a highly anticipated character in 20th Century Fox's successful franchise, joining the X-Men cast that includes Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and Famke Janssen. X-Men: The Last Stand was the highest-grossing film of the franchise.

Addition credits include the action-thriller Hostage, opposite Bruce Willis; cult favorite The Punisher, opposite Thomas Jane; Northfork, opposite James Woods, Anthony Edwards and Daryl Hannah; and Barry Levinson's Liberty Heights, which marked his film debut.

On television, Foster shared the SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast for his work in the 2003 season of HBO's critically acclaimed drama Six Feet Under, in which he portrayed Russell Corwin for three seasons. He was also a part of the Emmy-nominated HBO telefilm The Laramie Project. He appeared as the mentally handicapped student Eli in several episodes of the cult hit Freaks and Geeks. His lead performance in Showtime's Bang Bang, You're Dead garnered Foster a Daytime Emmy.

Foster lives in Los Angeles with his brother, actor Jon Foster.
