THE NIGHT LISTENER

An Academy Award-winning actor and a multiple Grammy-winning performer unparalleled in the scope of his imagination, ROBIN WILLIAMS continues to add to his repertoire of indelible characters.

In 1997, Williams received Academy and Screen Actors Guild awards for his performance as Sean Maguire, the therapist who counsels Matt Damon's title character -- a math genius -- in Gus Van Sant's Good Will Hunting. The Academy previously nominated Williams for best actor in The Fisher King, Dead Poets Society, and Good Morning Vietnam. Williams garnered a special honor from the National Board of Review for his performance opposite Robert DeNiro in Awakenings. In 2004, Williams received the prestigious Career Achievement Award from the Chicago International Film festival and, in 2005, the HFPA honored him with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.

Williams can currently be seen starring in Barry Sonnenfeld's Sony Pictures comedy, "R.V." The film has remained on the Top Ten Domestic Box Office chart since opening in April 2006.

He will next appear opposite Toni Collette in Patrick Stettner's "The Night Listener," which Miramax is releasing in August 2006. Based on the acclaimed novel by Armistead Maupin, "The Night Listener" is a haunting, suspense-filled mystery about truth, lies and storytelling.

Later this year, Williams will star opposite Ben Stiller in Twentieth Century Fox's film "Night at the Museum." He also lends his award-winning vocal talents to the Warner Bros. animated film, "Happy Feet."

Williams recently completed shooting Barry Levinson's "Man of the Year,” as well as Warner Bros.' "August Rush” with Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and Terrence Howard. He is currently in production on "License to Wed," opposite Mandy Moore, for director Ken Kwapis.

Robin Williams first captured the attention of the world as Mork from Ork on the hit series Mork & Mindy. Born in Chicago and raised in Michigan and California, he trained at New York's Julliard School under John Houseman. Williams made his cinematic debut as the title character in Robert Altman's Popeye. Additional early motion picture credits include Paul Mazursky's Moscow on the Hudson, in which he played a Russian musician who decides to defect, and The World According to Garp, George Roy Hill's adaptation of John Irving's acclaimed best-selling novel about a writer and his feminist mother.

Williams' filmography includes a number of blockbusters. In 1993, he starred in Chris Columbus' Mrs. Doubtfire. For Mike Nichols, Williams portrayed 'Armand Goldman' in The Birdcage, for which the cast won a SAG ensemble award. In 1996, both The Birdcage and Jumanji reached the $100 million mark in the USA in exactly the same week. Williams went on to assume the dual roles of Peter Pan/Peter Banning in Steven Spielberg's Hook, play a medical student who treats patients with humor in Patch Adams and star in Disney's Flubber.

In a departure from the usual comedic and family fare he is best known for, Williams collaborated with two accomplished young directors on dramatic thrillers. For Christopher Nolan, he starred opposite Al Pacino as reclusive novelist 'Walter Finch,' the primary suspect in the murder of a teenaged girl in a small Alaskan town, in Insomnia. In Mark Romanek's One Hour Photo, Williams played a photo lab employee who becomes obsessed with a young suburban family.

Using only his voice, Williams created one of the most vivid characters in recent memory - the 'Blue Genie of the Lamp' in Disney's Aladdin. The performance redefined how animations were voiced. Audio versions of his one-man shows and the children's record "Pecos Bill," have won him five Grammy Awards. Most recently Williams lent his vocal talents to the blockbuster hit animated feature Robots.

Williams' stage credits include a landmark production of Samue
