INVINCIBLE

GREG KINNEAR (Dick Vermeil) continues to build upon his already impressive resume with roles in the most diverse of projects. With 2006 shaping up to be a very busy year for the Academy Award®- nominated actor, Kinnear can currently be seen in the hit of the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, "Little Miss Sunshine.” The ensemble dark comedy also stars Steve Carell and Toni Collette and is set in the world of children's beauty pageants. The buzz film of the festival, "Little Miss Sunshine” was acquired in a bidding war by Fox Searchlight and was recently released to outstanding reviews.

Next up, Kinnear will star in Richard Linklater's "Fast Food Nation,” based on the best-selling book by Eric Schlosser. Fox Searchlight will distribute the film this fall. Kinnear will also be seen starring in The Weinstein Company's "Unknown,” a thriller in which Kinnear plays one of five men who wake up in a locked-down warehouse with no memory of who they are. Kinnear is currently in production on "Feast of Love,” a drama in which he will star alongside Morgan Freeman.

Within the past two years, Kinnear starred in the dark comedy "The Matador” with Pierce Brosnan, "The Bad News Bears” opposite Billy Bob Thornton, and lent his voice as "Ratchet” in the highly successful animated film "Robots.”

The year 2002 saw the release of the critically acclaimed biopic of actor and comedian Bob Crane, "Auto Focus” for director Paul Schrader; that year also saw Kinnear battling on the big screen opposite Mel Gibson in the feature "We Were Soldiers,” focusing on the Vietnam War battle of La Drang. That year he lit up the small screen as well in the emotion-driven Norman Jewison HBO movie "Dinner with Friends” alongside Toni Collette, Dennis Quaid, and Andie MacDowell.

Some of Kinnear's other credits include the romantic comedy "Someone Like You” with Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman, the Farrelly brothers' comedy "Stuck on You” in which he co-starred with Matt Damon, Sam Raimi's supernatural thriller "The Gift” alongside Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes, and director Neil LaBute's black comedy "Nurse Betty” opposite Renee Zellweger, Morgan Freeman, and Chris Rock.

In 1997, Kinnear starred alongside Jack Nicholson as his unfortunate neighbor Simon in James L. Brooks' Academy Award®-nominated film "As Good as It Gets.” His performance garnered him not only an Academy Award® nomination, but earned him the honor of being named Best Supporting Actor by the National Board of Review; he was also nominated in the same category at the Golden Globes® and the Screen Actors Guild Awards® that year.

Kinnear made his feature film debut in the Sydney Pollack-directed remake "Sabrina” in which he costarred with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond. His performance prompted the trade organization of movie theater owners to name him NATO ShoWest's "Star of Tomorrow.” Following his Oscar®-nominated performance in "As Good as It Gets,” he co-starred in Nora Ephron's romantic hit comedy "You've Got Mail” with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan and Mike Nichol's "What Planet Are You From?” with Gary Shandling and Annette Bening and appeared in a cameo role as Captain Amazing in "Mystery Man.”

Kinnear first gained prominence as the animated, wisecracking host of E! Entertainment Television's "Talk Soup” in 1991. As the first host of "Talk Soup,” he was the master of not one, but of all talk shows with his witty commentary on clips from such programs as "Sally Jesse Raphael,” "Jerry Springer,” and "Montel.” Eventually taking on the additional role of executive producer on the show, Kinnear earned an Emmy Award® and rave reviews and established a cult-like following.

As the popularity of "Talk Soup” grew, Kinnear captured the attention of NBC executives who were searching for a replacement for Bob Costas. In 1994, after three successful seasons
