ANTHONY MACKIE (Tech) – A classically trained actor who consistently brings intensity and intelligence to his work, Anthony Mackie is poised to become one of the foremost talents of his generation.

In addition to "Crossover,” Mackie has several projects coming out this fall. He started off the year going to Sundance with the film "Half Nelson” opposite Ryan Gosling. Both the film and Anthony received rave reviews. The independent film is a feature adaptation of helmer Ryan Fleck's Sundance-winning short film "Gowanus, Brooklyn” and follows a unique relationship between a white schoolteacher, his African-American student and a local drug dealer. "Half Nelson” will be released by ThinkFilm in August, 2006. Then, in September 2006, he will also be seen in Frank E. Flowers ensemble crime drama "Haven” opposite Orlando Bloom and Bill Paxton.

Mackie will then be seen in the Warner Bros. film "We are Marshall” opposite Matthew McConaughey, Matthew Fox and David Strathairn. Thunder Road's Basil Iwanyk is producing along with McG and his Wonderland Sound and Vision shingle. The movie revolves around the events following the 1970 plane crash that killed members of the West Virginia-based Marshall football team, along with most of its coaching staff, sports commentators and many of its local boosters. Mackie plays the role of Nate, a young top football player on the team who, due to injury, stayed behind at Marshall and didn't travel with the team on the fateful trip. He is the centerpiece returning starter that the new team is built around.

Mackie just wrapped production on Ving Rhames' of "3/5 of a Man,” an adaptation of Michael Henry Brown's Off-Broadway play. The story revolves around Nat Turner and the 1831 slave rebellion in Virginia and the fact that the Constitution counted each enslaved black man as 3/5 of a person for the purposes of determining Southern representation in Congress. Turner led the most successful slave rebellion ever but was ultimately lynched along with many other slaves. Mackie will star as Turner.

Mackie also recently shot "Heavens Fall,” opposite David Strathairn, Timothy Hutton and Leelee Sobieski, an independent feature based on the Scottsboro Boys' trials--some of the most volatile court cases in American history. The film premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival.

On stage, he most recently starred in Second Stage's production of Charles Fuller's Pulitzer Prize winning play, "A Soldier's Play” for which he received a Drama League Distinguished Performance Award. Mackie starred opposite Taye Diggs, Steve Pasquale and James MacDaniel. Directed by Jo Bonney, the play is the story of a murder investigation on a Louisiana Army base during World War II -- the victim, a brutal, selfhating black soldier. He also recently starred in Stephen Belber's "McReele” about a freed death-row inmate who runs for senate, at the Roundabout Theatre's Off-Broadway house, The Laura Pels Theatre.

Mackie made an auspicious film debut as Eminem's nemesis -- Clarence ‘Papa Doc' -- in Curtis Hanson's "8 Mile.” His performance caught the attention of Spike Lee, who subsequently cast Mackie in the recent Toronto Film Festival Masters Program selection "Sucker Free City” and Sony Pictures Classics' "She Hate Me.” Mackie also appeared in Clint Eastwood's multi-Academy Award®-winning "Million Dollar Baby” opposite Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood; alongside Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber in Jonathan Demme's "The Manchurian Candidate” (Paramount Pictures); opposite Julianne Moore, Samuel L. Jackson and Edie Falco in "Freedomland” and in "The Man” opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy. Mackie also starred in Rodney Evans' "Brother to Brother,” for which he earned IFP Spirit and Gotham Award nominations for for his performance. The film also garnered the 2004
