GARY SINISE'S (Shaw) portrayal of Lt. Dan in Forrest Gump made him a mainstream movie star and earned him nominations for an Academy Award® and a Screen Actors Guild Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Award from the National Board of Review and the Commander's Award from the Disabled American Veterans. He went on to take starring roles in the acclaimed Apollo 13 opposite Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon, the thriller Ransom with Mel Gibson and Rene Russo and Brian De Palma's psychological thriller Snake Eyes. Currently, Sinise is starring as Det. "Mac” Taylor in CBS's wildly successful "CSI: New York.” He was last seen on the big screen in Revolution Studios/Columbia Pictures' The Forgotten with Julianne Moore and The Human Stain for director Robert Benton opposite Anthony Hopkins, Nicole Kidman and Ed Harris.

On the humanitarian front, over the past year, Sinise has traveled to Iraq in support of the troops and, as a result, started Operation Iraqi Children with author Laura Hillenbrand. Through this charitable organization, and with the support of corporate sponsors, schools in the U.S. can visit and learn how to organize their own school drive to collect and send much needed classroom supplies to the children of Iraq. Operation Iraqi Children has also recently established the OIC/Katrina Relief Fund for people who wish to support sending school supplies and other children's needs to those affected by hurricane Katrina.

At the age of 18, the Chicago native co-founded The Steppenwolf Theatre Company of Chicago (along with Terry Kinney and Jeff Perry), where he served as Artistic Director for seven years. He has since starred in more than a dozen productions at the renowned theatre including the role of Tom Joad in "The Grapes Of Wrath," for which he garnered a Tony Award nomination and a Drama Desk Award, as well as "True West,” "Balm In Gilead," "Streamers" and "The Caretaker." He received a Joseph Jefferson Award for Marsha Norman's "Getting Out" at Chicago's Wisdom Theatre. He starred as Stanley Kowalski in "A Streetcar Named Desire” and, more recently, in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" at Steppenwolf and at the Barbican Theatre in London. He brought the production to Broadway in April 2001.

In 1982, Sinise directed the landmark production of Sam Shepard's "True West" at Steppenwolf and in New York, for which he won an Obie Award for directing. In 1996, he also directed Sam Shepard's "Buried Child" which kicked off Steppenwolf's 20th anniversary and continued with a successful run on Broadway where it was nominated for five Tonys, including one for best director. His other directing credits include "Orphans," "Tracers," "Frank's Wild Years" with Tom Waits, "The Miss Firecracker Contest," "Waiting For Parade," "Action," "Road To Nirvana" and "Landscape Of The Body" at The Second Stage in New York. In 1985, he received a Joseph Jefferson Award for his direction of Lyle Kessler's "Orphans," which also played off-Broadway and in London with Albert Finney.

He has also made his mark as a feature film director with Of Mice and Men, which he co-produced and co-starred in with John Malkovich, and Miles From Home starring Richard Gere, Kevin Anderson, Helen Hunt and John Malkovich. Both were screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

On television, he starred in "Path to War” directed by John Frankenheimer on HBO. Other television credits include Showtime's adaptation of Jason Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "That Championship Season" directed by Paul Sorvino, award-winning performances in "Truman" (Golden Globe, CableACE and Screen Actors Guild) and John Frankenheimer's "George Wallace" (Screen Actors Guild, Emmy and CableACE), as well as "My Name Is Bill W" with James Woods, Stephen King's "The Stand” and CBS/Hallmark's "Fallen An
