BILLY CONNOLLY (McSquizzy) who is best known to U.S. audiences for his comedic work, gave a moving dramatic performance as the loyal servant John Brown in the highly acclaimed Mrs. Brown. A stand-up comedian who has toured the world, Connolly's recent film credits include Garfield 2, Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Last Samurai and Timeline. His previous film credits include Peter Kosminsky's White Oleander, Troy Duffy's The Boondock Saints, Stephen Metcalfe's Beautiful Joe, Barry Levinson's An Everlasting Piece, Stanley Tucci's The Impostors, Absolution with Richard Burton, Bullshot, Water with Michael Caine, Crossing The Line with Liam Neeson, The Muppet Treasure Island, Gabriel & Me, "Gentleman's Relish” and The Man Who Sued God, as well as such acclaimed BBC productions as "Down Among The Big Bad Boys” and "Deacon Brodie.” His voice is also featured on the Disney animated film Pocahontas.

Connolly is most recognizable from his hit television series "Head of the Class,” which was later spun off into his own series "Billy.” His other television work includes appearances on the sitcom "Pearl” with Rhea Perlman and Malcolm McDowell, comedy specials for HBO and BBC, as well as "Billy Connolly's World Tour of Scotland,” a six-part series documenting a tour of his beloved homeland, and "The Bigger Picture,” a series on Scottish art. Connolly has also released numerous home videos, including "25 BC,” "Billy and Albert,” "An Audience With Billy Connolly,” "Billy Connolly Live” and "Live ‘94.”

Connolly's eclectic career also includes performances in the BBC's "Androcles and the Lion,” the Scottish Opera production of "Die Fleidermaus” and his own play "The Red Runner,” which was performed to packed houses at the Edinburgh Festival. He began his career as a musician, touring with Gerry Rafferty and the folk band The Humblebums. Connolly's humorous introduction soon became an audience favorite and, in 1971, he played his first solo concert. This led to "The Great Northern Welly Boot Show,” a mixture of music and talk that established his talent as a popular entertainer. He went on to release a double album and a No. 1 hit single, "D.I.V.O.R.C.E.” Since then, he has released numerous hit comedy records and published several comedic books.
