MAN OF THE YEAR

In a career spanning film, television and theater, JEFF GOLDBLUM (Alan Stewart) is one of the most talented and respected actors of his generation. Goldblum returns to series television for the first time since 1980 (Tenspeed and Brown Shoe) as the lead in the NBC drama Raines. Goldblum plays an eccentric cop who is able to speak with dead victims, which helps him solve their cases. Last year, Goldblum garnered an Emmy nomination for his guest appearance on NBC's Will & Grace.

Next year, Goldblum will begin production in Israel on the film Adam Resurrected for director Paul Schrader. Goldblum will star as the title character of Adam, a stage performer who survives the concentration camps during the time of the Holocaust. The film takes place immediately following the fall of Nazi Germany. Most recently, Goldblum starred with Illeana Douglas, Ed Begley Jr. and Moby in a film that he also produced, Pittsburgh, which recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2006.

Goldblum has recently completed Hal Hartley's independent film Fay Grim, with Parker Posey.

In 2005, Goldblum received critical praise for his return to Broadway, starring in Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman, with Billy Crudup, Zeliko Ivanek and Michael Stuhlberg. He received an Outer Critics Circle Award for his performance and was nominated for a Drama Desk and Drama League Award. The play received a Drama Critics Award and was nominated for Tony, Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk and Drama League awards.

In 2004, Goldblum starred in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou with Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe and Cate Blanchett. Also in 2004, Goldblum received critical attention starring opposite Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber in Showtime's Spinning Boris, directed by Roger Spottiswoode. In 2003, Goldblum starred in War Stories, a compelling two-hour television movie for NBC, about journalists risking their lives while covering conflicts in the Middle East.

In 2002, Goldblum starred in MGM's Igby Goes Down, opposite Susan Sarandon, Ryan Phillippe and Claire Danes. The film was written and directed by Burr Steers, a former acting student of Goldblum's at Playhouse West.

Goldblum's film career began at the age of 17, when he moved to New York City to study acting under Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse. In less than a year, Joseph Papp cast him in the Broadway hit Two Gentlemen of Verona. Soon after, he had his first film audition and was cast as the terrifying rapist in Death Wish. In contrast to that role, the very next week Robert Altman cast Goldblum as the 20-year-old boy wonder in California Split, and asked him to play the mysterious biker/magician in Nashville.

Goldblum's long list of film credits include roles in some of the highest-grossing films of all time, including Steven Spielberg's worldwide box-office success Jurassic Park and Roland Emmerich's science-fiction thriller Independence Day. Other film credits include The Lost World: Jurassic Park; Holy Man; The Prince of Egypt; Chris Colombus' Nine Months; Woody Allen's Annie Hall; Lawrence Kasdan's The Big Chill; Silverado; The Fly; Deep Cover; Paul Mazursky's Next Stop Greenwich Village; Remember My Name; The Right Stuff; Threshold; Between the Lines; Invasion of the Body Snatchers; The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension; Into the Night; and The Tall Guy. On television, Goldblum starred in the Showtime original film Lush Life, with Forest Whitaker and Kathy Baker.

In addition to acting, Goldblum was nominated for an Academy Award® for directing the live action short film Little Surprises. He served on the jury of the 1999 Cannes Film Festival and occasionally plays piano, with Peter Weller on trumpet, in their live-performing jazz band, T
