THE GOOD GERMAN

BEAU BRIDGES (Colonel Muller) has been repeatedly honored for his work in films and on television during a career that has spanned more than four decades. In 1990, he was named Best Supporting Actor by the National Society of Film Critics for his performance in "The Fabulous Baker Boys,” in which he starred with his brother, Jeff. In 1992, he earned an Emmy and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his work in "Without Warning: The James Brady Story.” The following year, he won another Emmy and Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in "The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Cheerleader-Murdering Mom.” He gained a third Emmy Award in 1997, again for Best Supporting Actor, for his work in "The Second Civil War.” In addition, he has been Emmy-nominated for his performances in "We Were the Mulvaneys,” "P.T. Barnum,” "Inherit the Wind,” "Hidden in America,” "Kissinger and Nixon” and "The Outer Limits.” He has also received Golden Globe nominations for the telefilm "Losing Chase” and, earlier in his career, for the feature "For Love of Ivy.”

Currently, Bridges has a regular role on the hit Sci-Fi Channel series "Stargate SG1.” On the big screen, he will next be seen in the film version of the classic "Charlotte's Web.”

The son of Lloyd Bridges, Beau made his feature film debut at age eight in "The Red Pony,” and also appeared in his father's television series, "Sea Hunt.” In 1967, Bridges played his first adult role in the movie "The Incident,” and he has since worked virtually nonstop. His film credits include Norman Jewison's "Gaily, Gaily”; Hal Ashby's "The Landlord”; Peter Ustinov's "Hammersmith is Out,” with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton; Sidney Lumet's "Child's Play”; "The Other Side of the Mountain”; "Two-Minute Warning”; "Greased Lightning”; "Norma Rae,” with Sally Field; "Night Crossing”; "Heart Like a Wheel”; "The Hotel New Hampshire”; Arthur Hiller's "Married to It”; and "Jerry Maguire.” He was more recently seen in the independent features "Sordid Lives,” and "The Ballad of Jack and Rose.”

On the stage, Bridges appeared in the Broadway productions of William Inge's "Where's Daddy?” and Peter Ustinov's "Who's Who in Hell.” His other theater work includes the original productions of Daniel Berrigan's "The Trial of the Catonsville Nine” and Jane Anderson's "Looking for Normal.”

Behind the camera, Bridges has directed the films "The Wild Pair” and "Seven Hours to Judgment,” also starring in both. For television, his directing credits include the telefilms "Secret Sins of the Father,” starring Lloyd Bridges, and "The Thanksgiving Promise,” which starred three generations of Bridges: Lloyd, Beau and Beau's son, Jordan.
