RYAN PHILLIPPE (Eric O'Neill) has established himself as one of
Hollywood's most versatile young talents. As an actor, Phillippe has starred in many
diverse roles, beginning with his first film, Disney's White Squall, which enabled him to
work with director Ridley Scott. Phillippe has had the opportunity to work with
exceptional actors and directors. Those roles included Little Boy Blue, with Nastassja
Kinski, Gregg Araki's Nowhere (the third film in Araki's controversial trilogy);
Homegrown, with Billy Bob Thornton; and Playing by Heart, with the ensemble cast of
Sean Connery, Angelina Jolie and Gena Rowlands.
Starring roles soon followed with the Columbia box-office smash I Know What
You Did Last Summer; Cruel Intentions; and Miramax's 54, with Mike Myers.
In addition, Phillippe starred in Robert Altman's OscarĀ®-nominated film Gosford
Park; Igby Goes Down, with Susan Sarandon and Kieran Culkin; Antitrust, co-starring
Tim Robbins; Paramount Classics' Company Man, with Sigourney Weaver; Artisan's
The Way of the Gun; and Miramax's The I Inside.
Phillippe can most recently be seen in Clint Eastwood's film Flags of Our
Fathers, for DreamWorks and Warner Bros. Prior, Phillippe was seen in Lionsgate
Films' award-winning feature Crash, for director Paul Haggis, about a group of strangers
who are brought together by a car accident.
Phillippe recently completed production on Kimberly Peirce's Stop Loss, filmed
in Austin, Texas, for Paramount Pictures. Back home in Texas after fighting in Iraq, a
soldier (Phillippe) refuses to return to battle despite the government mandate requiring
him to do so. He also recently completed production on two independent features—Five
Fingers, co-starring Laurence Fishburne, and Chaos, about two cops in pursuit of an
accomplished bank robber.
With his partner, David Siegal, Phillippe has also formed the production company
Lucid Films, housed by Intermedia Films. Lucid Films produces projects for all
mediums. The company's first production is White Boys Shuffle.
