THE KINGDOM

One of the most respected character actors of our time, CHRIS COOPER (Grant Sykes) was recognized in 2003 with an Academy Award® and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of John Laroche in Columbia Pictures' Adaptation., written by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Spike Jonze. The film, loosely based on Susan Orlean's book "The Orchid Thief,” follows a sexually frustrated screenwriter's attempt to adapt Orlean's anecdotal book for the screen. Cooper was also recognized for his performance in this film by numerous critics associations, including the Broadcast Film Critics, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and Toronto Film Critics Association.

Cooper will soon be seen in the upcoming film Marriage, an independent film starring Pierce Brosnan and Rachel McAdams. Recently, the actor was seen in the Sony Classics film Capote, with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener, as Alvin Dewey. Cooper played the lead investigator in charge of the high-profile murders in Kansas that were the basis of Truman Capote's classic book "In Cold Blood.” The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews and, shortly thereafter, at the New York Film Festival.

Cooper was recently seen in Universal Pictures' thriller Breach, with Ryan Phillippe and Laura Linney, starring as infamous spy Robert Hanssen. He also had a strong supporting role in 2005's Jarhead, for director Sam Mendes and Universal Pictures, and Syriana, for writer/director Stephen Gaghan and Warner Bros.

In 2004, Cooper was seen in Newmarket Film's Silver City, a political drama and murder mystery that chronicled the story of a small town in Colorado and the events leading up to a local election. Written and directed by John Sayles, the impressive cast included Maria Bello, Thora Birch, Richard Dreyfuss, Tim Roth, Daryl Hannah and Billy Zane. The film was screened at the Toronto Film Festival.

In 2003, Cooper starred in Universal Pictures' Seabiscuit, based on the bestselling book. Cooper was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award for his portrayal of Seabiscuit's trainer, Tom Smith. Seabiscuit was directed by Gary Ross and also starred Tobey Maguire and Jeff Bridges. In the same year, Cooper was nominated for an Emmy Award for his supporting performance in the HBO film My House in Umbria, starring Maggie Smith.

In 2002, Cooper was seen in Universal Pictures' The Bourne Identity, in a strong supporting role as the mastermind of the CIA's controversial clandestine operation Treadstone. In 2004, he appeared in flashback scenes in the second installment, The Bourne Supremacy.

In 1999, Cooper received a Screen Actors Guild award for his supporting performance alongside Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening in DreamWorks' Academy Award®-winning film American Beauty. In a stunning and dramatic display, Cooper portrayed a stern ex-Marine colonel who persistently monitored his son's every move.

In 1999, Cooper also starred as the father of an amateur rocket enthusiast in the acclaimed coming-of-age drama October Sky, which was screened with great notice at the 1999 Venice and Deauville film festivals. He had previously earned a Best Actor nomination in 1997 from the Independent Spirit Awards for his work in John Sayles' Lone Star.
