BLADES OF GLORY

WILLIAM FICHTNER (Darren MacElroy), an actor of extensive talent and range, was recently seen on the big screen in the Academy Award®-winning film "Crash,” from writer-director Paul Haggis, for which he won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble Cast in a Feature Film. Last summer, he also starred opposite Adam Sandler and Chris Rock in the remake of the comedy "The Longest Yard.” Segueing effortlessly between television and feature films, Fichtner was recently seen in HBO's critically acclaimed "Empire Falls,” opposite Paul Newman and Ed Harris. Fichtner's other television roles include NBC's "The West Wing” and ABC's "MDs.”

Currently, Fichtner plays the role of FBI Agent Alexander Mahone on Fox's hit drama series "Prison Break.” His character is as brilliant as the escaped convicts Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) and Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), but as the plot unfolds during the season, viewers learn that he is haunted by his own demons.

Fichtner will next be seen in the comedy "The Amateurs,” opposite Jeff Bridges and Ted Danson, as well as the independent film "First Snow,” with Guy Pearce.

Fichtner had two films premiere at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival – Rodrigo Garcia's "Nine Lives” and DreamWorks' "The Chumscrubber.” Fichtner's additional film credits include Ridley Scott's "Black Hawk Down,” "What's The Worst Thing That Could Happen?,” Wolfgang Petersen's "The Perfect Storm,” "Drowning Mona,” "Ultraviolet” for writer-director Kurt Wimmer, "Passion of Mind,” "Armageddon,” Michael Mann's "Heat,” "Contact,” Doug Liman's "Go,” Steven Soderbergh's "The Underneath,” Agnieszka Holland's "Julie Walking Home,” "Equilibrium,” "The Settlement” alongside John C. Reilly, and Kevin Spacey's directorial debut "Albino Alligator.”

As a member of the Circle Repertory Theatre, Fichtner won critical acclaim for his role in "The Fiery Furnace,” directed by Norman Rene. He has also appeared on the stage in "Raft of the Medusa” at the Minetta Lane Theatre, "The Years” at the Manhattan Theatre Club, "Clothes for a Summer Hotel” at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and "Machinal” at The Public Theatre.

Fichtner currently resides in Los Angeles.
