30 DAYS OF NIGHT

An award winning actor who has established himself as one of the most versatile of his generation, BEN FOSTER (The Stranger) continues to add to a collection of diverse roles in 2007.

Foster is currently in production in Connecticut on Craig Lucas' The Laws of Motion opposite Hilary Swank and Matthew Perry. The project is produced by Plum pictures, Ideal Partners Film Fund and Hilary Swank Prods.

Last year, Foster was seen in Nick Cassavetes' Alpha Dog opposite Sharon Stone and Emile Hirsch, for which he was honored with Movieline's Hollywood Life Breakthrough Performance Award. In the film, Foster plays Jake Mazursky, a crystal meth-addicted skinhead looking to exact revenge for the kidnapping of his brother. The film made its debut at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

Foster most recently starred in James Mangold's 3:10 to Yuma opposite Russell Crowe. He plays the role of outlaw Charlie Prince, a cold-blooded killer with a pair of deadly six guns and a love for using them. A remake of the 1957 classic Western, the film was produced by Cathy Konrad and James Mangold for Lionsgate.

Foster's credits also include the blockbuster film X-Men: The Last Stand, directed by Brett Ratner. Foster portrayed Warren Worthington III/Angel, who quickly became one of the most popular characters in 20th Century Fox's successful franchise. He starred opposite Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, and Famke Janssen. X-Men: The Last Stand was the highest-grossing film of the franchise.

Additional credits include Hostage opposite Bruce Willis; The Punisher opposite Tom Jane; Northfork opposite James Woods, Anthony Edwards and Daryl Hannah; and Barry Levinson's Liberty Heights, which marked his film debut.

On television, Foster shared the SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast for his work in the 2003 season of HBO's critically acclaimed drama "Six Feet Under,” in which he portrayed Russell Corwin for three seasons. He was also a part of the Emmy nominated HBO telefilm "The Laramie Project.” He appeared in several episodes of the cult hit "Freaks and Geeks” as the mentally handicapped student Eli. His lead performance in Showtime's "Bang Bang You're Dead” garnered Foster a Daytime Emmy. Ben lives in Los Angeles with his brother, actor Jon Foster.
