Winner of the ShoWest Newcomer of the Year award in 1999, GIOVANNI RIBISI (Miles Haley) has since established himself as a popular screen presence capable of playing a wide variety of roles.

The Dead Girl, which was nominated for Best Feature at the 2007 Independent Spirit Awards, is a quintet of stories about seemingly unrelated people whose lives converge around the murder of a young woman.

His upcoming projects include the independent films The Dog Problem and Gardener of Eden.

Among his best-known films are Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, Anthony Minghella's Cold Mountain, and David Lynch's Lost Highway. Other credits include Flight of the Phoenix, Boiler Room, Gone in Sixty Seconds, The Other Sister, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Suburbia, Heaven, First Love Last Rites, That Thing You Do, The Mod Squad, Masked and Anonymous, and The Big White. He received an Independent Spirit nomination for his performance in Sam Raimi's The Gift.

In addition to his numerous film credits, Ribisi, who began his acting career at the age of nine, also has an impressive list of television guest starring roles on his résumé, from "Highway to Heaven,” "My Two Dads,” and "The Wonder Years,” to more recent roles in "Chicago Hope,” "The X-Files,” "Friends,” and "My Name is Earl.”
