SURF'S UP

JAMES WOODS (Reggie Belafonte) has been impressing audiences for over three decades with his compelling performances. He has moved effortlessly from big box office studio films to festival-celebrated independent features, in a wide spectrum from comedy to drama. Woods was also just seen in Pretty Persuasion and the outrageous comedy Be Cool, the sequel to Get Shorty. He currently stars on the hit CBS television series "Shark.”

The son of a US Intelligence officer, he earned a scholarship to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, completed a degree in political science, and then headed off to New York to pursue a career on the stage. After appearing in a handful of New York City theater productions, Woods landed his first film role in All the way Home and followed that up with supporting roles in The Way We Were, and The Choirboys. However, it was Woods cold blooded performance as the cop killer in The Onion Field that captured both audiences and critics' attention.

Other film work includes Once Upon a Time in America, Salvador, Casino, Nixon, John Q, The Virgin Suicides, Riding in Cars with Boys, Northfolk, Contact, Any Given Sunday, and Scary Movie 2. Woods has also starred on television in numerous projects, including "The Rudy Giuliani Story,” "Indictment: The McMartin Trial,” "Citizen Cohn,” "My Name is Bill W.,” and "Promise,” all roles that earned him an Emmy Award or nomination.

Among his numerous stage, screen, and television awards, Woods has received Oscar® nominations for his work in Salvador and Ghosts of Mississippi. He was honored with the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini- Series or Motion Picture Made for TV for his performance in "In Love and War”; he has been nominated for eight other Golden Globes.
