JEFF BRIDGES (Big Z) is one of Hollywood's most successful actors and a fourtime Academy Award® nominee. He earned his first Oscar® nod in 1971 for Best Supporting Actor in Peter Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show co-starring Cybill Shepherd. Three years later, he received his second Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role in Michael Cimino's Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. In 1984, he landed top kudos with a Best Actor nomination for Starman. That performance also earned him a Golden Globe nomination. In 2001, he was honored with another Golden Globe nomination and his fourth Oscar® nomination for his role in The Contender, Rod Lurie's political thriller co-starring Gary Oldman and Joan Allen, in which Bridges played the President of the United States.

Bridges most recently starred in Stick It for Touchstone Pictures. He also reteamed for his second film with director Terry Gilliam, titled Tideland, in which he plays Noah, a drug addicted, has-been rock guitarist.

Bridges is currently in production on Paramount Pictures' and Marvel Studios' big-screen adaptation of Marvel's legendary Super Hero, Iron Man. The film is directed by Jon Favreau and will be released May 2, 2008. Bridges just finished filming A Dog Year for HBO Films/Picturehouse, based on the memoir by Jon Katz. The film is written and directed by George LaVoo and slated for a 2008 release. He will soon appear in The Amateurs, a comedy written and directed by Michael Traeger. In that film, citizens of a small town, under the influence of a man in the midst of a mid-life crisis (Bridges), come together to make an adult film.

The actor's multi-faceted career has cut a wide swathe across all genres. He has starred in numerous box office hits including Gary Ross' Seabiscuit, Terry Gilliam's offbeat comedic drama The Fisher King, the multi-award nominated The Fabulous Baker Boys, The Jagged Edge, Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man and His Dream, Blown Away, Peter Weir's Fearless, and Martin Bell's American Heart, which earned Bridges an IFP/Spirit Award in 1993 for Best Actor.

Bridges' many other acting credits include The Door in the Floor (for which he earned an IFP/Spirit Award nomination for Best Actor), Arlington Road, The Muse, Simpatico, the Coen brothers' cult comedy The Big Lebowski, Ridley Scott's White Squall, Walter Hill's Wild Bill, John Huston's Fat City, The Mirror Has Two Faces, K-PAX, Masked and Anonymous, Stay Hungry, Bad Company, Against All Odds, Cutter's Way, The Vanishing, Texasville, The Morning After, Nadine, Rancho Deluxe, See You In the Morning, Eight Million Ways to Die, The Last American Hero, and Hearts of the West.

In 1983, Bridges founded the End Hunger Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to feeding children around the world. Bridges also produced the End Hunger televent, a three-hour live television broadcast focusing on educating and inspiring action to end world hunger.

Through his company, AsIs Productions, he produced "Hidden in America,” which starred his brother Beau. That television movie, produced for Showtime, was nominated for two Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Beau Bridges. Current AsIs projects in development include The Giver, based on Lois Lowry's Newbery Award-winning novel.

One of Bridges' true passions is photography. Bridges' photos have been featured in several magazines, including Premiere and Aperture. He has also had gallery exhibits of his work in New York at the George Eastman House, in Los Angeles, London, and San Diego. In the fall of 2003, powerHouse Books published Pictures: Photographs By Jeff Bridges, a hardcover book containing a compilation of photos taken on numerous film locations over the years, to much critical acclaim. Proceeds from the book are donated to the Motion Picture & Tel
