Oscar® winner JIM BROADBENT joins the "Indiana Jones” cast as Dean Charles Stanforth.

A quintessential British character actor, Broadbent starred in a trio of films in 2001 that launched him onto the global stage. First, he starred as Bridget Jones's father in "Bridget Jones's Diary.” He also won a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Harold Zidler in the Oscar®-nominated musical sensation "Moulin Rouge.” The third film was the biographical drama "Iris,” about the British novelist Iris Murdoch (played by Dame Judi Dench) who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Broadbent won an Oscar® and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his part as Murdoch's devoted husband John Bayley.

Broadbent's most recent films include Edgar Wright's action comedy "Hot Fuzz” (2007), opposite Simon Pegg and Bill Nighy. He has also starred as W.S. Gilbert in Mike Leigh's "Topsy-Turvy” (1999). Before that, he lit up the screen with performances in Richard Loncraine's "Richard III” (1995), Woody Allen's "Bullets Over Broadway” (1994), Mike Newell's "Enchanted April” (1992), and Neil Jordan's "The Crying Game” (1992).

Broadbent began studying art before pursuing his career as an actor and applying to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. He performed on stage with the Royal National Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Company. He worked steadily on stage and in television and made his film debut in 1978 in Jerzy Skolimowski's "The Shout.”

Broadbent will next be seen opposite Colin Firth in "And When Did You Last See Your Father?” He will also make his debut in the Harry Potter series as Horace Slughorn in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” and appear in Iain Softley's fantasy adventure "Inkheart.”
