RESCUE DAWN

STEVE ZAHN (Duane) has received critical praise for his work on both stage and screen. His standout performance in Miramax Films' HAPPY, TEXAS garnered him many accolades, including a Grand Jury Special Actor Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, as well as an Independent Spirit Award for "Best Actor.”

Zahn will next be seen in the comedy STRANGE WILDERNESS, a Happy Madison and Level One film for 20th Century Fox. Zahn was recently featured in Disney's animated blockbuster CHICKEN LITTLE and in BANDIDAS, opposite Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz. Zahn also starred in Paramount Pictures SAHARA, and other credits include SHATTERED GLASS, DADDY DAYCARE and NATIONAL SECURITY. Also, Zahn had two major feature releases: John Dahl's thriller JOY RIDE, and Penny Marshall's RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS.

Zahn provided the voices of "Archie the Bear” in DR. DOOLITTLE 2 and "Monty the Cat” in STUART LITTLE and the sequel. He was featured in Miramax modern day retelling of HAMLET opposite Ethan Hawke. Zahn received critical acclaim for his scene stealing portrayal of "Glen Michaels” in OUT OF SIGHT, helmed by Oscar winning director Stephen Soderbergh. His additional credits include SAVING SILVERMAN, SAFE MEN, YOU'VE GOT MAIL, THE OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION, and the feature adaptation of Eric Bogosian's play "Suburbia,” reprising the role he created in the off-Broadway production.

Zahn's breakthrough performance was in Tom Hanks' directorial debut, THAT THING YOU DO! as "Lenny”. A native of Marshall, MN, Zahn was first introduced to improvisational theater in high school. After completing his freshman year at Gustavus-Adolphus College in Minnesota, he crashed the audition of a local production of "Biloxi Blues,” winning the leading role in the play. Following his debut, he trained for two years at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA, before moving to New York and being cast in Tommy Tune's National Tour of "Bye, Bye, Birdie.” Following "Birdie,” Zahn was cast opposite Ethan Hawke in "Sophistry” at the Playwright's Horizon. There he caught the eye of director Ben Stiller, who cast him in what would be Zahn's feature film debut, REALITY BITES. Zahn is married to actress Robyn Peterman and resides on a farm in the mid-west.
