THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD

SAM ROCKWELL (Charley Ford), known for his dynamic leading performances in the independent film world, began 2007 with a starring role in the ensemble drama "Snow Angels,” which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Among his more recent projects are the cultclassic adaptation of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy” and Ridley Scott's "Matchstick Men,” a crime thriller with comic shading, co-starring Nicolas Cage.

Previously, Rockwell earned critical praise and won the Berlin Film Festival's Best Actor Award as well as Movieline's Breakthrough Performance of the Year for his portrayal of Chuck Barris in George Clooney's "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” He has created memorable characters in numerous films, such as the Russo brothers' comedy "Welcome to Collinwood,” opposite George Clooney, Patricia Clarkson, Jennifer Esposito and William H. Macy; David Mamet's "Heist,” opposite Gene Hackman, Rebecca Pidgeon and Danny DeVito; the blockbuster "Charlie's Angels,” with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu; Frank Darabont's Oscar-nominated drama "The Green Mile,” with Tom Hanks; and the box office hit "Galaxy Quest.”

Earlier in his career, Rockwell gained considerable notice in three independent films: John Duigan's "Lawn Dogs,” for which he won Best Actor Awards at both the Montreal and Barcelona Film Festivals; John Hamburg's "Safemen”; and Saul Rubinek's dark comedy "Jerry and Tom,” in which he starred as a used-car salesman who moonlights as a part-time hit man. His additional screen credits include Woody Allen's "Celebrity,” Michael Hoffman's "A Midsummer Night's Dream,” with Kevin Kline and Michelle Pfeiffer; Tom DiCillo's "Box of Moonlight”; Peter Cohen's "Drunks,” with Richard Lewis, Parker Posey and Faye Dunaway; Paul Schrader's "Light Sleeper”; Uli Edel's "Last Exit to Brooklyn”; and his feature debut in Roman Coppola's "Clownhouse,” while he was still a student at the High School of the Performing Arts.

On stage, Rockwell most recently starred in the Public Theater production of "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot,” directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman. He has also performed at Williamstown Theater Festival in "The Dumb Waiter” and "Hot L Baltimore,” both directed by Joe Mantello.

Rockwell's upcoming projects include the comedy drama "Choke,” with Anjelica Huston, and Ron Howard's drama "Frost/Nixon,” both scheduled for a 2008 release.
