FEAST OF LOVE

Academy Award® nominated GREG KINNEAR (Bradley) continues to build upon his already impressive resume with roles in the most diverse of projects. In 2006, he headed the cast of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, the ensemble comedy that went from an indie Sundance hit to an Oscar®-winning phenomenon; starred as famed Philadelphia Eagles coach Dick Vermeil in INVINCIBLE, starring with Mark Wahlberg in the true-life tale of Vince Papale, the 30 year-old bartender who won a spot in the NFL in Vermeil's open tryouts; and played a burger executive in Richard Linklater's FAST FOOD NATION, based on the best-selling book by Eric Schlosser.

Kinnear has also recently starred in the dark comedy, THE MATADOR with Pierce Brosnan, THE BAD NEWS BEARS opposite Billy Bob Thornton, and lent his voice to the role of "Ratchet” in the highly successful animated film, ROBOTS.

2002 saw the release of the critically-acclaimed biopic of actor and comedian Bob Crane, AUTO FOCUS for director Paul Schrader; that year also saw Kinnear battling opposite Mel Gibson in the Vietnam drama WE WERE SOLDIERS. That year he lit up the the small screen as well in the emotion-driven Norman Jewison HBO movie "Dinner with Friends” alongside Toni Collette, Dennis Quaid, and Andie MacDowell. Some of Kinnear's other credits include the romantic comedy SOMEONE LIKE YOU with Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman, the Farrelly brothers' comedy STUCK ON YOU in which he co-starred with Matt Damon, Sam Raimi's supernatural thriller THE GIFT alongside Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes, and director Neil LaBute's black comedy NURSE BETTY opposite Renee Zellweger, Morgan Freeman, and Chris Rock.

In 1997, Kinnear starred alongside Jack Nicholson as his unfortunate neighbor Simon in James L. Brooks' Academy Award® nominated film AS GOOD AS IT GETS. His performance garnered him not only an Academy Award® nomination, but earned him the honor of being named Best Supporting Actor by the National Board of Review; he was also nominated in the same category at the Golden Globes® and The Screen Actors Guild Awards that year.

Kinnear made his feature film debut in the Sydney Pollack-directed remake SABRINA with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond. His performance prompted the trade organization of the movie theatre owners to name him NATO ShoWest's "Star of Tomorrow.” Following his Oscar®-nominated performance in AS GOOD AS IT GETS, he co-starred in Nora Ephron's hit comedy YOU'VE GOT MAIL with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, Mike Nichol's WHAT PLANET ARE YOU FROM? with Gary Shandling and Annette Bening, and appeared in a cameo role as ‘Captain Amazing' in MYSTERY MEN.

Kinnear first gained prominence as the animated, wisecracking host of E! Entertainment Television's "Talk Soup” in 1991. Eventually taking on the additional role of executive producer on the show, Kinnear earned an Emmy® Award, rave reviews, and established a cult-like following. In 1994, after three successful seasons with "Talk Soup,” Kinnear left the show permanently and became the host and executive producer of his own NBC late-night talk show "Later with Greg Kinnear.”

Kinnear grew up virtually all over the world as his family followed his State Department father to disparate locales such as Logansport, Indiana; Washington, D.C.; Beirut, Lebanon; and Athens, Greece. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.
