ADRIEN BRODY (Peter) won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Roman Polanski's THE PIANIST. He is to date the youngest person to have won the Oscar in that category. His portrayal of real-life Holocaust survivor Wladyslaw Szpilman also earned him Best Actor honors from the National Society of Film Critics, the Boston Society of Film Critics, and the CĂ©sar Awards (France's equivalent of the Oscars); and nominations for Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA Awards.

He most recently starred in Peter Jackson's Academy Award-winning epic remake of KING KONG and Allen Coulter's HOLLYWOODLAND. He will next be seen in the highly anticipated period romantic drama MANOLETE for writer/director Menno Meyjes starring opposite PĂ©nelope Cruz as Manuel Rodriguez Sanchez, Spain's most famous bullfighter.

Brody was born and raised in New York City, where he attended the High School for the Performing Arts and then the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He first came to prominence with a starring role in Steven Soderbergh's KING OF THE HILL. He later starred in two features for director Eric Bross, TEN BENNY and RESTAURANT, the latter earning Brody an Independent Spirit Award nomination.

His other films include Elie Chouraqui's HARRISON'S FLOWERS; Ken Loach's BREAD AND ROSES; Terrence Malick's THE THIN RED LINE; Charles Shyer's THE AFFAIR OF THE NECKLACE; Barry Levinson's LIBERTY HEIGHTS; Spike Lee's SUMMER OF SAM; M. Night Shyamalan's THE VILLAGE; and John Maybury's THE JACKET.
