Veteran actor ROBERT DUVALL (Burt Grusinsky) received his first Academy Award® nomination as Best Supporting Actor for his role as Corleone Family legal advisor Tom Hagen in The Godfather. In 1979, Duvall earned a second Oscar® nomination as Best Supporting Actor for his role as the Custer-like Kilgore in Apocalypse Now. The next year, he drew yet another Academy Award® nomination, this time for Best Actor as the macho Marine pilot Bull Meechum in The Great Santini. He was honored with the Academy Award® as Best Actor for the 1983 release Tender Mercies. He was nominated again for The Apostle (a film he wrote and directed), won a Golden Globe for Stalin and received a Globe nomination as well as his sixth Oscar® nomination for A Civil Action.

Duvall formed Butchers Run Films so that he could become more actively involved in all aspects of film and television development and production. In June of 2006, its miniseries, "Broken Trail,” aired on AMC to 10 million viewers. "Broken Trail” recently garnered 16 Emmy nominations as well as three Golden Globe nominations and a Directors Guild of America Award. The company's first co-production, A Family Thing, in which Duvall co-stars, earned a Humanitas Award. He executive produced the TNT Original "The Man Who Captured Eichmann,” in which Duvall portrayed the chillingly remorseless Nazi bureaucrat, Adolph Eichmann. In the beginning of 2001, he went to Argentina to direct, write, produce, and star in Assassination Tango. 

He most recently starred in Curtis Hanson's Lucky You opposite Drew Barrymore and Eric Bana.
