BODY OF LIES

RUSSELL CROWE (Ed Hoffman) is one of the most honored actors of our time. In 2001, he won an Academy Award® for Best Actor for his work in the Oscar®-winning Best Picture "Gladiator,” which marked his first collaboration with Ridley Scott. His performance as Maximus, the Roman general-turned-gladiator, also brought Crowe Golden Globe, BAFTA Award and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® nominations. Additionally, he received Best Actor honors from several critics organizations, including the Broadcast Film Critics and London Film Critics Circle.

Crowe's Oscar® win for "Gladiator” was one of three consecutive Academy Award® nominations for Best Actor. The year before, he earned his first Oscar® nod for his role in Michael Mann's "The Insider.” For his portrayal of tobacco company whistleblower Dr. Jeffrey Wigand, Crowe also won Best Actor Awards from the Los Angeles Film Critics, Broadcast Film Critics, National Society of Film Critics and the National Board of Review, and garnered Golden Globe, BAFTA Award and SAG Award® nominations.

Crowe received his third Oscar® nomination in 2002 for his portrayal of troubled Nobel Prize winner John Forbes Nash, Jr. in the Best Picture Oscar® winner "A Beautiful Mind,” directed by Ron Howard. He also won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA Award, a SAG Award®, and his third consecutive Critics' Choice Award from the Broadcast Film Critics for his work in the film. He later reunited with Howard to play unlikely boxing champion James J. Braddock in the inspiring Depression-era drama "Cinderella Man,” for which Crowe gained Golden Globe and SAG Award® nominations and won an Australian Film Institute Award. In addition, Crowe earned a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as Captain Jack Aubrey in Peter Weir's "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.”

He more recently re-teamed with director Ridley Scott to star in the crime drama "American Gangster,” opposite Denzel Washington, and in "A Good Year,” with Albert Finney. Crowe also starred in the James Mangold-directed Western "3:10 to Yuma,” alongside Christian Bale.

Crowe has a wide range of films upcoming, including Kevin Macdonald's "State of Play,” in which he joins an ensemble cast, including Helen Mirren and Ben Affleck; and "Nottingham,” a different perspective of the Robin Hood legend, which will be his fifth outing with director Ridley Scott.

Born in New Zealand, Crowe was raised in Australia, where he was first recognized for his work on the screen. He was honored for three consecutive years by the Australian Film Institute (AFI), beginning in 1991 when he was nominated for Best Actor in a Lead Role for "The Crossing.” The following year, he won the AFI's Best Supporting Actor Award for "Proof,” and in 1992 he received Best Actor Awards from both the AFI and the Australian Film Critics Circle for his performance in the controversial feature "Romper Stomper,” which brought him international attention.

Crowe made his American film debut in Sam Raimi's 1995 Western "The Quick and the Dead,” in which he co-starred with Gene Hackman, Sharon Stone and Leonardo DiCaprio. He went on to receive widespread acclaim for his performance as vice cop Bud White in Curtis Hanson's award-winning crime drama "L.A. Confidential.” His additional film credits include "Proof of Life,” "Mystery, Alaska,” "Virtuosity,” "Heaven's Burning,” "Breaking Up,” "Rough Magic,” "The Sum of Us,” "For the Moment,” "Love in Limbo,” "The Silver Brumby,” "The Efficiency Expert” and "Prisoners of the Sun.”
