ERIC BANA (Nero) was first introduced to American audiences in the title role of Mark ”Chopper” Read in the feature film "Chopper,” which premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and was then released in the U.S. to good critical notice after its Australian success. Bana earned awards from the Australian Film Critics Circle and the Australian Film Institute for his portrayal. In 2001, Bana was seen co-starring in Ridley Scott's "Black Hawk Down” as Delta Sgt. First Class "Hoot" Gibson, one of a group of elite U.S. soldiers, opposite Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor and Tom Sizemore. The war epic, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Sony, is based on journalist Mark Bowden's best-selling account of the 1993 U.S. mission in Mogadishu, Somalia. He was also featured in the Australian film "The Nugget” released in 2002.

Bana also starred in the title role of Bruce Banner in "Hulk” for director Ang Lee and Universal Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics character; and as Hector the prince of Troy in Warner Bros' "Troy” for director Wolfgang Petersen. The film was based on Homer's The Iliad and also co-starred Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. He also starred in Steven Spielberg's "Munich,” about the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympics.

He was most recently seen in "The Other Boleyn Girl” with Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson; "Romulus, My Father,” based on Raimond Gaita's best-selling memoir, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival; and Curtis Hanson's "Lucky You,” co-starring Drew Barrymore.

Bana will next be seen in Judd Apatow's "Funny People” opposite Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill, and "The Time Traveler's Wife” opposite Rachel McAdams, based on the best-selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger.

His first film as a director, the drama documentary "Love the Beast,” had its U.S. premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival in April. Starring Bana, Jay Leno, "Top Gear's” Jeremy Clarkson and Dr. Phil, the film explores the meaning of his 25-year-long relationship with his first car and the importance of the bonds that form through a common passion.
