Since gaining critical attention for his remarkable portrayal as Private Jackson in the Academy AwardÂ® and Golden Globe-winning feature Saving Private Ryan,
BARRY PEPPER (Dan) is one of the most sought after talents in Hollywood. He's since gone on to star in Flags of Our Fathers, as well as The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, for which he was honored at the 2006 Independent Spirit Awards with a Best Supporting Actor nomination. In HBO's 61*, Pepper's performance as the New York Yankees' Roger Maris earned him Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominations, as well as a Critic's Choice Award.
Pepper's many other prominent feature credits include The 25th Hour with Edward Norton, We Were Soldiers opposite Mel Gibson, Knockaround Guys, Green Mile with Tom Hanks, and Enemy of the State, the first time he worked with Will Smith.
As well as his big screen portrayals, Pepper has shined on the small screen. When Pepper starred in the title role of ESPN's 3: The Dale Earnhardt Story, a biopic of the NASCAR star who died in a crash during the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, he was nominated for a SAG Award as Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries. Pepper also executive produced the show.
When Pepper executive produced and starred in The Snow Walker, a gripping tale of love and struggle for survival in the hauntingly beautiful Arctic, he received a Best Actor nomination for a Genie, Canada's equivalent of the Academy Award. The film also garnered six awards, including Best Actor for the Leo Awards that celebrate excellence in British Columbia's Film and Television projects.
Next up for the talented actor are the independent features Princess Ka'iulani and Like Dandelion Dust.
