PRIDE AND GLORY

NOAH EMMERICH (Francis Tierney, Jr.) counts "Pride and Glory” as his third collaboration with director Gavin O'Connor. Emmerich previously co-starred with Kurt Russell in O'Connor's "Miracle,” about the U.S. Hockey Team's inspiring Gold Medal triumph at the 1980 Winter Olympics. He and O'Connor first worked together when Emmerich appeared in "Tumbleweeds.”

He most recently starred in Todd Field's award-winning 2006 drama "Little Children,” with Kate Winslet, Jennifer Connelly and Jackie Earle Haley. Emmerich's breakout role came in 1996 in Ted Demme's critically acclaimed feature "Beautiful Girls,” joining an ensemble cast, including Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman and Natalie Portman. Reuniting with Demme, Emmerich then appeared in "Monument Ave.” with Denis Leary, Billy Crudup and Martin Sheen. His next film was Peter Weir's widely praised drama "The Truman Show,” in which Emmerich co-starred with Jim Carrey and Laura Linney.

Emmerich's other notable film credits include Martin Campbell's "Beyond Borders,” with Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen; John Woo's "Windtalkers, with Nicolas Cage; "Frequency,” with Dennis Quaid; and "Cop Land,” with Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta.

In August 2008, Emmerich starred in the off-Broadway debut of Stephen Belber's "Fault Lines,” directed by David Schwimmer as part of the New York Stage and Film Powerhouse Theater season. In 2004, Emmerich starred as Mitch in the Kennedy Center's presentation of Tennessee Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire,” opposite Patricia Clarkson and Amy Ryan, under the direction of Gary Hynes.

Born and raised in New York City, Emmerich graduated with honors from Yale University with a degree in history. He went on to study filmmaking at New York University, where he wrote and directed the short film "The Painter,” which won a Cine Award in Washington, DC, and also screened at the International Film Festival of Barcelona, Spain. His second directing effort, "The Date,” won the Short Comedy Award at Houston's Worldfest Film Festival.
