THOMAS HADEN CHURCH (Johnny Whitefeather) received an Academy Award® nomination for his role as Jack, starring opposite Paul Giamatti in Alexander Payne's critically acclaimed film "Sideways.” A Fox Searchlight Pictures release, "Sideways” premiered at the 29th Toronto International Film Festival and went on to win numerous awards in 2004 and 2005, including a Golden Globe for Best Comedy Picture, Broadcast Film Critics Award for Best Picture, a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Best Ensemble Cast and six Independent Spirit Awards. Church was also honored as Best Supporting Actor by the Broadcast Film Critics and the Independent Spirit Awards.

Church recently starred opposite Elisabeth Shue and Melissa Leo in "Don McKay,” which premiered at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. Also this year, Church is starring in 20th Century Fox's dark comedy "All About Steve” opposite Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper as a manipulative, self-serving news reporter, Hartman Hughes. The film is set for release this fall.

Church's recent projects continue his mandate of tasteful choices as an actor. He starred opposite Dennis Quaid and Sarah Jessica Parker in Miramax's 2008 arthouse film, "Smart People.” He was also featured as the villian "Sandman” aka "Flint Marko” in the third installment of Sony Pictures' "Spider-Man” franchise, "Spider-Man 3,” which was 2007's biggest box-office hit.

In 2007, Church won an Emmy Award and received Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for his role as Tom Harte opposite the legendary Robert Duvall in the critically successful western epic "Broken Trail,” directed by Walter Hill, which premiered on American Movie Classics. In 2006, Church utilized his unique voice in two voice-over roles: first as a cow in Dreamworks Animation's "Over the Hedge,” and then as the crow, Brooks, in the remake of the classic "Charlotte's Web,” released by Paramount Pictures.

Church made his feature film debut in the legendary "Tombstone” in 1993. His performance is hardly noteworthy, save for the way that he was riddled with bullets at the O.K. Corral. Church has proven himself to be a serviceable actor and is best known for his role as the bucket-headed mechanic Lowell Mather on the long-running NBC series "Wings.” He is also known for his lead role in the FOX series "Ned and Stacey,” in which he starred opposite Debra Messing as the self-righteous Ned Dorsey. In 1997, Time magazine proclaimed that "Ned Dorsey is one of the six reasons to watch television.” That same year, and for the same performance, Church was declared "unfit to live with dogs” by National Public Radio.

Church has also had roles in numerous feature films, most notably opposite Brendan Fraser in the box-office blockbuster "George of the Jungle,” and the straight-tocable "Free Money” opposite the brilliant and bizarre Marlon Brando.

In addition, Church is co-screenwriter and director of the film "Rolling Kansas,” which premiered as an official selection to the Sundance Film Festival in 2003. Acclaimed by no one, it now comfortably resides on Comedy Central. Church resides on his ranch in Texas.
