SHUTTER ISLAND

BEN KINGSLEY (Dr. Cawley) earned an Academy Award®, two Golden Globes and two BAFTA Awards for his riveting portrayal of Indian social leader Mahatma Gandhi. He continues to bring unequaled detail and nuance to each role. Garnering three additional Oscar® nominations for Bugsy (1991), Sexy Beast (2000) and House of Sand and Fog (2003), his roles have been as diverse as his talents, from a sturdy U.S. Vice President in Dave to the scheming Fagin in Oliver Twist. Since being knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in the New Year's Eve Honors List 2001, Kingsley has continued to earn honors as a truly international star.

Upcoming for Kingsley are Disney's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, based on the popular video game, starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal; and Teen Patti, starring alongside India's Amitabh Bachchan in the thriller revolving around a reclusive math genius who becomes involved in the world of gambling.

Steeped in British theater, Kingsley marked the beginning of his professional acting career with his acceptance by the Royal Shakespeare Company in l967. From roles in A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Tempest, Brutus in Julius Caesar and the title roles in Othello and Hamlet, among others, his more recent and diverse stage roles include those in The Country Wife, The Cherry Orchard, A Betrothal, The Elephant Man and Waiting for Godot.

Kingsley's film career began in l972 with the thriller Fear Is the Key, but his first major role came a decade later in the epic Gandhi, directed by Richard Attenborough. He followed this Oscar®-winning performance with such early films as Betrayal, Turtle Diary, Harem, Pascali's Island, Without a Clue (as Dr. Watson to Michael Caine's Sherlock Holmes) and The Children opposite Kim Novak. During the '90s Kingsley distinguished himself through such roles as Meyer Lansky in Bugsy, Sneakers, Searching for Bobby Fischer and Dave. In 1994, he was nominated for a BAFTA Award for his memorable supporting role as Itzhak Stern in Steven Spielberg's seven-time Oscar® winner Schindler's List.

During the past decade, Ben Kingsley has remained a coveted and ubiquitous talent. Beginning with such films as Rules of Engagement, What Planet Are You From? and an Oscar®-nominated role as a brutal gangster in Sexy Beast, he received his most recent Oscar® nomination in 2004 for his performance as a proud Iranian emigrant in the highly acclaimed House of Sand and Fog. Among his films in the last several years are Roman Polanski's Oliver Twist, the crime drama Lucky Number Slevin, John Dahl's You Kill Me and the Roman empire saga The Last Legion. His other recent roles give further perspective to his work: The Wackness, in which he played a drug-addled psychiatrist opposite Josh Peck, Famke Janssen, Olivia Thirlby and Mary-Kate Olsen; and the crime thriller Transsiberian, as a mysterious traveler opposite Woody Harrelson, Eduardo Noriega and Thomas Kretschmann. He also recently starred in the sexually charged Elegy; Fifty Dead Men Walking, a thriller set against the dangerous backdrop of 1980s Ireland; and the more lighthearted crime comedy War, Inc. with John Cusack, Hilary Duff and Marisa Tomei.
