JIM BROADBENT (Fenoglio), a quintessential British character actor, won an Academy Award® and a Golden Globe Award for his performance in Richard Eyre's 2001 biopic "Iris,” opposite Judi Dench. Broadbent's portrayal of Iris Murdoch's devoted husband, John Bayley, also brought him a National Board of Review Award, as well as Screen Actors Guild Award® and BAFTA Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor. In addition, he won a Los Angeles Film Critics Award for his work in both "Iris” and Baz Luhrman's groundbreaking musical "Moulin Rouge!,” for which Broadbent also won a BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor. Also in 2001, he starred in the hit comedy "Bridget Jones's Diary,” playing Bridget's dad.

Broadbent was most recently seen in Steven Spielberg's blockbuster "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” He next stars in "The Young Victoria,” chronicling the early years of Queen Victoria, and this summer he will play Hogwarts Professor Horace Slughorn in the much-anticipated sixth installment of the Harry Potter franchise, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”

Broadbent earlier won a London Film Critics Circle Award and the Best Actor Award at the 1999 Venice Film Festival for his portrayal of W.S. Gilbert, of Gilbert & Sullivan, in Mike Leigh's "Topsy-Turvy.” He has also teamed with Leigh in the films "Life is Sweet” and, more recently, "Vera Drake.” Broadbent's long list of film credits also includes "Hot Fuzz”; "Art School Confidential”; "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”; "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason”; Mira Nair's "Vanity Fair”; "Bright Young Things,” for director Stephen Fry; "Gangs of New York,” under the direction of Martin Scorsese; Richard Loncraine's "Richard III”; Woody Allen's "Bullets Over Broadway”; "Enchanted April,” directed by Mike Newell; and Neil Jordan's "The Crying Game,” to name only a portion.

Honored for his work on television, Broadbent most recently won Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards and garnered an Emmy nomination for Best Actor for the titular role in the telefilm "Longford.” He had earlier received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for his performance in the historical HBO movie "The Gathering Storm.” He has also appeared in more than 40 other television projects, including miniseries, movies and series.
