Academy Award®-nominated actor GREG KINNEAR(Clark Poundstone) continues to build upon his already impressive resume with roles in the most diverse of projects. His latest film work includes starring roles in the comedies Baby Mama, opposite Tina Fey, and Ghost Town, with Ricky Gervais, as well as the drama Flash of Genius, with Lauren Graham.

This April, Kinnear will star opposite Miley Cyrus in The Last Song. Based on best-selling novelist Nicholas Sparks' latest novel, The Last Song is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father tries to reconnect with his troubled teenage daughter through the only thing they have in common, music, in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances.

In Little Miss Sunshine, the critically acclaimed hit of the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, Kinnear played a struggling motivational coach who leads his family on an eventful road trip so that his seven-year-old daughter can realize her dream of competing in a beauty pageant. Lauded by critics nationwide, Little Miss Sunshine went on to receive several Academy Award® nominations and Film Independent's Spirit Awards, while Kinnear, along with Steve Carell, Alan Arkin, Abigail Breslin, Paul Dano and Toni Collette, won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Kinnear segued from beauty pageants to the gridiron to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in the film Invincible, the real-life tale of Vince Papale, a 30- year-old bartender who goes to an open tryout of the Philadelphia Eagles, organized by new coach Dick Vermeil (Kinnear). He then starred in Richard Linklater's Fast Food Nation, based on the bestselling book by Eric Schlosser.

In 1997, Kinnear starred alongside Jack Nicholson in James L. Brooks' Oscar®-nominated As Good as It Gets, and he received an Academy Award® nomination for his portrayal of Nicholson's neighbor Simon. Kinnear also received Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for the performance, and the National Board of Review named him Best Supporting Actor. In 1995, Kinnear won an Emmy Award for E! Entertainment's Talk Soup.

Kinnear made his feature film debut in director Sydney Pollack's remake of Sabrina, starring opposite Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond. His performance prompted the trade organization of movie theater owners to name him ShoWest's Star of Tomorrow. Following his Oscar®-nominated performance in As Good as It Gets, he co-starred in Nora Ephron's hit romantic comedy You've Got Mail, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, and Mike Nichols' What Planet Are You From?, with Garry Shandling and Annette Bening.

Kinnear's other credits include The Matador, with Pierce Brosnan, and the critically acclaimed biopic of actor Bob Crane, Auto Focus, for director Paul Schrader. Kinnear voiced the character Ratchet for the animated film Robots, and he has also starred in We Were Soldiers, with Mel Gibson; HBO's Dinner With Friends, for Norman Jewison; the Farrelly brothers' comedy Stuck on You, with Matt Damon; Sam Raimi's supernatural thriller The Gift, alongside Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes; and director Neil LaBute's black comedy Nurse Betty, opposite Renée Zellweger, Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock.

Born in Logansport, Indiana, Kinnear grew up around the world as his family followed his State Department father to locations including Washington, D.C.; Beirut, Lebanon; and Athens, Greece. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three daughters.
