DUPLICITY

Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe Award winner CLIVE OWEN (Ray Koval) has taken the big screen by storm, making quite a name for himself in the U.K., the United States and around the world. It was in 2005 that he proved himself a big-screen star by winning a Golden Globe Award and picking up an Academy Award® nomination for his role as Larry in Mike Nichols' Closer.

The British actor first came onto the scene in several British and American telefilms. In 1991, he starred in his first big hit, the U.K. television series Chancer. He then went on to prove himself to American audiences co-starring with Catherine Zeta- Jones in Jack Gold's CBS telefilm adaptation of "The Return of the Native.” More recently, he starred as detective Ross Tanner in the BBC telefilm Second Sight, which aired on PBS's Mystery! Owen's other U.K. telefilm credits also include Andrew Grieve's Lorna Doone, Andy Wilson's An Evening with Gary Lineker, Diarmuid Lawrence's The Echo and David Blair's Split Second.

Owen's early feature films truly outline his versatility as an actor. He made his film debut in Beeban Kidron's Vroom in 1988, in which he restores a classic American car to take off on the road with costar David Thewlis. In 1991, he went on to play a brother who acts upon his incestuous feelings in Stephen Poliakoff 's Close My Eyes. In 1997, he continued to play complex characters when he starred as a reckless homosexual in corrupt pre-war Germany, who finds unconditional love while in a Nazi war camp in Sean Mathias' Bent. In 2001 and 2002 respectively, he went on to star in Joel Hershman's offbeat British comedy Greenfingers, and Robert Altman's star-studded Gosford Park.

Owen's next films only added to his already brilliant and diverse choice of film credits. He chose Beyond Borders, a romantic war drama co-starring Angelina Jolie; Mike Hodges' thriller I'll Sleep When I'm Dead; the action war drama King Arthur; and Sin City, which co-starred Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba.

Owen was seen in fall 2005 in Derailed, opposite Jennifer Aniston, and went on to star in Spike Lee's Inside Man, opposite Denzel Washington and Jodie Foster. In 2006, Owen starred in Alfonso Cuarón's action-packed film Children of Men, opposite Julianne Moore and Michael Caine. The film was critically acclaimed, as well as Owen's performance. He next starred in Michael Davis' suspense Shoot 'Em Up, in which he starred opposite Paul Giamatti, and in Elizabeth: The Golden Age, in which he portrayed Sir Walter Raleigh, the love interest opposite Cate Blanchett, who reprised her role as Queen Elizabeth. Currently, he stars in The International as an Interpol agent, opposite Naomi Watts. Owen recently completed filming The Boys Are Back in Town in Australia.

Owen is also an acclaimed stage actor. His stage work includes portraying Romeo at the Young Vic Theatre; starring in Sean Mathias' staging of Noël Coward's Design for Living; and playing the lead role in Patrick Marber's original production of Closer at the Royal National Theatre in 1997. In fall 2001, he starred in London in Laurence Boswell's staging of Peter Nichols' A Day in the Death of Joe Egg.

Owen also starred as the driver in the series of BMW Internet short features entitled The Hire, each directed by John Frankenheimer, Ang Lee, Wong Kar Wai, Guy Ritchie and Alejandro González Iñárritu.
