CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE

Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of DWIGHT YOAKAM (Doc Miles). The long-time Los Angeleno has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite cadre of global superstars. He has 12 gold albums and 9 platinum or multi-platinum albums, including the triple platinum "This Time.” He's won two Grammys and earned a staggering 21 nominations.

Over the last 15 years, Yoakam has carved out a niche as one of the top character actors on film. Starting with a role as a truck driver in John Dahl's spicy film noir "Red Rock West” in 1992, Yoakam was an instantly mesmerizing presence on the big screen. However, nothing prepared viewers for his riveting appearance as the malevolent Doyle Hargraves in the Academy Award® winning film "Sling Blade,” for which he and his co-stars were also nominated for the Screen Actors Guild's award for outstanding performance by a cast. In David Fincher's box office hit "Panic Room,” as the brilliantly underplayed antagonist Raoul, Yoakam once again seamlessly shapeshifted in front of our eyes. His performance in Tommy Lee Jones' Cannes Film Festival award-winning "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada” was effusively praised for its penetrating honesty.

This past holiday season Yoakam once again displayed his vast range playing the hilarious Pastor Phil alongside Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn in the broad comedy romp, "Four Christmases.”
