LAW ABIDING CITIZEN

COLM MEANEY (Detective Dunnigan) was born in Dublin, Ireland and is perhaps best known for his role as Chief Operating Officer Miles O'Brien on the television series, "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and "Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Meaney's most recent film is The Damned United, in which he stars opposite Michael Sheen as famed English football coach Don Revie. He was nominated for an Irish Film Award for his starring performance in Kings, Ireland's 2008 official Academy Award entry. Other recent films include 3 and Out with Mackenzie Crook and Five Fingers, with Laurence Fishburne and Ryan Phillipe. 

Meaney made his feature film debut in John Huston's The Dead (1987), but it was his performance in director Alan Parker's The Commitments that gained him wider recognition with North American audiences. He also starred in the other two films in the highly acclaimed Roddy Doyle Barrytown trilogy: The Snapper, for which he received a Best Actor Golden Globe nomination, and The Van. Both films were directed by Steven Frears. Meaney also starred in Alan Parker's Come See the Paradise and The Road to Wellville.

The actor has successfully bridged the gap from starring in large studio films such as Con Air, Mystery, Alaska, Under Siege and Far and Away to highly acclaimed independent films such as Layer Cake, Intermission, The Boy and the Girl from County Clare, This is my Father, The Englishman That Went Up a Hill but Came Down a Mountain, Claire Dolan, Four Days, Into the West and Monument Avenue. 

Meaney was nominated for Best Actor at the Irish Film Awards and won the Best Actor award at the Newport Beach Film Festival for his role in the indie film How Harry Became a Tree. Most recently, Meaney finished shooting a role in Get Him to the Greek, a Judd Apatow-produced comedy in which he plays Russell Brand's father. The cast also includes Jonah Hill, Rose Byrne and Sean Combs. For television, Meaney recently completed shooting "Alice,” a contemporary version of the "Alice in Wonderland” story for the Sci-Fi channel. Meaney and Kathy Bates play the King and Queen of Hearts. Both projects will be released in 2010.

Meaney also stars in the upcoming Canadian miniseries "ZOS: Zone of Separation” and was seen in the recent miniseries, "Covert One: The Hades Factor.” Other television appearances include the miniseries "Scarlett” and "Random Passage” and the TNT film "Boss Lear,” opposite Patrick Stewart. He recently appeared on "Law and Order: Criminal Intent” and in an episode of "The Unit” written and directed by David Mamet. 

Meaney left school in Dublin at the age of 17 to apprentice as a fisherman, but his love of acting led him to enroll in drama classes at The Abbey, Dublin's National Theater. He first came to the United States in 1982 to work in New York and later made his Broadway debut in "Breaking The Code,” opposite Derek Jacobi. Meaney moved to Los Angeles in 1987.

He recently returned to the stage to star with Kevin Spacey in the highly acclaimed production of "Moon for the Misbegotten” at London's Old Vic and on Broadway. Other recent stage work includes his Obie Award-winning performance in "The Cider House Rules” at New York's Atlantic Theater and "Juno and the Paycock” at London's Donmar Theater. Meaney resides in Mallorca, Spain and Los Angeles.
