AVATAR

STEPHEN LANG (Col. Miles Quaritch), an actor of uncommon transformative power, has built a distinguished career on the stage and in film. Whether the role is Hamlet or Babe Ruth, "Stonewall" Jackson or Vaslav Nijinsky, Ike Clanton or Charles Winstead, Lang disappears into the part, creating indelible portraits of characters both historical and imagined.

This year has been a banner one for Lang on screen. In addition to his role in AVATAR, he portrayed Special Agent Charles Winstead in Michael Mann's "Public Enemies,” and took on the key role of General Hopgood opposite George Clooney in "The Men Who Stare at Goats.”

Lang's theater credits are extensive on and off Broadway, as well as nationally and internationally. Premieres include Aaron Sorkin's "A Few Good Men,” John Patrick Shanley's "Defiance,” Steve Tesich's "The Speed of Darkness,” and Arthur Miller's "Finishing the Picture.” He has performed leading roles in classics by Moliere, Williams, O'Casey, Beckett, Shaw, Shepard, Sophocles and Shakespeare, at some of the nation's finest theatres, including The Goodman, The Guthrie, The New York Shakespeare Festival, Circle in the Square, The Kennedy Center, BAM, and a host of others.

Lang has performed his solo play "Beyond Glory” around the world, including 101 performances at The Roundabout Theatre. He received the Chairman's Medal for Distinguished Service from the NEA for bringing "Beyond Glory” to American troops stationed across the globe.

Lang's work in film has been no less varied and distinctive. For his performance as General "Stonewall” Jackson in "Gods and Generals,” he received The Grace Prize. Other films include "Last Exit to Brooklyn,” "Tombstone,” Gettysburg,” "The Hard Way,” "Manhunter,” "Band of the Hand,” "Trixie” and "Fire Down Below.”

On television, he gave a popularly and critically acclaimed performance as the titular baseball icon in "Babe Ruth.” He was a series regular on Michael Mann's classic "Crime Story,” and was the elusive One-Armed Man in the latest television incarnation of "The Fugitive.”
