THE BOOK OF ELI

RAY STEVENSON (Redridge) is perhaps best known for his starring role in the HBO/BBC television series "Rome,” portraying the legionary Titus Pullo to both critical and public acclaim. Since the series wrapped, he has been working non-stop in a wide variety of feature films.

Stevenson most recently starred in the fantasy thriller "Cirque de Freak: The Vampire's Assistant,” directed by Paul Weitz and based on the best-selling children's series by Darren Shan. In 2008, he was seen as the lead in "Punisher: War Zone,” about the Marvel comics antihero Frank Castle and his quest to rid the world of evil after the death of his wife and daughter.

He will next be seen in director Jonathan Hensleigh's "The Irishman,” as the title character in a true crime story of notorious mobster Danny Greene, with Christopher Walken, Vincent D'Onofrio and Val Kilmer, set for 2010. Hensleigh & Jeremy Walters wrote the screenplay based on the book To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia, by Rick Porello. Also set for 2010 is Adam McKay's action comedy "The Other Guys,” set in the world of the New York City cops, in which Stevenson stars with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Among his upcoming projects, Stevenson will play Volstagg, one of the leads in Marvel Comics' "Thor,” inspired by the Shakespeare's Falstaff and described as being over 1,000 pounds of muscle and the life of the party. This will reunite him with director Kenneth Branagh, who acted opposite him in "Theory of Flight” for director Paul Greengrass.

Stevenson's film work includes Antoine Fuqua's "King Arthur,” for producer Jerry Bruckheimer; the cult favorite "Outpost,” for director Steven Barker; "The Return of the Native,” opposite Catherine Zeta Jones; and "Some Kind of Life.”

His stage work includes playing Christ in the York Mystery Plays in 2000 at York Minster. In 2001, he played Roger in "Mouth to Mouth,” by Kevin Ely, at the Albery Theatre in London, and, in 2003, appeared as Cardinal in "The Duchess of Malfi,” by John Webster with Janet McTeer, at the Royal National Theatre.

Born in Northern Ireland, Stevenson grew up in England. He studied acting at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
