DEATH AT A FUNERAL
JAMES MARSDEN (Oscar) Having appeared in a wide range of films over the course of his still young career, James Marsden continues to carve out a distinctive place in Hollywood.
Later this year, he will appear in the Sony Screen Gems remake Straw Dogs for director Rod Lurie opposite Kate Bosworth. In it, Marsden plays L.A. screenwriter "David Sumnerâ€ť who relocates with his wife (Bosworth) to her hometown in the deep South. Soon after they arrive, tensions build and a brewing conflict with locals becomes a threat to them both.
Marsden has also signed on to star in Universal/Illumination's I Hop, opposite Russell Brand. Directed by Tim Hill, the live-action/CG hybrid I Hop will tell the story of Fred (Marsden), an out-of-work slacker, who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny (voiced by Brand), and must take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world's worst houseguest, both learn what it takes to grow up. Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio, and Brian Lynch are writing the screenplay, and Illumination's Christopher Meledrani and John Cohen are producing.
Most recently, Marsden starred opposite Cameron Diaz in Richard Kelley's psychological thriller, The Box. In 2008, he appeared alongside Katherine Heigl in the box office hit 27 Dresses, a romantic comedy for Fox 2000 and Spyglass Entertainment. In 2007, Marsden received rave reviews for his singing and dancing range in both the box-office smash Enchanted opposite Susan Sarandon, Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey for Disney and in Adam Shankman's box-office hit musical Hairspray opposite John Travolta, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pheiffer and Christopher Walken. Marsden played Corny Collins, the host of the TV dance show.
Marsden was also seen in Superman Returns for director Bryan Singer as 'Richard White,' a new rival for the affections of 'Lois Lane.' Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth, Brandon Routh and Frank Langella also starred.
Marsden's diverse film credits include Cyclops in the X-men trilogy, the Nick Cassavetes romantic drama The Notebook, Sex Drive, Disturbing Behavior, 10th and Wolf, and Sugar and Spice.
Marsden currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
