VAL KILMER (Dieter Von Cunth) is one of the most prolific actors of his generation. From his more recent work as a career military officer in David Mamet's Spartan, back through his work with Oliver Stone in The Doors and Michael Mann in Heat, to his early work in Top Gun, Kilmer has worked with many of the film industry's most respected directors and actors. His recent films include Millennium Film's The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call—New Orleans, with Nicolas Cage and directed by Werner Herzog, and Streets of Blood, with Sharon Stone and Curtis "50 Cent” Jackson. 

Other recent projects include Ric Roman Waugh's Felon, with Stephen Dorff; Déjà Vu, an action-thriller produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films for Touchstone Pictures in which Kilmer starred with Denzel Washington and Jim Caviezel; and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, written and directed by Shane Black, and co-starring Robert Downey Jr.

The youngest student ever admitted to the drama department at Juilliard, Kilmer made his feature debut in the comedy Top Secret!, which he followed with Real Genius and his breakout role as Iceman in Tony Scott's Top Gun, opposite Tom Cruise.

Kilmer's other memorable roles include Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone's The Doors, the title character in Batman Forever, Doc Holliday in Tombstone and Simon Templar in The Saint. His other starring roles include Michael Mann's Heat, with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino; True Romance, directed by Tony Scott; Ron Howard's Willow; At First Sight; and Thunderheart. He won a Prism Award for his work in The Salton Sea, appeared in the 3-D epic Wings of Courage and voiced the character of Moses in the animated film The Prince of Egypt.

Kilmer's films also include Oliver Stone's Alexander, Renny Harlin's Mindhunters, the animated feature Delgo, Ron Howard's The Missing and Wonderland.  During the production of Wonderland, Kilmer began a photography project that blossomed into a behind-the-scenes pictorial book. Released by Pocket Books, the photographs were exhibited in several cities in the United States.

When Kilmer was at Juilliard, he co-wrote the play How It All Began, based on the true story of a West German radical. The play was directed by Des McAnuff and was produced by Joseph Papp for The Public Theater. He made his Broadway debut in the 1983 production of The Slab Boys, with Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon. He also appeared in Papp's Delacorte Theater production of Henry IV: Part One, As You Like It, the title role in Hamlet and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, also at Papp's Public Theater. He starred as Moses in the Max Azria-produced musical The Ten Commandments at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. In 2005, he starred on London's West End at the Playhouse Theatre in Andrew Rattenbury's adaptation of The Postman Always Rings Twice, as Frank Chambers, the drifter played by Jack Nicholson in the 1981 film version.

On television, Kilmer starred in the critically acclaimed HBO Original Movie The Man Who Broke 1,000 Chains, for which he received a CableACE nomination, and in Gore Vidal's Billy the Kid, playing the title role.
