TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT

MICHAEL CONNELL BIEHN (Bill Franklin) is best known for his roles in James Cameron's science fiction action films, The Terminator, Aliens and The Abyss.

Biehn grew up mainly in Lincoln, Nebraska, and Lake Havasu, Arizona. The budding actor realized his love for film at an early age, and was awarded a drama scholarship to The University of Arizona. In his first year, Michael realized college wasn't for him and moved to Los Angeles. It wouldn't take long for the film industry to recognize talent in the young upstart. He was given his first role in 1977 in a pilot called "James at 16.”

The next year, Biehn starred opposite Cathy Lee Crosby in his first feature film, Coach, and if you look closely enough, you can spot Biehn in the blockbuster hit Grease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. Since then, his film and television career has skyrocketed.

His first big break came when he played the title role in the film The Fan, opposite Lauren Bacall. His next big film was The Terminator, directed by James Cameron. His relationship with Cameron proved to be a good one. They went on to make two other films together, Aliens and The Abyss.

Biehn has worked with some of the best directors in the business, including William Friedkin, with whom he made Rampage and Jade. He also has worked twice with Franc Roddam, in K2 and The Lords of Discipline, and Michael Bay, in The Rock. More recently, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino cast him in their film collaboration, Grindhouse. His comedic role in Susan's Plan, directed by John Landis, was well received by critics.

Biehn has just wrapped The Divide for Xavier Gens, co-starring Milo Ventimiglia and Rosanna Arquette. His numerous television credits include "Hill Street Blues,” "Dark Blue,” "Law and Order: Criminal Intent” and the Emmy-Award®-winning "The Magnificent Seven.”

The Victim is Biehn's first foray into writing and producing. He hopes that people enjoy watching the film as much as he did making it and invites them to check out the movie's website at www.grindhousethevictim.com.
