CARS 2

Already one of the most acclaimed comics of his generation, EDDIE IZZARD (voice of Miles Axlerod) is developing an equally stellar reputation as a film, television and stage actor.

Izzard currently can be seen in the third season of "United States of Tara” on Showtime. He just completed shooting the buccaneer classic "Treasure Island,” starring as Long John Silver opposite Elijah Wood as Ben Gunn for the Syfy Channel.

Last year, "Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story” received an Emmy® Award nomination. The original documentary culled from thousands of hours of footage, documents his rise to fame from his early influences to now. Last year, Izzard was seen on Broadway in David Mamet's "Race” and in the independent film "Every Day” opposite Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt and Carla Gugino.

Other recent film roles include "Valkyrie” opposite Tom Cruise, MGM's animated film "Igor,” Steven Soderbergh's capers "Ocean's Thirteen” and "Ocean's Twelve” with George Clooney and Brad Pitt and Julie Taymor's "Across the Universe.” He lent his voice to Jerry Seinfeld's "Bee Movie.”

In April 2008, he embarked on the largest comedy tour of his career with his show titled "Stripped.” In five months, he performed in 34 cities across the United States including three nights at New York's legendary Radio City Music Hall. Upon his return to the U.K., he broke box-office records by selling out a five-week tour in London's West End in less than 48 hours. "Stripped” indisputably became the hottestselling comedy ticket of 2008 on both sides of the Atlantic.

In 2005, Izzard demonstrated his musical flair in "Romance and Cigarettes,” a Coen Brothers production directed by John Turturro, starring Susan Sarandon and Kate Winslet. In 2004, he was seen in the mystical Western "Blueberry” alongside Kenneth Branagh and Zoe Wannamaker. He delighted children and adults alike as the voice of the Sand Fairy in "Five Children and It.” In 2001, Izzard enjoyed great success in the U.S. and U.K. for his portrayal of Charlie Chaplin in Peter Bogdanovich's "The Cat's Meow.”

His big-screen debut was alongside Bob Hoskins and Robin Williams in the 1996 movie, "Secret Agent.” Other highlights in his featurefilm career include appearing in "The Avengers” with Sean Connery and "Velvet Goldmine” with Ewan McGregor. Izzard's credits also include "All the Queen's Men,” "The Revenger's Tragedy” and the animated movie "The Wild” as the voice of Nigel.

On television, Izzard last starred in the critically acclaimed FX Network Show "The Riches” opposite Minnie Driver. Izzard also served as a producer.

Izzard has been hailed as one of the foremost stand-ups of his generation. His bizarre, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives are lauded for their creativity and wit. His comedic musings have earned him some top awards from Time Out and the Perrier Panel. "Live at the Ambassadors” received an Olivier Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement. He won the British Comedy Award for Top Stand-Up Comedian in 1993 and 1996, and "Dress to Kill” earned him a New York Drama Desk Award and two Emmys®.

Izzard's stage appearances include David Mamet's "The Cryptogram” and the title role in Marlowe's "Edward II,” as well as "900 Oneonta” and "A Day in the Death of Joe Egg” in London and on Broadway, which won him a handful of awards, including a Tony® nomination for Best Actor.

Since his first stage appearance on London's West End in 1993 in the one-man show "Live at the Ambassadors,” Izzard has inhabited a unique world of his own "carefully crafted rubbish.” The show was followed by a succession of critically acclaimed shows, including "Unrepeatable” in 1994, 1996's "Definite Article,” "Glorious” in 1997, "Dress to Kill” in 1998 and the 2000 production "Circle.”

Izzard ran 1,100 miles through England, Wales, North Ireland and Scotland for charity. He raised $250,000 for Sports Relief, which helps the less fortunate in Britain and poor countries worldwide.
