With every role he plays, DENNIS QUAID upholds his place as one of the most charismatic actors of our time. Quaid received honors from the New York Film Critics Circle and The Independent Spirit Awards as "Best Supporting Actor of the Year” and also garnered nominations for a Golden Globe Award and Screen Actor's Guild Award for his performance in the critically acclaimed 2002 film, "Far From Heaven.”

Dennis has had a busy year in 2011. His film "Soul Surfer” in which he starred alongside Helen Hunt and AnnaSophia Robb became this spring's sleeper hit. Also scheduled for release in 2011 is the independent feature, "Beneath the Darkness,” which also stars Aimee Teegarden. Dennis recently completed work on two feature films. The first, "Playing the Field,” in which he co-stars with Gerard Butler, Uma Thurman and Catherine Zeta-Jones was directed by Gabriele Muccino ("Pursuit of Happiness,” 2006). Additionally, he just wrapped production in Montréal on the independent feature "The Words,” with Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Irons and Olivia Wilde.

In 2010, Dennis starred in the Sony Screen Gems fantasy-thriller, "Legion” alongside Paul Bettany. He also portrayed President Bill Clinton in the HBO movie, The Special Relationship, directed by Richard Loncraine, for which Dennis received a Golden Globe nomination.

Quaid began acting in high school and studied theater at the University of Houston. Soon after his arrival in Hollywood he landed the plum role of a working-class tough in "Breaking Away." Other early film credits include "The Long Riders" with his brother Randy, "9/30/55," "Crazy Mama," "Dreamscape," "All Night Long," "Our Winning Season," "Cavemen," "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" and "Enemy Mine."
