WILLIAM HURT (Isaac Penn) has, throughout his career,
garnered a reputation as a performer as facile in film and television as he is
on stage. He was recently seen in A&E's "Bonnie and Clyde" and the Science
Channel's movie "The Challenger Disaster." Hurt will also soon be seen in the
upcoming feature "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."
Hurt made his film debut in the science-fiction feature "Altered States," for
which he received his first Golden Globe Award nomination. He later went on to
earn an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of
Luis Molina in "Kiss of the Spiderwoman." His performances in "Children of a
Lesser God," "Broadcast News" and "A History of Violence" also earned him
another three Academy Award nominations.
Hurt's roles in HBO's "Too Big to Fail" and on FX's "Damages" both earned him
a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.
On stage, Hurt has been seen in the Public Theatre's productions of "A
Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Henry V." He has done multiple productions for the
Circle Theatre, including "Hamlet," "Mary Stuart," "Fifth of July" and "My
Life." Hurt's portrayal of Eddie in the Broadway production of David Rabe's "Hurlyburly"
earned him a Tony Award nomination.
