ERIC BANA (Avner) was first introduced to American audiences in the title role of Mark "Chopper” Read in the feature film Chopper, which premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and was then released in the U.S. to critical notice after its Australian success. Bana earned awards from the Australian Film Critics Circle and the Australian Film Institute for his portrayal of Chopper.

In 2001, Bana was seen co-starring in Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down as Delta Sgt. First Class Norm "Hoot” Gibson, one of a group of elite U.S. soldiers, opposite Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor and Tom Sizemore. The war epic, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Sony, is based on journalist Mark Bowden's best-selling account of the 1993 U.S. mission in Mogadishu, Somalia. He was also featured in the Australian film The Nugget, released in 2002.

He also starred in the role of Bruce Banner in Hulk for director Ang Lee and Universal Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics character, and was last seen as Hector the Prince of Troy in Warner Bros.' Troy for director Wolfgang Petersen. The film is based on Homer's The Iliad and co-starred Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. Bana will next be seen starring in top Hollywood filmmaker Curtis Hanson's Lucky You.

In the spring, he will begin shooting Romulus, My Father, based on Raimond Gaita's best-selling memoir. Bana currently resides in Australia with his wife and two children.
