DAVID STRATHAIRN won the Volpi Cup at the Venice Film
Festival and earned
Best Actor nominations from the Academy, Golden Globes, Screen Actors
Guild, BAFTA and Independent Spirit Awards for his compelling portrait of
legendary CBS news broadcaster Edward R. Murrow in George Clooney's
Oscar-nominated drama "Good Night, and Good Luck." He won an Emmy for
Best Supporting Actor in the HBO project "Temple Grandin" in 2011 and was
nominated in 2012 for his portrayal of John Dos Passos in HBO's
"Hemingway and Gellhorn."
His 2005 Independent Spirit nomination was the fourth in a stellar career
that dates back to his 1980 motion picture debut in John Sayles's first film,
"The Return of the Secaucus Seven." Strathairn subsequently collaborated
with Sayles on seven titles, winning the IFP honor for his supporting
performance in "City of Hope," while collecting two additional nominations
for "Passion Fish" and "Limbo."
Strathairn has continued a busy screen career with co-starring roles in
several critically acclaimed films, including Tim Robbins's directorial debut,
"Bob Roberts"; Penny Marshall's "A League of Their Own"; "Losing Isaiah";
Sydney Pollack's "The Firm"; "Sneakers"; Taylor Hackford's adaptation of the
Stephen King novel "Dolores Claiborne"; and Jodie Foster's "Home for the
Holidays"; as well as two projects with Curtis Hansen: "The River Wild" and
the Oscar-winning "L.A. Confidential," in which Strathairn shared a Screen
Actors Guild Award nomination with the all-star ensemble cast. He will next
be seen in the AMC/BBC eight-part drama "McMafia."
