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."
