JOHN LITHGOW (Walter Lovell) has been nominated for 12 Emmy Awards for his work on television. He won three Emmys for starring on the NBC comedy "3rd Rock From the Sun" before winning for his diabolical turn as "the Trinity Killer" on Showtime's drama "Dexter" and a transformative role as Winston Churchill in "The Crown." In addition to his Emmy for the acclaimed Netflix series, Lithgow received a Golden Globe Award nomination for best supporting actor, won a Critics Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor and also netted a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor.

During the six-year run of "3rd Rock From the Sun," Lithgow also won a Golden Globe, two SAG Awards, the American Comedy Award and, when the sitcom finally went off the air, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Additionally, he added a second Golden Globe win for his 12- episode arc on "Dexter."

Lithgow's roots are in the theater. In 1973, he won a Tony Award three weeks after his Broadway debut in David Storey's "The Changing Room." Since then he has appeared on Broadway 20 more times, earning five more Tony nominations, a second Tony win, four Drama Desk Awards and induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame.

In the early 1980s Lithgow began to make a major mark in film. At that time he was nominated for Oscars in back-to-back years, for The World According to Garp and Terms of Endearment. In total he has appeared in more than 45 films including All That Jazz, Blow Out, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Footloose, Shrek, Kinsey, Dreamgirls, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Interstellar, Beatriz at Dinner and Daddy's Home 2.

Lithgow has acted in England with both the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, playing Malvolio in "Twelfth Night" and the title role in "The Magistrate." He returned to the New York stage in 2014, first as the title character in "King Lear" for the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park and then in Edward Albee's "A Delicate Balance," on Broadway. In 2018 Lithgow appeared as Voltaire/Dr. Pangloss in the Carnegie Hall presentation of Leonard Bernstein's "Candide."

In 2008 Lithgow devised the one-man show "John Lithgow: Stories by Heart" for Lincoln Center Theater. Over the next decade he performed it in 35 cities around the country, arriving on Broadway this past year. Lithgow returns to Broadway alongside Laurie Metcalf in "Hillary and Clinton," by Lucas Hnath.
