JOHN ROBINSON

AS “CLIVE STONE” 

John Robinson was born  on October 25, 1985. From role to role, actor John Robinson exuded an all-American presence and look that made him a shoe-in for portrayals of average, well-rounded young men, but he also projected a subtly haunting quality that lent him perfectly to material with a slight edge. On that note, Robinson is arguably best known for his contributions to Gus Van Sant’s explosive 2003 drama Elephant — the tale of a high school massacre inspired by Columbine — where he played John, a genial and responsible young man burdened by an alcoholic father. Robinson grew up in Lake Oswego, OR, and experienced his first brush with show business thanks to Van Sant, who discovered him and recruited him for said part. The young actor scored an equally memorable follow-up via a collaboration with director Catherine Hardwicke playing legendary daredevil skateboarder Stacy Peralta in the period drama Lords of Dogtown (2005), and enjoyed small turns in the Pierce Brosnan western Seraphim Falls and the effects-heavy sci-fi action saga Transformers. In 2008, Robinson teamed up with director Kelly Reichardt and star Michelle Williams for a supporting role in the gentle slice-of-life drama Wendy and Lucy.

Jean-Marc-Barrv.2

CÉSAR AWARD NOMINATED ACTOR JEAN-MARC BARR

AS “TREVOR DE BLANC” 

Jean Marc Barr was born on September 27, 1960 in Bitburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany to a French mother and American father. Barr studied philosophy at the University of California, Los Angeles, the Paris Conservatoire and the Sorbonne. He moved to London to pursue an education in drama at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Barr began working in theatre in France in 1986. Soon, he found work in television, including a small role in Hotel du Lac, which was the BBC’s version of the Booker prize-winning novel by Anita Brookner, as well as in film, in particular the 5 time Academy Award Nominated film Hope and Glory directed by legendary filmmaker John Boorman. But it was when Barr was cast in the role of French diver Jacques Mayol, alongside Rosanna Arquette and Jean Reno in the tremendously successful The Big Blue directed by visionary filmmaker Luc Besson, that Barr instantly became a star. The Big Blue went on to become the most financially successful film in France in the 1980s, and Barr’s breathtaking portrayal of the diver garnered him a prestigious César Award nomination for Best Actor. In 1991, Barr starred in Danish director Lars von Trier’s classic masterwork Europa, marking the beginning of a long friendship as well as a significant professional relationship. He went on to appear in von Trier’s Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Manderlay, and The Boss of It All.

Most recently, Barr played author Jack Kerouac in the 2013 film adaptation of the Beat Generation autobiographical novel Big Sur, which was an Official Selection of the Sundance Film Festival, as well as collaborating once again with Lars Von Trier in Nympho()maniac.

Brad,Dourif(hi-res)

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATED ACTOR BRAD DOURIF

AS “HERMAN DE BLANC”

Brad Dourif was born Bradford Claude Dourif on March 18, 1950 in Huntington, West Virginia. During the early 1970s, Dourif appeared in a number of plays, off-Broadway and at Woodstock, New York.

Legendary director Milos Forman cast Dourif in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Although this film is frequently cited as his film debut, in fact, Dourif made his first big-screen appearance with a bit part in W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings. Nevertheless, his portrayal of the vulnerable Billy Bibbit in Forman’s film was undoubtedly his big break, earning him a Golden Globe Award for Best Acting Debut, a British Academy Film Award for Best Supporting Actor, and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Skeptical of his instant stardom, Dourif continued in theater and taught acting and directing classes at Columbia University until 1988 when he moved to Hollywood. Despite his attempts to avoid typecasting, his intensity destined him to play demented, deranged, or disturbed characters, like Hazel Motes in John Huston’s Wise Blood. Dourif then teamed up with iconic director David Lynch for Dune and Blue Velvet. Since his television debut in the PBS film The Mound Builders, Dourif has made sporadic appearances in a number of television series, such as The X-Files, Babylon 5, Star Trek: Voyager and Ponderosa (in the recurring role of Frenchy).

Recent film work includes the role of Grima Wormtongue in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Doc Cochran in the television series Deadwood, in which Dourif was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor. The films and television series we’ve highlighted don’t even scratch the surface of Mr. Brad Dourif’s illustrious career.
