MORE INFO ON WILLIAM HURT: William M. Hurt (born March 20, 1950) is an American actor. He won both the Academy and BAFTA Awards for his work in Kiss of the Spider Woman.

Hurt was born in Washington, D.C., the son of Claire Isabel (née McGill), who worked at Time, Inc., and Alfred McCord Hurt, who worked for the U.S. State Department. His parents divorced, and his mother married Henry Luce III (the son of the founder of Time Magazine) during Hurt's childhood. Hurt graduated from Middlesex School in 1968 where he was vice president of the Dramatics Club and had the lead role in several of the school plays. His high school yearbook predicted, "With characteristics such as these, you might even see him on Broadway." Hurt attended Tufts University and studied theology, but turned instead to acting and joined the Juilliard Drama School studying alongside Christopher Reeve. He has received the nickname "bojangles" from several of his classmates at Juilliard.

Hurt appeared first on stage, only later turning to film. His first major role was in the sci-fi hit Altered States which gave him wide recognition for playing an obsessed scientist. His performance with Richard Crenna, Ted Danson, and newcomer Kathleen Turner in Lawrence Kasdan's neo-noir classic Body Heat elevated Hurt to stardom. He received the Best Male Performance Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Actor for Kiss of the Spider Woman for 1985. He has received three additional Oscar nominations; one for Children of a Lesser God, one for Broadcast News and one (for Best Supporting Actor) in A History Of Violence .

Often cast as an intellectual, Hurt has put this to good use in many films like Lost in Space and The Big Chill, but he is also effective in other kinds of roles, such as those in I Love You to Death, and David Cronenberg's psychological drama A History of Violence (2005), wherein, with less than 10 minutes of screen time, he plays the creepy mob boss Richie Cusack. That same year, Hurt could be seen as a mysterious government operative in Stephen Gaghan's ensemble drama about the politics of big oil, Syriana.

Hurt has been seen in the mini-series adaptation of Stephen King's Nightmares and Dreamscapes, in a piece entitled Battleground. He plays "Renshaw", a hitman who receives a package from the widow of a toymaker he killed, unaware of what is waiting inside for him. [also notable for its complete lack of dialogue] He appeared in the cast of "Vanya", an adaptation of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya playing in the Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, Oregon.

He appeared in Sean Penn's film Into the Wild, the true story of Christopher McCandless. Hurt next starred as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross in The Incredible Hulk alongside Edward Norton, Liv Tyler and Tim Roth. He also appeared as President Henry Ashton in the 2008 action-thriller Vantage Point. Hurt also played Mr Brooks' alter-ego in Mr. Brooks starring Kevin Costner.

In 2009, Hurt began appearing as a series regular on the critically-acclaimed FX series Damages playing a corporate whistleblower opposite Glenn Close and Marcia Gay Harden. For his role in the series, Hurt earned a 2009 Primetime Emmy Award nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

Hurt is fluent in French and maintains a home outside Paris. He was previously married to Mary Beth Hurt from 1971 to 1982.

In the 1980s, Hurt was involved in a lawsuit with Sandra Jennings which alleged that the two shared a common-law marriage. While he was still married, Hurt and Jennings began a relationship in Saratoga, New York in the summer of 1981. Jennings became pregnant in the Spring of 1982 which precipitated Hurt's divorce from Mary Beth Hurt, after which Hurt and Jennings relocated to South Carolina, which recognized common-law marriages. Hurt and Jennings, never officially married, later separated, and Jennings sued in New York, seeking a court order recognizing their purported common-law marriage under South Carolina law. The New York court, which did not recognize common-law marriage and was reluctant to recognize a common-law marriage originating in South Carolina, found in Hurt's favor that no common-law marriage existed.

Additionally, Hurt dated Marlee Matlin for two years, and they lived together during 1986. In her 2009 autobiographical book, I'll Scream Later, Matlin claimed their relationship involved considerable drug abuse and physical abuse by Hurt. In response to the accusations aired on CNN on April 13, 2009, Hurt's agent declined to respond. Hurt issued a statement on April 14, 2009, responding to Matlin's remarks. He stated "My own recollection is that we both apologized and both did a great deal to heal our lives. Of course, I did and do apologize for any pain I caused. And I know we have both grown. I wish Marlee and her family nothing but good."

Hurt has four children: Jeanne with actress Sandrine Bonnaire, Alex with Sandra Jennings and two sons, Sam and William Hurt, from his 1989-92 marriage to Heidi Henderson.

MORE INFO ON BLAIR BROWN: Bonnie Blair Brown (born April 23, 1947) is an American theater, film, and television actress. She has had a number of high profile roles, including a Tony Award winning turn in the play Copenhagen on Broadway, as well as a run as the title character in the televsion comedy-drama The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, which ran from 1987 to 1991.

Brown pursued secondary education at the National Theatre School of Canada. She gained notice as a participating actor at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, and spent several years honing her work on the stage.

Brown was born in Washington, D.C., the daughter of Elizabeth Ann (née Blair), a teacher, and Milton Henry Brown, a U.S. intelligence agent. In addition to her relationship with Hare, Brown had a relationship with Canadian celebutante Jonathon Booth and noted actor Richard Jordan. The two met during the filming of the miniseries Captain and the Kings in 1976. The couple lived together from 1976 to 1985, and they had one son, Robert, born in 1983.

Brown's first feature film role was in the 1973 film The Paper Chase; her first major starring role was in The Choirboys in 1977. Among her other film credits were Altered States (opposite William Hurt), One Trick Pony, the film Stealing Home (opposite Mark Harmon), A Flash Of Green, and arguably her highest profile film role to date, the romantic lead opposite John Belushi in Continental Divide. Brown's most recent appearance in a feature film as a performer was the 2006 film The Sentinel (2006 film).

Brown appeared in several television movies and miniseries, primarily during the 1980s. Among the appearances was a high-profile role as Jacqueline Kennedy in the 1983 TV miniseries Kennedy. She also appeared in several other programs about the Kennedys, including the 1996 miniseries A Season in Purgatory, which was a thinly veiled portrait of the family, as well as an appearance as Anna Roosevelt in a telefilm about Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Brown appeared in the primetime series The Rockford Files, Kojak, Frasier, Smallville, Touched by an Angel, ER, and Ed, among others.

Brown is perhaps best known for her five-year run (1987-1991) on the Emmy Award-winning comedy-drama The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd. The show spent two years on NBC, then moved to the Lifetime cable channel for the remainder of its run. Brown played the title role, and she, and the show, earned a small but dedicated following.

In 2008 Brown was cast as Nina Sharp in Fringe, which premiered on September 9, 2008 on Fox.

Brown has been involved with theater since the launch of her career. Among her earlier roles was a run as Lucy Brown in the 1976 production of Brecht & Weill's The Threepenny Opera, produced by Joe Papp and directed by Richard Foreman. She left the production for film work, but after being away from the production for eight months, Ellen Greene, who was playing the part of Jenny, fell ill. Brown astounded the stage manager of the production by coming in and, with one hour of rehearsal, put on a "brilliant" performance as Jenny.

Brown's first major appearance on the Broadway stage came in 1989, in the play "Secret Rapture", written by David Hare; she and Hare were a couple at the time.

Once "Molly Dodd" concluded, Brown became a prolific Broadway actress, appearing in a number of roles. Among them were roles in Tom Stoppard's Arcadia at Lincoln Center, two separate runs as Frau Schneider in the revival of Cabaret, and The Comedy of Errors for the New York Shakespeare Festival. She won a Tony Award in 2000 for her appearance in the play Copenhagen. Brown also appeared in productions of the Wendy Wasserstein play Heidi Chronicles, A Little Night Music, and The Threepenny Opera.

Most recently, Brown played the lead role in The Clean House, by playwright Sarah Ruhl. She has also expressed an interest in directing new plays, and will direct the New York premiere of Sarah Treem's play A Feminine Ending in fall 2007.

In the 1990s, Brown expanded her career from performance into voiceover work. Brown has narrated a number of books, as well as being a narrator in films and documentaries.

She has been the narrator for a number of audiobooks, including John Grisham's The Client, Lois Lowry's Number the Stars, Stephen King's Rose Madder, and, more recently, Kevin Henkes' Olive's Ocean and Sue Miller's 2005 novel Lost in the Forest.

Brown has narrated numerous documentaries, especially for PBS's "American Experience" series. Most recently she has narrated the 2007 PBS series "The Mysterious Human Heart". Other documentary narrations include the scientific series "The Secret Life of the Brain", the documentary on Aimee Semple McPherson, aired in April 2007, and a 2006 PBS documentary about Marie Antoinette.
