Barry Pepper stars in "True Grit" (2010), the Coen brothers' remake of the classic Western, as Lucky Ned Pepper. He also stars in "Casino Jack," alongside Kevin Spacey, as Michael Scanlon.

Barry Pepper, one of Hollywood's most talented actors, has a body of work that speaks for itself. Ever since he gained critical attention for his portrayal of Private Jackson in the Academy Award-winning feature "Saving Private Ryan," Pepper has been sought out for compelling roles with award-winning filmmakers. Both a television and film star, Pepper recently started production on the History Channel's eight-hour miniseries "The Kennedys," starring with Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes, and Tom Wilkinson.

Pepper was seen in several films in 2010, including "Casino Jack," where he stars opposite Kevin Spacey in the story of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Pepper plays Abramoff's protégé, Michael Scanlon. He can also be seen in "Like Dandelion Dust," which made the festival circuits, winning awards at the Sedona Film Festival, San Luis Obispo Festival, Vail Film Festival, Sonoma Film Festival, Las Vegas Film Festival, and the Palm Springs Film Festival, among others.

Pepper has starred alongside some of today's most respected fellow actors and directors. He was seen opposite Will Smith in Columbia Pictures' "Seven Pounds," worked with Clint Eastwood in the World War II epic "Flags of Our Fathers" for Dreamworks/Warner Bros, and starred alongside Tom Hanks in the Academy Award winning feature "The Green Mile." He also starred in "25th Hour," Spike Lee's compelling view of post-9/11 New York City, starring Ed Norton and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and in "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" for Sony Pictures Classics, which marked Tommy Lee Jones's directorial debut and was shown in competition at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival, and garnered Pepper a nomination for Best Supporting Male at the 2006 Independent Spirit Awards.

His other feature credits include the Bruckheimer/Scott thriller "Enemy of the State" with Will Smith and Gene Hackman, the critically acclaimed Paramount Pictures' "We Were Soldiers" with Mel Gibson, and the New Line feature "Knockaround Guys" opposite John Malkovich and Dennis Hopper.

Pepper has also made his mark as a producer. He executive produced and starred in the title role of the ESPN feature "3: The Dale Earnhardt Story," a biopic of the Nascar star who died in a crash during the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. His performance garnered a nomination for the 11th Annual SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries. He also executive produced and starred in "The Snow Walker," which he received a Best Actor nomination for the 24th Annual Genie Awards in Canada as well as eight other nominations for the film.

Pepper's starring role in the HBO feature "61*" earned him nominations for a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and a Critic's Choice Award. The film tells the story behind the competition between the New York Yankees' Roger Maris (Pepper) and Mickey Mantle (Thomas Jane) to break Babe Ruth's single season homerun record in 1961. The critically acclaimed film was directed and executive produced by Billy Crystal.

Born and raised in Canada, Pepper resides there with his wife and daughter.
