Cary Elwes stars in "No Strings Attached," starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman, as Dr. Metzner.

Throughout his career veteran actor Cary Elwes has turned in an array of outstanding, eclectic performances. He was just seen in the last 3D installment of "Saw," having starred in the tense first installment of the horror franchise. He wrapped filming on Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" and previously starred in DreamWorks' "A Christmas Carol" with Jim Carrey, directed by Robert Zemeckis. He is currently filming "Yellow Submarine," as the voice of George Harrison.

Elwes made his cinematic debut in Marek Kanievska's film "Another Country," based on the award-winning play, and followed up with a starring role in the highly acclaimed historical drama "Lady Jane," alongside Helena Bonham Carter. He then turned in a memorable portrayal as Westley in Rob Reiner's classic fairytale "The Princess Bride," which won over audiences around the globe. Other film credits include the hit psychological thriller "Saw," the Academy Award-winning war epic "Glory," "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (directed by Francis Ford Coppola), Mel Brooks' "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," "Twister," "Liar Liar," "Kiss the Girls," "Shadow of the Vampire" and Garry Marshall's "Georgia Rule" with Jane Fonda.

On the small screen, Elwes recently starred in the pilot "Tough Trade," written and created by Jenji Kohan and directed by Gavin Hood. He also has a recurring role on the USA Network show "Psych" as Pierre Despereaux. His previous television credits include guest-starring on a gripping episode of "Law & Order: SVU" as a mob lawyer whose family is viciously attacked and portraying the young Pope in CBS's telepic "Pope John Paul II." Additionally Elwes starred in the Golden Globe award-winning HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon," "The Riverman," "Uprising" and had a recurring role as FBI Assistant Director Brad Follmer on the final season of "The X-Files."

Elwes was born and raised in London before moving to the States in his teens. He attended college in upstate New York and went on to study at the Actors Studio and the Lee Strasberg Institute. Ironically, however, it was back in his native England where Elwes began his film career. He later returned to New York before eventually relocating to Los Angeles.
