Ed Harris stars in "Man on a Ledge," opposite Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks, as David Englander. Harris will next be seen on screen in Dustin Lance Black's "What's Wrong with Virginia?"

Ed Harris recently starred in HBO's movie "Game Change," as Senator John McCain, Peter Weir's epic adventure "The Way Back," opposite Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess, "Touching Home," which was written and directed by the film's co-stars Noah and Logan Miller, and "Appaloosa," co-starring Renee Zellweger and Viggo Mortensen. Harris, who co-wrote the screenplay for the latter film with Robert Knott, is also its director and a producer. Set in 1882, the film revolves around two lawmen hired to bring order to Appaloosa, a dusty town suffering at the hands of a renegade rancher. The arrival of an attractive, beguiling widow disrupts their plans. It is based on the classic novel by Robert B. Parker.

Harris previously starred in "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," opposite Nicolas Cage, the thriller "The Cleaner," opposite Samuel L. Jackson, and "Gone, Baby, Gone," the critically lauded directorial debut of screenwriter/actor Ben Affleck, based on a novel by Dennis Lehane ("Mystic River").

In 2006, Ed Harris starred on screen in the title role of Agnieska Holland's "Copying Beethoven." The film was Harris' third feature-film collaboration with director Holland. He also starred on stage in Neil LaBute's one-character play, "Wrecks," at New York's Public Theater. The play marked Wrecks' U.S. debut, with Harris reprising the role he created for its world premiere in Ireland at the Everymen Palace Theatre.

In 2005, Harris co-starred with Viggo Mortensen in David Cronenberg's critically acclaimed "A History of Violence." His performance earned him a National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actor.

He also starred in 2005 with Paul Newman in the HBO miniseries "Empire Falls," based on Richard Russo's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and directed by Fred Schepisi. He was nominated for a SAG Award, Golden Globe and Emmy, all as Best Actor, for that performance.

In 2003, Harris earned his fourth Academy Award nomination, a Golden Globe nomination, a Screen Actors Guild nomination, and a BAFTA nomination as Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Stephen Daldry's "The Hours." Previously, he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for "Pollock," his widely acclaimed directorial debut. The film co-starred Marcia Gay Harden, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Harris' other film credits include "Winter Passing," "Radio," "The Human Stain," "Buffalo Soldiers," "A Beautiful Mind," "Stepmom," "The Truman Show" (for which he received an Academy Award nomination and won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor), "Apollo 13" (for which he was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe and for which he won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actor), "The Right Stuff," "A Flash of Green," "Walker," "The Third Miracle," "Alamo Bay," "Places in the Heart," "Sweet Dreams," "Jacknife," "State of Grace," and "The Firm."

His television credits include "The Last Innocent Man," "Running Mates," "Paris Trout," and "Riders of the Purple Sage" (for which he and his wife, Amy Madigan, as co-producers and co-stars of the film, were presented with the Western Heritage Wrangler Award for Outstanding Television Feature Film).

On stage, Harris received both an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination (Outstanding Solo Performance) and a Lucille Lortel Award nomination (Outstanding Solo Show) for the off-Broadway production of "Wrecks" at New York City's Public Theatre. He originated the role, with writer/director Neil LaBute, for the play's world premiere at the Everyman Palace Theatre in Cork, Ireland and recently reprised it to critical acclaim at the Geffen Theater in Los Angeles.

Harris also starred in the 1996 Broadway premiere of Ronald Harwood's "Taking Sides." He made his New York stage debut in Sam Shepard's "Fool for Love," for which he earned an Obie Award as Outstanding Actor. For his performance in the Broadway production of George Furth's "Precious Sons," he won the 1985-86 Drama Desk Award as Outstanding Actor. His other stage credits include "Prairie Avenue," "Scar," "A Streetcar Named Desire," "The Grapes of Wrath," "Sweet Bird of Youth," and "Simpatico," for which he received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actor.
