Sam Worthington stars in "Man on a Ledge," opposite Elizabeth Banks, Anthony Mackie and Jamie Bell, as Nick Cassidy.

Worthington recently starred in John Madden's post-World War II espionage thriller "The Debt," opposite Helen Mirren and Tom Wilkinson, as a young version of David Peretz, played in his later years by Ciarán Hinds. Other recent and upcoming films in which Worthington stars include Massy Tadjedin's "Last Night," opposite Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes; Asger Leth's "Man on a Ledge," with Jamie Bell and Ed Harris; and Ami Canaan Mann's "The Dark Fields," produced by Michael Mann, reteaming with Jessica Chastain of "The Debt."

Sam Worthington also starred in James Cameron's mega blockbuster "Avatar." The director handpicked Worthington to star in the groundbreaking 3D science fiction feature following an exhaustive international casting search. "Avatar" has now earned more than $2.35 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the top-grossing film of all time, surpassing Cameron's own "Titanic" after a 12-year reign. Among its numerous honors, "Avatar" won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Drama, and earned nine Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, and winning three. Earlier in 2009, Worthington starred with Christian Bale in the McG-directed sci-fi action hit "Terminator Salvation," which grossed more than $370 million worldwide.

In addition, Worthington also recently starred in the lead role of Louis Leterrier's "Clash of the Titans" (2010) as Perseus. Worthington is reprising his role in the sequel "Wrath of the Titans," directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

A native of Australia, Worthington graduated from Sydney's prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in 1998. Upon graduation, he continued to act on the stage, appearing in a production of "Judas Kiss," directed by Neil Armfield for Company B at the Belvoir Street Theatre.

In 2000, Worthington made his feature film debut with a starring role in the Australian film "Bootmen," in the role of Adam Garcia's brooding older brother. His performance garnered him an Australian Film Institute (AFI) Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. His subsequent Australian film credits include "Dirty Deeds," with John Goodman, Toni Collette and Sam Neill, for which he earned a Film Critics Circle of Australia (FCCA) Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor; and "Gettin' Square," with David Wenham. He also had a small role in the World War II drama "Hart's War," starring Bruce Willis.

However, it was his layered performance in Cate Shortland's critically acclaimed and commercially successful 2004 film "Somersault" that brought Worthington international attention. He won an AFI Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and earned his second FCCA Award nomination. In addition, the film made a clean sweep of the year's AFI Awards, winning in all 13 film categories—a first in the awards' history.

Worthington went on to star in the title role of Geoffrey Wright's 2006 contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth." He has also been seen in John Dahl's "The Great Raid" and the horror thriller "Rogue."

Worthington's Australian television credits include starring roles in two award-winning projects: "Love My Way," which has won three AFI Awards for Best Television Drama Series; and "The Surgeon," which was nominated for an AFI Award for Best Telefeature or Miniseries. He also starred in the "Delivery Man" episode of "Two Twisted," a "Twilight Zone"-like anthology series produced by Bryan Brown.

In 2010, with John and Michael Schwarz, Worthington founded Full Clip Prods. The company is producing original content for several mediums and platforms. Full Clip's first graphic novel, "Damaged," was issued in the summer of 2011; feature films are in development; and the company has signed a first-look and development deal with NBCUniversal International, which is the international television production division of NBCUniversal.
