Tony Curran stars in "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son," opposite Martin Lawrence, Brandon T. Jackson and Jessica Lucas, as Chirkoff. Curran also stars in Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn," as Lt. Delcourt.

Curran recently starred in the Starz miniseries "The Pillars of the Earth" as Maud's cousin, King Stephen.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Tony Curran attended the Holyrood School and made his TV debut at the age of 16 in the popular children's show "Dramarama." He was a participant in the Scottish Youth Theatre, and later enrolled at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Upon graduation, he landed his first film appearance opposite Robin Williams in "Being Human."

Over the next few years, Tony served his acting apprenticeship in numerous supporting roles both in films such as "Shallow Grave," "Go Now" and "Coming Down" and on TV in "Tales of Para Handy," "Soldier, Soldier" and "Grange Hill."

During this time, Tony also established himself as a notable stage actor, performing in "The Last Romantics," "The Boat Plays," and "Dogs Barking," amongst others.

He toured Singapore with the Arches Theatre production of "Richard III" and won the Evening News National Award for his portrayal of "The Devil" in "The Soldier's Tale."

After landing strong supporting roles in several studio films, including "The 13th Warrior," "Gladiator," and "Blade 2," Tony was cast as the leading role of "The Invisible Man" in the Fox feature, "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman" with Sean Connery.

At this time, Tony started splitting his time between the UK and Los Angeles. He was quickly hired again by Fox for another leading role in "Flight of the Pheonix," opposite Dennis Quaid. Tony's currency with A list directors and Hollywood studios continued to flourish with roles in Michael Mann's "Miami Vice," Steven Soderbergh's "The Good German," Screen Gem's blockbuster franchise "Underworld: Evolution," Neil Jordan's "Ondine" and Sony's "Midnight Meat Train."

On the small screen in America, Tony has booked series regular roles in the pilots "Bunker Hill," "Enemies" and "Amped." He has also appeared in memorable guest spots on such hit series as "Numb3rs," "Medium," "24" and "The Mentalist."

Though Tony currently resides in Los Angeles, he has never strayed far from his Scottish roots. In 2007, he starred on stage opposite Alan Cummings in "The Bacchae" and in the British indie film, "Red Road," directed by Andrea Arnold, which won him both the Scottish BAFTA Award for Best Actor, as well as the British Independent Film Award for Best Actor. The film also won the Cannes Jury Prize, the London Film Festival Sutherland Trophy and 5 Scottish BAFTA awards, amongst many others. This year, Tony also appears in a two episode arc, directed by Richard Curtis, as Vincent Van Gough in Britain's long running, hugely popular series, "Dr. Who."

Tony has also tapped into the American independent film world, starring in such festival favorites as "Shuttle," "Golf in the Kingdom," "The Lazarus Project" and "Beowulf and Grendel."
