Tony Goldwyn stars in "The Mechanic," opposite Jason Statham and Donald Sutherland, as Dean Sanderson.

As an actor, director, and producer, Tony Goldwyn definitely likes to mix things up. In 2010 he saw the release of his latest feature directorial effort, "Conviction," starring Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell. Released by Fox Searchlight, "Conviction" is the true story of Betty Anne Waters, a single mother who embarked on an 18 year struggle to overturn her brother's wrongful life sentence for

murder. Like the story of the film, it took much persistence for Goldwyn to get the movie made. Nine years after he first heard the account of Kenny Waters from a piece on "Dateline," the movie had its premiere at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. "Conviction" was awarded Best Film at the Boston Film Festival and was bestowed the Freedom of Expression Award by the National Board of Review.

Goldwyn made an auspicious directorial debut with "A Walk on the Moon," starring Diane Lane and Viggo Mortensen. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to receive universal praise from critics. Additional feature directorial credits include "The Last Kiss," based on Gabriel Muccino's "L'Ultimo Bacio,"and the romantic comedy "Someone Like You." On the small screen, Goldwyn has helmed episodes of such prestigious shows as "Justified," "Damages," "Dexter," "The L Word," "Law & Order," "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice," and "Without a Trace."

As an actor, Goldwyn first caught audiences' attention with his portrayal of the villain in the box office smash "Ghost," opposite Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze. He went on to appear in numerous other films, including "The Pelican Brief" with Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington, "Kiss the Girls," Oliver Stone's "Nixon," "The Substance of Fire," "The Last Samurai" opposite Tom Cruise, and the recent remake of Wes Craven's classic "The Last House on the Left." He was also heard as the title voice in Disney's animated feature "Tarzan."



His television acting credits include "The Good Wife," "Dexter," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Without a Trace," "The L Word," The HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon," "Frasier," "Murphy Brown," and "Designing Women," where he touchingly portrayed the first AIDS victim ever seen on a prime time series.

Goldwyn began his acting career on the stage, spending seven seasons as the famed Williamstown Theater Festival. His New York theater credits include "The Water's Edge" at the 2nd Stage Theater, "The Dying Gaul" at the Vineyard Theater, "Holiday" at The Circle in the Square opposite Laura Linney, "Spike Heels" with Kevin Bacon at 2nd Stage, "The Sum of Us" at the Cherry Lane Theater, for which he earned an Obie Award, and "Digby" at the Manhattan Theater Club.
