Val Kilmer stars in "Kill the Irishman," alongside Ray Stevenson, Christopher Walken and Vincent D'Onofrio, as Joe Manditski.

Val Kilmer is one of the most prolific actors of his generation. From his more recent work as a career military officer in David Mamet's "Spartan," back through his work with Oliver Stone in "The Doors" and Michael Mann in "Heat," to his early work in "Top Gun," Kilmer has worked with many of film's most respected directors and actors. He adds to that impressive list with two new films: Millennium's "Bad Lieutenant," with Nicolas Cage and directed by Werner Herzog, and "Streets of Blood," with Sharon Stone and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.

Other recent projects include Ric Roman Waugh's "Felon," with Stephen Dorff; "Déjà vu," an action- thriller produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films for Touchstone Pictures in which Kilmer stars with Denzel Washington and Jim Caviezel; and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," written and directed by Shane Black, and co- starring Robert Downey, Jr.

Kilmer is currently in production on Francis Ford Coppola's thriller "Twixt Now and Sunrise," starring alongside Elle Fanning and Bruce Dern.

The youngest student ever admitted to the drama department at Juilliard, Kilmer made his feature debut in the comedy "Top Secret," which he followed up with "Real Genius" and his breakout role as the Iceman in Tony Scott's "Top Gun," opposite Tom Cruise.

Kilmer's other memorable roles include the title character in "Batman Forever," Doc Holliday in "Tombstone" and Simon Templar in "The Saint." His other starring roles include "True Romance," directed by Tony Scott; Ron Howard's "Willow"; "At First Sight"; and "Thunderheart." He won the 2003 Prism Award for his work in "The Salton Sea," and appeared in the 3-D epic "Wings of Courage," as well as voicing the character of Moses in the animated film "The Prince of Egypt."

Kilmer's films also include Oliver Stone's "Alexander," Renny Harlin's "Mindhunters," the animated feature "Delgo," Ron Howard's "The Missing" and "Wonderland." Kilmer most recently starred in "MacGruber," a comedy based on the SNL spoof sketch of "MacGyver."

During the production of "Wonderland," Kilmer began a photography project that blossomed into a behind- the-scenes pictorial book. Released by Pocket Book, the photographs were exhibited in several cities in the United States.

When Kilmer was at Juilliard, he co-wrote the play "How It All Began," based on the true story of a West German radical. The play was directed by Des McAnuff and produced by Joseph Papp for the Public Theatre. He made his Broadway debut in the 1983 production of "Slab Boys," with Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon. He also appeared in Papp's Delacorte Theatre production of "Henry IV: Part One," "As You Like It," the title role of "Hamlet" and "'Tis Pity She's A Whore," also at Papp's Public Theatre. He starred in the Max Azria produced musical "The Ten Commandments" as Moses at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. In 2005, he starred on London's West End at the Playhouse Theater in Andrew Rattenbury's adaptation of "The Postman Always Rings Twice" as Frank Chambers, the drifter played by Jack Nicholson in the 1981 film version.

On television, Kilmer starred in the critically acclaimed HBO original movie "The Man Who Broke 1,000 Chains," for which he received a CableACE nomination, and in Gore Vidal's "Billy the Kid," playing the title role.
