James Woods is an American actor, producer and director with numerous feature films, television movies and mini-series to his credit.

He earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Mini-Series or Special for Promise, for which he also won a Golden Globe Award, and an Emmy Award in the same Lead Actor category for My Name is Bill W.

Woods' breakout film performance came in 1979 in The Onion Field. His additional film credits include Once Upon A Time in America, Against All Odds, Videodrome, Casino, True Believer, The Virgin Suicides, Scary Movie 2, Northfork and Pretty Persuasion.

Among his additional television credits are the movies Rudy: The Rudy Giuliani Story, Citizen Cohn and Indictment: The McMartin Trial, all of which earned him Emmy Award nominations, as well as the mini-series Holocaust, and guest-starring roles in ER and Entourage.

Prior to pursuing his film career, Woods appeared on stage in New York in plays such as the Broadway production of Moon Children, for which he was honoured with a Theatre World Award, and in the Off-Broadway production of Saved, for which he won an Obie Award and Clarence Derwent Award.

He attended M.I.T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where he excelled in his studies as a political science major. He left in his senior year to pursue acting.

Woods was born in Vernal, Utah, raised in Warwick, Rhode Island, and currently lives in Los Angeles.
