Bio

Tony Goldwyn is an American actor and director best remembered as the villain Carl Bruner in the 1990 feature film Ghost, who had his friend and co-worker Sam Wheat (played by Patrick Swayze) killed.

He currently stars as President Fitzgerald Grant in the political thriller television series Scandal (also known as The Fixer), since 2012.

Previously Goldwyn was seen on the big screen in CBS Films' remake of The Mechanic, with Jason Statham, and starring on Broadway in the revival of the hit musical Promises, Promises.

His feature directorial effort, Conviction, starring Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell, won Best Film at the Boston Film Festival and a Freedom of Expression Award from 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 received universal praise from critics and won a National Board of Review Award for Excellence in Independent Filmmaking.

Goldwyn had read Pamela Gray's script five years earlier, shepherding it through multiple drafts until Dustin Hoffman joined as a producer and got the project financed.

Coincidentally when Gray originally wrote the screenplay as her Master's thesis at UCLA Film School, she won the Samuel Goldwyn Writing Award, an honor established by Goldwyn's paternal grandfather, the legendary film producer.

Additional feature directorial credits include The Last Kiss, based on Gabriele Muccino's L'Ultimo Bacio, which won Best Director at the Boston Film Festival, and the romantic comedy Someone Like You.

On the small screen Goldwyn has helmed 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. He went on to appear 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 Mini-Series From the Earth to the Moon, Frasier, Murphy Brown and Designing Women, where he touchingly portrayed the first AIDS victim on a primetime series.

Goldwyn began his acting career on the stage, spending seven seasons at the Williamstown Theater Festival.

His New York theatre 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.
