Cary Elwes continues to impress critics and audiences with his wide array of roles which he embellishes with his distinct style and talent.
He appeared in the NBC mini-series, Uprising, opposite Jon Voight, Leelee Sobieski and David Schwimmer, a story about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising during the early 1940s.
Elwes appeared recently in Lions Gate's dramatic thriller, The Cat's Meow, opposite Kirsten Dunst and Eddie Izzard, based on the play by award-winning writer, Steven Peros, as well as Comic Book Villains. Upcoming projects include the feature film American Crime.
He starred with Willem Dafoe and John Malkovich in Lions Gate's Golden Globe nominated Shadow of the Vampire. The film rewrites film history with a comic edge by speculating that German director F.W. Murnau hired a real vampire as his leading man when making the 1922 classic Nosferatu.
Other films include director Tim Robbins' The Cradle Will Rock, with Emily Watson, John Tuturro, Vanessa Redgrave, Susan Sarandon and Phillip Baker Hall. Elwes made his cinematic debut in Marek Kanievska's Another Country. He was then chosen by the director of The Royal Shakespeare Company, Trevor Nunn, to star opposite Helena Bonham-Carter in the highly acclaimed
historical epic Lady Jane. This, in turn, led to Elwes being picked by Rob Reiner to star opposite Robin Wright in the now classic film, The Princess Bride.
The following year, Elwes appeared in the Academy Award®-winning Glory, directed by Ed Zwick. In 1990, Elwes starred opposite Tom Cruise in Tony Scott's action-filled Days of Thunder.
He then went on to do the comedy Hot Shots with Jim Abrahams. That same year, he worked with Francis Ford Coppola on Bram Stoker's Dracula. He has appeared in the blockbusters Twister, with Helen Hunt; Liar Liar, with Jim Carrey; and the suspense thriller Kiss the Girls, with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd. He also starred in the hilarious Robin Hood: Men in Tights and as famed Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins in HBO's critically acclaimed mini-series From the Earth to the Moon, produced by Tom
For television, he appeared in an episode of Fox's anthology series Night Visions.
