A stage actor of great recognition, Stephen Lang has shaped a formidable career on and off the various stages of the United States and abroad. Broadway roles include a Tony-nominated performance as a homeless man in ‘The Speed of Darkness’, Happy in the Dustin Hoffman revival of ‘Death of a Salesman’, Colonel Jessep in ‘A Few Good Men’ and a thief alongside Quentin Tarantino and Marisa Tomei in ‘Wait Until Dark’.
Off-Broadway credits include John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Defiance’, Anne Nelson’s ‘The Guys’, Arthur Miller’s ‘Finishing the Picture’, and his own play ‘Beyond Glory’ for which he received a Helen Hayes Award nomination. Television and Film credits include celebrated performances as Babe Ruth and Stonewall Jackson in ‘Babe Ruth’ and ‘Gods and Generals’ respectively, as well as acclaimed performances in ‘Last Exit to Brooklyn’, ‘Tombstone’, ‘Gettysburg’, Michael Mann’s hit TV show ‘Crime Story’ and an NBC revival of ‘The Fugitive’ featuring Tim Daly.
For Supanova fans Stephen is best known for his role of Colonel Miles Quaritch from James Cameron’s Smash-hit ‘Avatar’. Providing the perfect foil to Sam Worthington’s hero-gone-native, the militaristic Colonel gave the film a villain you could really love to hate. Stephen’s pop culture credits are coming thick and fast now though as he is working on the new Stephen Spielberg TV series shooting in Queensland, ‘Terra Nova’ in addition to being on the big-screen later in the year in ‘Conan the Barbarian’.
He has been nominated for and won numerous awards including the Grace Prize, Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Helen Hayes, and Tony awards.
