Biography #2

Adam Goldberg, an actor and filmmaker, starred in Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan as ‘Private Mellish,' the cynical New Yorker who taunts the German soldiers with his Jewish heritage.

Goldberg was seen starring in the romantic comedy All Over the Guy, released by Lions Gate. More recently, he stars opposite Russell Crowe in Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind, from Universal.

Goldberg's additional feature credits include his screen debut in Billy Crystal's Mr. Saturday Night, his breakout performance in the venerable Richard Linklater hit Dazed and Confused, John Singleton's Higher Learning, The Prophecy with Christopher Walken and Ron Howard's EDtv. He also lent his voice to the wheelchair-bound Jack Russell terrier ‘Flealick' in Babe: Pig in the City.

Goldberg made his directing and screenwriting debut with Scotch and Milk, a neo-noir drama on which he also served as executive producer, co-editor and star. Shot in black and white, the jazz-laden film tells the story of a group of disaffected and lovelorn friends in their twenties who model their lives on hipster films of the ‘50's and ‘60's. The film made its world premiere at the 1998 L.A. Independent Film Festival, won the Grand Jury Prize as Best Feature at the 1998 Idyllwild Film Festival and took top honors at the 1998 Flagstaff Film Festival.

Goldberg most recently completed his latest screenplay, I Love Your Work, which he will direct.

For television, he appeared as a regular on the series Relativity, had a recurring role as Chandler's obsessive roommate on Friends, guest starred on E.R., NYPD Blue, Love and War, Murphy Brown and Designing Women.

Born in Santa Monica, California and raised in Hollywood, Goldberg began studying acting at the age of 14, and enrolled in the Lee Strasberg Institute in Los Angeles. He starred in a number of stage productions while attending Sarah Lawrence College, and recently appeared on stage opposite Robert Pastorelli in Act One, a critically acclaimed series of one-act plays at the Met Theatre in Los Angeles.
