Lee Pace

Following his breakthrough performance in Soldier's Girl and several acclaimed turns on the stages of New York, Lee Pace makes his mark onscreen this fall with three highly anticipated new projects.

In addition to The Good Shepherd, Pace stars in Infamous (Warner Independent Pictures), Doug McGrath's take on Truman Capote's chronicle of the Clutter family murders. Pace's performance as Dick Hickcock resonates amongst a cast that includes Toby Jones, Sandra Bullock, Daniel Craig, Hope Davis and Sigourney Weaver. On September 9, the Toronto Film Festival unveiled Tarsem's The Fall, an epic fantasy in which Pace stars as the Black Bandit.

As transgendered nightclub performer Calpernia Adams, whose lover, Private Barry Winchell (Troy Garity), was beaten to death because of their relationship, Pace received Gotham Award, Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations for Soldier's Girl. His credits also include James Ivory's The White Countess, with Ralph Fiennes and Natasha Richardson, and Fox's cult comedy series Wonderfalls.

A Juilliard School alumnus, Pace began his career onstage. He most recently starred in Peter Morris' Guardians, a two-character monologue play inspired by the Abu Ghraib scandals. Jason Moore directed the production for the Culture Project last spring. For his performance as a haunted Bosnian economics student/Oedipus in Craig Lucas' Small Tragedy (a play within a play, directed by Mark Wing-Davey for Playwrights Horizons), Pace garnered a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Outstanding Actor and shared an Obie Award with the ensemble. He portrayed a gangster in Janusz Glowacki's The Fourth Sister (directed by Lisa Peterson for Vineyard Theatre) and a painter whose obsession with a French artist sends his life into a tailspin in the Playwrights Horizons production of Keith Bunin's The Credeaux Canvas, directed by Michael Mayer.
