Greg Kinnear

First host of E!'s Talk Soup
Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear recently starred opposite Matt Damon in the Fox comedy Stuck on You. Before that he starred in the critically acclaimed Auto Focus, and in We Were Soldiers opposite Mel Gibson for writer-director Randall Wallace. The latter focused on the battle of La Drang, which lasted over a month during the Vietnam War. He starred in the critically acclaimed Norman Jewison HBO movie Dinner with Friends alongside Toni Collette, Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell. An adaptation of the Pulitzer-Prize winning play by Donald Margulies, the movie followed two married couples, the bittersweet relationship among them and the aftermath of a separation. Next up for Kinnear is the film The Matador, also starring Pierce Brosnan, Dylan Baker and Hope Davis. Over the past few years, he starred in the romantic comedy Someone Like You with Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman, Sam Raimi's supernatural thriller The Gift opposite Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes, and in director Neil LaBute's black comedy Nurse Betty opposite Renée Zellweger, Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock. Kinnear recently starred in Godsend opposite Robert De Niro for Lions Gate Films. Kinnear successfully established himself as a respected member of Hollywood's acting community with his heartfelt performance as Jack Nicholson's unfortunate neighbor Simon in James L. Brooks' Academy Award nominated film As Good As It Gets. The National Board of Review named Kinnear Best Supporting Actor, and he won Best Supporting Actor nominations from The Hollywood Foreign Press, The Screen Actors Guild and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Kinnear made his feature film debut in the Sydney Pollack-directed remake Sabrina, in which he co-starred with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond. His performance in Sabrina prompted the trade organization of movie theater owners to name him NATO ShoWest's Star of Tomorrow. Following his Oscar nominated performance in As Good As It Gets, he co-starred in Nora Ephron's hit romantic comedy You've Got Mail, opposite Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, Mike Nichols' What Planet Are You From? opposite Garry Shandling and Annette Bening, and appeared in a cameo role as Captain Amazing in Mystery Men. Kinnear first gained prominence as the animated, wisecracking host of E! Entertainment Television's Talk Soup, for which he won an Emmy Award, and established a cult-like following. As the host and executive producer of Talk Soup, Kinnear was the master of not one, but all talk shows, providing often-hilarious commentary on clips from such programs as Sally Jesse Raphael, Jerry Springer, and The Montel Williams Show. As the popularity of Talk Soup grew, Kinnear captured the attention of NBC executives who were searching for a replacement for Bob Costas, host of Later with Bob Costas. In 1994 Kinnear became the host and executive producer of his own NBC late night talk show, Later with Greg Kinnear. Source:
Here's the thing about movies, all movies end up on television. That's their life. Whether you like it or not, I don't care how much money you spend on it, or how big or broad the film is, or who the actors are in it, eventually it's all coming out of the box.More Greg Kinnear quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
