Birthday: May 20, 1960

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

The go-to performer for complicated and often conniving professionals throughout the 1990s and beyond, Tony Goldwyn essayed well-paid men with deep rivers of conflict in "Ghost" (1990), "The Pelican Brief" and "Kiss the Girls" (1997) before becoming the director of thoughtful dramas like "A Walk on the Moon" (1999), "The Last Kiss" (2007) and "Conviction" (2010). The grandson of Paramount Pictures chief and MGM's namesake Samuel Goldwyn, he began in theater and segued to television and film in the late 1980s. Moviegoers first became acquainted with him as Patrick Swayze's scheming partner in "Ghost," and he went on to play similar roles throughout the decade. The Age-of-Aquarius drama "A Walk on the Moon" established his directorial career, which saw him handling quality episodic television like "Dexter" (Showtime, 2007-13) and "Damages" (FX, 2007-12) in addition to feature work. His skill at all of these projects, including a 2010 stint in the Broadway musical "Promises, Promises," showed Goldwyn as one of the most versatile talents in the business and a credit to his family's illustrious Hollywood history.
