Bill Pullman stars in "Too Big to Fail," opposite William Hurt, as Jamie Dimon. The HBO movie offers an intimate look at the epochal Wall Street financial crisis of 2008 and explores the inner sanctum of the powerful men and women who decided the fate of the world's economy in a matter of a few weeks.

Bill Pullman recently starred in Michael Winterbottom's "The Killer Inside Me," opposite Casey Affleck, Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba, and "Phoebe in Wonderland," with Felicity Huffman, Patricia Clarkson and Elle Fanning.

Bill Pullman started acting professionally in the New York theater in 1983, and shortly after began his film career which currently spans nearly fifty features. His movie work includes blockbuster comedies ("Ruthless People," "Spaceballs," "Casper"), dramas ("The Serpent and the Rainbow," "The Accidental Tourist," "Igby Goes Down"), romantic comedies ("Sleepless in Seattle," "While You Were Sleeping"), action, ("Independence Day"), thrillers ("Malice"), westerns ("The Virginian," "Wyatt Earp"), noir ("The Last Seduction," "Lost Highway," "The Zero Effect"), horror ("The Grudge"), and a television miniseries ("Revelations"). Recent films he has completed: "Bottle Shock" (with Alan Rickman), "Surveillance," "You Kill Me," "The Nobel Son" and "Your Name Here."

His theater work includes acting in the Broadway world premiere of Edward Albee's "The Goat" (Drama Desk nomination) and Albee's most recent production "Peter" & "Jerry," as well as productions of new plays by Beth Henley (with Holly Hunter) and Thomas Babe (with Tom Waits). He was nominated for the Helen Hayes award for his work in the Kennedy Center production of "The Subject Was Roses." Bill directed for the anthology TV series "Night Visions" and directed and produced the TNT movie "The Virginian" (Wrangler Award/Best Picture, 2000).

Bill has been an "Ambassador" for the MS Society since 1998, serves on the board of Cornerstone Theater Company (using theater collaborations to engage the issues of underserved communities), and has helped facilitate health programs in his hometown of Hornell, New York where his father practiced medicine.

Bill received a BA from the State University College at Oneonta, and an MFA in Theater Directing from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He taught in the Theater Department at Montana State University in Bozeman for two years before heading to New York.
