Tim Robbins stars in "Green Lantern" as Hammond, a staple of the long-running DC Comics series. The comic book movie stars Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. Robbins also recently starred in HBO's "Cinema Verite," a television movie that explored the origin of reality television.

Tim Robbins is a highly respected member of the entertainment community, with a long list of credits as an actor, director, writer, and producer of both films and theater.

He received an Oscar, Golden Globe, and SAG award for his performance in Clint Eastwood's gripping drama "Mystic River." Robbins has also been honored with numerous awards for his role in Robert Altman's "The Player" and Frank Darabont's "The Shawshank Redemption," widely regarded as two of the most iconic films of the 1990s.

Equally successful behind the camera, Robbins received an Oscar nomination for Best Director and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Screenplay for "Dead Man Walking," which he also produced. The highly acclaimed film won numerous awards, including an Academy Award for Best Actress for star Susan Sarandon. His directorial debut, "Bob Roberts," also received numerous awards. He went on to distinguish himself with "Cradle Will Rock," a hugely ambitious musical that he also wrote and produced.

Among Robbins' other film credits as an actor are "The Secret Life of Words," "Catch a Fire," Robert Altman's "Short Cuts," "The Hudsucker Proxy," "War of the Worlds," "Arlington Road," "Code 46," "Human Nature," "Five Corners," "Jacob's Ladder," and the classic baseball movie "Bull Durham."

As a playwright, Robbins has been produced in London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland. His 2003 play, "Embedded," sold out for over four months at the Public Theater in New York before playing in London and embarking on a national tour of the U.S. From 2006 until the present, Le Petit Theatre de Pain's production of "Embedded" has been touring France. His most recent play, "Break the Whip," the first of a planned trilogy exploring the beginnings of the United States, recently played to sold-out audiences at the Actors Gang Theater in LA.

Robbins serves as the Artistic Director for the Actors Gang, a theater company founded in 1982, and with over eighty productions and a hundred awards to their credit. Robbins recently directed an successful, shockingly relevant stage adaptation of George Orwell's "1984."
