ERIC BOGOSIAN is the author of the plays "Talk Radio" (NYSF/Public Theater), "subUrbia" (Lincoln Center Theater) and "Griller" (Chicago's Goodman Theatre and Baltimore's Centerstage Theater), as well as three Obie Award winning solos: "Drinking In America", "Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll", "Pounding Nails in the Floor with My Forehead" and his most recent "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee". He wrote the screen adaptations of his first two plays, receiving the Berlin Film Festival's "Silver Bear" for his work on "Talk Radio".

As an actor, Bogosian has appeared in over a dozen feature films. He is best known for starring as the misanthropic "shock-jock" Barry Champlain in Oliver Stone's film version of his own "Talk Radio". In the past few years, he has appeared in films as disparate as Woody Allen's "Deconstructing Harry", Steven Segal's "Under Siege 2", and the HBO movie "A Bright Shining Lie". He will be appearing in the upcoming CBS film "Blonde" based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates.

Bogosian's work has been staged around the United States and the world. His solos and plays, as well as a novella "Notes from Underground" are published by Theatre Communications Group. A live recording of "Pounding Nails in the Floor with my Forehead" is available on CD from the Blackbird Recording Company.

His first novel "Mall" will be published by Simon & Schuster in November.

Bogosian lives in New York City.
