Bill Pullman
Name : Bill Pullman
Height : 6' 1" (185 cm)
Date of Birth : 17 December 1953
Place of Birth : Hornell, New York, USA
 
Biography:
 
Born in rural Hornell, New York, on 17 December 1953, Pullman was the sixth of seventh children. He grew up with an interest in construction work and after graduating from high school, he enrolled in a technical college. A random visit to a local drama club and subsequent meeting with a drama teacher convinced Pullman that he wanted to perform on the stage. He went on to earn a BA in theatre from the State University of New York. After attaining a Masters in directing from the University of Massachusetts, Pullman joined a theatre company and performed throughout South Dakota and Montana.

Then Pullman decided to move to New York to further his stage career. In 1985, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue more theatre work, and the next year he made his film debut with a small role in Ruthless People. More substantial work came the next years, such as Spaceballs (1987), The Accidental Tourist (1988), A League of Their Own (1992), Singles (1992), Sommersby (1993), and Sleepless in Seattle (1993).

Fortunately for Pullman, he was able to prove his versatility with his deliciously nasty role as a sleazy husband in The Last Seduction (1994). He then returned to play nice guys when he starred in While You Were Sleeping (1995) and Casper (1995). The success of these films allowed Pullman to continue to display his versatility in a number of high-profile projects: Lost Highway (1996) and played the President of the United States in the monstrously profitable Independence Day (1996). In 1998, Pullman starred as a private detective in the comedy thriller Zero Effect.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Pullman began to work behind the scenes when he founded Big Town, his own production company in 1995.
