Eric Bogosian is the author of two plays, includingTALK RADIO and SUBURBIA, as well as three Obie award-winning solos: DRINKING IN AMERICA, SEX, DRUGS, ROCK & ROLL, and POUNDING NAILS IN THE FLOOR WITH MY FOREHEAD. He is best known for starring as the misanthropic radio “shock-jock Barry Champlain in Oliver Stone’s film version of his own TALK RADIO. (Bogosian received the Berlin Film Festival’s “Silver Bear” for his work on the film.) Bogosian’s solos, plays, and the novella NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND have been published both here and abroad. He stars occasionally on film and television, notably as Lt. Greenwood in Robert Altman’s CAINE MUTINY COURT MARTIAL and as the evil Travis Dane in UNDER SIEGE 2, opposite Steven Seagal. His solo SEX, DRUGS, ROCK & ROLL, originally directed by Jo Bonney, was filmed by John McNaughton and is available on video. Bogosian’s plays and solos have been staged around the world, including a long-running version of SEX, DRUGS, ROCK & ROLL in Buenos Aires, and a tour of POUNDING NAILS IN THE FLOOR WITH MY FOREHEAD in Italy. SUBURBIA, which enjoyed a sold-out run at Lincoln Center in 1994, has been performed around the U.S. and Berlin. Bogosian lives in New York City with his wife and collaborator, Jo Bonney, and their two children. Bogosian is on the world wide web at
