Why make a Lou Diamond Phillips page, you ask? Well, I'll tell you why. While surfing the internet, I have seen hundreds of pages devoted to all kinds of performers (some a lot less talented than others), but I have often noticed that there seems to be a lack of information about good actors who might not be as famous as pretty-boy teen idols (oh, Leo, oh Leo!). After seeing the movie "The Big Hit," with Mark Wahlberg, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Avery Brooks (among others), I decided that Phillips is definitely one of my favorite actors -- especially as a villain -- and that there really ought to be a web page for him... Since I am trying to teach myself how to produce web pages, who better than to start a Lou Diamond Phillips page than me?! So there ya go!

Phillips' extensive theater credits include "P.S. Your Cat Is Dead," "The Lady's Not For Burning," "Doctor Faustus," "Hamlet," a new adaptation of Bertolt Brecht's "The Good Person of Szechwan" with Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, and of course, "The King and I."

In addition to his acting talents, Phillips has established himself as a writer and director. His first produced screenplay, "Ambition," in which he also starred, was released by Miramax in 1992. His directorial debut was "Dangerous Touch," a psychological thriller for Trimark and HBO, in association with Facet Films (Phillips' own production company). Phillips also directed "Sioux City" for Cabin Fever Entertainment, which received strong critical notices across the U.S. and a Gold Medal Award at the International Film Festival in Houston, Texas.

A native of Texas, Phillips has been acting since the sixth grade and has been active in the Dallas/Fort Worth theater and film community. When not on location, Phillips lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Kelly, and their twin daughters. He recently signed to star in the NBC drama "Adversaries," the new series created by "ER" executive producer John Wells.
