Barry Pepper

Barry Pepper came by on September 23, 2009 to talk about his new movie Like Dandelion Dust. I have enjoyed seeing him in several movies, especially in Saving Private Ryan, The Three Burials of Melquiades and 61.

Here is some info about Barry from Wikipedia. I do not know how accurate it is:

Barry Robert Pepper (born April 4, 1970) is a Canadian-born actor.

Pepper was born in Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada. He spent much of his early life travelling the world in a homemade ship. When Barry was five years old, the family set sail. Pepper and his family navigated through the South Pacific islands for five years. His education was completed in both public schools and correspondence courses. Due to the lack of television as entertainment, the family used sketch acting as a means of fun. When the family had finished their travels, they returned to Canada and set up a shop on Denman Island off Vancouver Island.

He is perhaps best known for his role as the Christian sniper Private Daniel Jackson in Saving Private Ryan; as prison guard Dean Stanton in The Green Mile, as Frank Slaughtery in Spike Lee's 25th Hour, as journalist Joseph L. Galloway in We Were Soldiers, his leading role in the film Battlefield Earth, his depiction of Roger Maris in Billy Crystal's HBO film 61*, as Dale Earnhardt in the ESPN produced film 3: The Dale Earnhardt Story, and as Dan in the film Seven Pounds. He appeared in the Jagged Edge music video "Goodbye". Most recently, Pepper provided the voice for Alex Mercer, the protagonist of the video game Prototype.
Pepper won the Razzie Award for Worst Actor for his performance in Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000. He has stated that, had he known he was going to win the award in advance, he would have gladly accepted it in person.
