Wiki Biography: An actor with a talent for mining the neuroses of his characters for both comedic and dramatic effect and a filmmaker adept at exploring the philosophical questions at the heart of the human experience, Adam Goldberg has solidified his position as a versatile and unique talent. Goldberg will soon be seen starring in FOX's new comedy, "Head Cases" (2005) as Shultz, a lawyer suffering from a explosive disorder who insinuates himself into the life of a fellow lawyer (played by Chris O'Donnell) recovering from a nervous breakdown. The two eventually join forces to start a law firm both to take on the cases of underdog clients who need their help, but just as importantly to try to keep each other sane. The series will premiere on Wednesday, September 14th. Goldberg co-wrote and directed the upcoming feature I Love Your Work (2003), which was produced through his production company and will be released in Los Angeles on November 4th by Think Film. The film, starring Giovanni Ribisi, Franka Potente, Christina Ricci and Joshua Jackson, with a cameo by Elvis Costello, is about the gradual meltdown of a fictional movie star. Goldberg also composed the film's original music with The Flaming Lips' drummer Steven Drozd. Goldberg was most recently seen on the big screen in Donald Petrie's How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) with Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson, Jonathan Kesselman's send-up The Hebrew Hammer (2003), D.J. Caruso's drug noir The Salton Sea (2002) with Val Kilmer, and Ron Howard's Academy Award-winning film A Beautiful Mind (2001) with Russell Crowe. Goldberg made his feature film debut in 1991 as Billy Crystal's younger brother-in-law in Mr. Saturday Night (1992). Additional film credits include Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan (1998) with Tom Hanks, Ron Howard's Edtv (1999), Richard Linklater's ode to 1970s high school life, Dazed and Confused (1993) as well as Waking Life (2001), John Singleton's Higher Learning (1995), Gregory Widen's The Prophecy (1995) opposite Christopher Walken, and lent his voice to George Miller's Babe: Pig in the City (1998). As a filmmaker, Goldberg wrote, directed and starred in the "neo-noir", Scotch and Milk (1998), which made its debut in 1998 at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival, and was featured on the Sundance Channel series "10 Best Films You May Never Seen." In addition, Goldberg directed, co-edited, and produced the comic documentary short, Running with the Bulls (2003) (TV) for the Independent Film Channel. A familiar presence on television, Goldberg's recent credits include Marcus Nispel's made-for-television film Frankenstein (2004) (TV) opposite Parker Posey, guest-starring appearances on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (2001), "The Practice" (1997), "Will & Grace" (1998), and a popular recurring role on "Friends" (1994). Additional credits include "The Outer Limits" (1995), "ER" (1994), and "NYPD Blue" (1993). Goldberg was born in Los Angeles, and after many years in New York, currently lives there.
