Wiki Biography: Bochner made his feature film debut portraying George C. Scott's son in Ernest Hemingway's Islands in the Stream and would go on to gain notice for his role in the Academy award-winning Breaking Away. However, it was his role in Die Hard, opposite Bruce Willis, that would earn him pop culture status. His performance as the obnoxiously sleazy Harry ("Hans, Bubby") Ellis was bestowed the #2 spot on Maxim's "The Greatest Movie Sleazeballs Of All Time" list. Other films also include playing opposite Susan Sarandon in Wayne Wang's Anywhere But Here, Break Up with Bridget Fonda, the cult hit, Apartment Zero opposite Colin Firth, George Cukor's Rich and Famous, with Jacqueline Bisset, and John Schlesinger's The Innocent, opposite Anthony Hopkins. On television, Bochner starred in the Emmy award-winning epic miniseries, War and Remembrance, Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, John Steinbeck's East of Eden, And The Sea Will Tell, Children of the Dust, and Haywire. He would inevitably transition to behind-the-scenes work as a director, making his debut with the cult comedy PCU for Twentieth Century Fox, and High School High for Columbia Pictures. Just Add Water for Sony Pictures is his latest directorial effort, which he also wrote, and stars Danny Devito, Dylan Walsh, Jonah Hill, and Justin Long. He will next be seen starring in the upcoming Campbell Scott film, Company Retreat, as well as Spread opposite Ashton Kutcher. Most recently was seen starring as Debra Messing's love interest in the USA Network series The Starter Wife. Bochner lives in Los Angeles and is actively involved in several causes, sitting on the board of directors for the Environmental Media Association as well as the DGA-PAC Leadership Council, and L.A.'s Green Ribbon Commission. In 2008, Bochner was named Time Magazine's 'Greenest Celebrity in Hollywood'.
