Biography

Holmes Osborne has portrayed many a father and authority figure throughout his lengthy career, which began in the '60s with an inauspicious start in low-profile films and TV series. In 1996, he appeared in "That Thing You Do!", which chronicled the rise and fall of a one-hit-wonder band; in the film, he portrayed a disapproving father of one band member. Osborne later portrayed the father of Chris Klein's genial jock in "Election", a high school-based political satire. He next landed guest roles on the sci-fi conspiracy series "The X-Files" and the family drama "Providence" before returning to the big screen as Kirsten Dunst's supportive father in "Bring It On", about the heated competition between a wealthy high school cheerleading squad and an inner-city rival. Osborne landed his biggest role yet in 2001 when he was cast as Jake Gyllenhaal's distant but loving father in Richard Kelly's psycho-thriller fantasy "Donnie Darko"; Osborne has since appeared in Kelly's largely-dismissed sci-fi satire "Southland Tales" and as a police officer in the human experimentation drama "The Box". After portraying the president of the United States in the short-lived TV series "Seven Days", about a time-traveling government organization, Osborne landed a supporting role as a sympathetic journalist in the American-Vietnamese thriller "The Quiet American". He also appeared as a small town mayor coping with the strange aftermath of a hurricane in the quickly-canceled series "Invasion".
