Biography for Carl Franklin

Carl Franklin studied history and dramatic arts at UC Berkeley. After several years as a television actor with guest shots, roles in TV movies, miniseries, and appearing as a regular on a few unsuccessful series, he returned to school and received his master's degree in directing from the American Film Institute. He was then hired by Roger Corman's Concorde Films because they were impressed with his thesis film.

Although it took several years, in 1992 Franklin made his directorial breakthrough with the crime drama One False Move (1992), the story of a manhunt for three small-time criminals after a drug deal that had gone bad. The film also earned him the New Generation Award by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association in 1992, the MTV Movie Award for Best New Filmmaker and the IFP Spirit Award for Best Director in 1993.

Franklin wrote and directed Denzel Washington in Devil in a Blue Dress (1995). Despite rave reviews from the critics, the film failed to attract an audience. In 1998 Franklin directed the adaptation of Anna Quindlen's autobiographical novel One True Thing (1998) with Meryl Streep, Renée Zellweger, and William Hurt. This film, too, had difficulty at the box office, but earned Streep Oscar and Golden Globe nominations as a mother dying of cancer.

He returned to television for a few years directing the series "Partners" (1995). In 2002 he returned to films with High Crimes (2002).

After a thesis film awarded by the prestigious American Film Institute, Carl Franklin began his career as a filmmaker under the wing of Roger Corman, in the Concorde Films of the legendary producer. He turned there a few B series such as Nowhere to Run, his first feature film in 1989. Two years later, the director signs the thriller a false movement with Bill Paxton and Billy Bob Thornton, according to a scenario co-written by this last. A very remarkable work, cited in particular among the ten best films of the year by the National Board of Review.

Also an actor in many TV movies, Carl Franklin continues in 1995 with the staging of the devil in a blue dress, tribute to the film Noir interpreted by Denzel Washington. In 1998, he took his audience on the other hand by directing Meryl Streep and Renée Zellweger in the counter-day psychological drama. He returns to the thriller with crimes and power (2002), a feature film in which Ashley Judd ignores who is really her husband (James Caviezel), and Out of Time (2003), where he finds Denzel Washington as a police officer suspected of a double homicide .

Carl Franklin is an American actor, director and producer born July 6, 1949 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He has played in many films and television series during his career, notably in "One False Move" (1992), "The Devil in the Blue Dress" (1995) and "High Crimes" (2002). Franklin is also known to have produced and produced several episodes of the television series "House of Cards" as well as the film "Out of Time" (2003) with Denzel Washington. Apart from his acting career, Franklin is also passionate about music and has played piano in several of his films. It is considered one of the greatest players of its generation and has won several prizes and appointments for its performance over the years.
