Hal Holbrook (Into the Wild) 

With five Emmys® and a Tony®, few actors' mantles boast as much hardware as Hal Holbrook's. Yet despite an illustrious 50-year career on stage, in television and on film, Hal's performance as Ron Franz, an old man who befriends a free-spirited adventurer in Sean Penn's 2007 film Into the Wild, is his first Academy Award® nomination.

Hal began his career in the 1950s with a one-man play called Mark Twain Tonight, a show he has performed as recently as 2006.

He's most famous for his performances in movies like All the President's Men and Wall Street and frequently is cast in television miniseries, made-for-television movies and guest-starring roles.
