Richard Gere in the race to Oscar!

Richard Gere’s extraordinary talent and remarkable career deserves to be recognized. This year his outstanding performance in “Arbitrage” has been embraced by both the critics and the public at large. Gere plays the most self-serving Wall Street bastard since Gordon Gekko in Nicholas Jarecki’s “Arbitrage.”

Actor and humanitarian Richard Gere can currently be seen starring in Nicholas Jarecki’s “Arbitrage” opposite Susan Sarandon and Tim Roth. Gere is known for his diversity of roles, from his Golden Globe winning performance in “Chicago” to the critically acclaimed “Pretty Women,” “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “American Gigolo,” and “Primal Fear.” He was last seen in “Amelia” alongside Hilary Swank and Ewan McGregor and in Anton Fuqua’s “Brooklyn’s Finest,” starring Don Cheadle and Ethan Hawke. Other recent credits include “Nights in Rodanthe,” “I’m Not There,” “The Hoax,” “The Hunting Party,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Bee Season.”

Gere’s motion picture debut was the Oscar-honored “Days of Heaven,” for which he received the Italian equivalent of the Academy Award. In 1990, he received Box-office acclaim for his portrayal of a corrupt cop in “Internal Affairs.” His earlier film credits include; “Unfaithful,” “Mothman Prophecies,” “Looking Mr. Goodbar,” ‘Blood Brothers,” “Breathless,” “Beyond the Limit,” “The Cotton Club,” “Power,” “No Mercy, ” “Yanks,” “Looking” and “Miles From Home, “as well as the Box-office hit “Runaway Bride” and “Dr. T and the Women,” directed by Robert Altman.

Gere’s career was established with performances in the Broadway rock opera “Soon” and the New York production of the British farce, “Habeas Corpus.” For the Broadway production of “Bent,” he received the Theatre World Award.

Off screen Gere is an accomplished photographer, pianist and music writer. An outspoken human rights advocate, Gere is a student and friend of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

His first book, “Pilgrim,” is a collection of images that represent his twenty-five year journey into Buddhism.

On last year’s Hollywood Film Awards show special honors went to Richard Gere for career achievement; Bradley Cooper for actor; Marion Cotillard for actress; Robert De Niro for supporting actor; Amy Adams for supporting actress; Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman and the cast of “Argo;” John Hawkes for breakout performance; David O.
