Welcome! The aim of this website is to bring up to date information about the career of Billy Crudup. This site will focus on career only. “I’m trying to make a living by pretending to be different people, and if people know too much about me, that makes it really hard to do a job that I already find difficult. Then there’s nothing I can do to convince anybody that I’m you know, an ex-con from Queens” Source: U.S. (Feb 1999)

If you want dependable, quality work in your movie or TV show, no matter the subject or the setting or the genre, Billy Crudup offers one of the surest bets in the business. And he’s done so for years and years, in everything from “Almost Famous” to “Watchmen.” amNewYork spoke with the prolific actor, 48, about “20th Century Women,” his latest movie, in which he plays a handyman surrounded by strong California women (played by Annette Bening and others) in the epochal year of 1979.

20th Century Women, now playing in limited release, is named after its complicated women. There are three of them to be exact played by Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig and Elle Fanning. To the movie’s great credit, the two male characters are no less fascinating. Take note, men: while the men have their own distinct characters, half of the reason they’re so interesting is their empathy and curiousity about the women they share their lives with. One of the guys is a teenager just getting started in life (Lucas Jade Zumann) and eager to soak it all in. The film’s quietest character is William (Billy Crudup). He’s moving into middle age but headed nowhere in particular; the women have always come to him but he still doesn’t know where he’s going. Read More: // here

Billy Crudup seemed destined to be a big star. A breathtaking talent onstage, he can enunciate Tom Stoppard’s twisty words in “Arcadia” as if reciting a nursery rhyme. He starred as “The Elephant Man” when Bradley Cooper (Broadway’s most recent Elephant Man) was still appearing on the Hallmark Channel. Read More: // here

One of the absolute highlights of this year’s unusually robust Tribeca Film Festival was Noah Buschel’s “Glass Chin” (read our review here). It’s the tale of a down on his luck former boxer named Bud (played by Corey Stoll) who gets seduced by the criminal underworld. And there’s no one more seductive than Billy Crudup, who plays J.J., a kind of loan shark/restaurateur, in a performance that borders on being downright mesmerizing. Crudup is a wonderful actor but in “Glass Chin” he taps into something really powerful and odd. And we were lucky enough to chat with him about the process of creating the character, which he equates to the experience making Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen.” Oh, and he gets a shout out J.J. Abrams for a “Star Wars” job too. Continue @ indiewire.com
