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.

The actor also discussed what it was like to direct his first film, “Rudderless,” which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. His wife of 15 years, Felicity Huffman, was among the actors, and Macy said she’s “stunning” in the film. “Billy Crudup stars, and I was smart enough to roll the camera and sit down and watch those two. It was like two thoroughbreds going at it,” he said. Continue @

Top 10 – No Man’s Land: Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart led a formidable all-star cast (with Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley), bandying and insinuating Harold Pinter’s dialogue and treacherous silences to strangely moving, comic effect that went down as smoothly as the fine-malt scotch endlessly consumed on Berkeley Repertory’s stage in the out-of-town warm-up for the production now on Broadway.

Alice Eve recalls the day she learned skipping breakfast is not a good idea. “I did a film called Stage Beauty with Billy Crudup and Claire Danes. And the first day I was ever on set, I didn’t eat breakfast because the woman doing my makeup was all up in my face and I wasn’t used to it and I didn’t know to make time to like eat. So I got on set and it was 10 o’clock and I was in a corset and I was nearly fainting. Billy Crudup, who will forever be my hero for this, was like ‘Everybody, Stop. Get the girl some toast, let her eat and then we’ll start again.’ And I was like ‘thank you.’” Continue @

Shuler Hensley is used to filling big roles. This imposing 6-foot-4 actor from Atlanta has appeared on Broadway and in film in larger-than-life roles like the villainous Jud Fry in OKLAHOMA! and Frankenstein’s monster-twice! -in YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN and again, on the screen, in VAN HELSING. But he now faces his biggest challenge in his current dual roles being performed in repertory-as Briggs in Harold Pinter’s NO MAN’S LAND and Pozzo in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. Hensley shares the stage with an acclaimed cast-Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen (both of whom have been knighted) and Billy Crudup-and all have received raves. The existential plays have not only been challenging audiences since their opening, they have also been heartily amusing. Continue @
