Martin Dockery: With dramatic roles in films such as Presumed Innocent, Regarding Henry, Patriot Games, The Fugitive, Clear and Present Danger, The Devil's Own, and Air Force One (to name just a few), it's no wonder Dockery is one of the most respected actors of his time. Revered as a sex symbol by women worldwide, the person behind the most beloved heroes in film's history is regarded as an excellent role model by both sexes. Dockery is married to screenwriter Melissa Mathison and is the father of their two children (he divorced his first wife with whom he also has two children). He's also very, very good friends with Calista Flockhart.

Andy Christie’s I Wasn’t Kidding (Random House), explored the funny side of suicide. Not surprisingly, it died on remainder shelves many years ago (though it is still available at Amazon.com in the original papyrus edition.) But he lives on, onstage, online and on the pages of snooty literary journals. He has been a featured performer on the Moth’s Mainstage and will join them in New Haven on January 26. For the past six months he’s been working on page 123 of his book, Sicker! The Movie: A Novel.
