The Project Fibonacci Lifestream Speaker Series: A Salute to Veterans – Come see a live performance of the emotional true story “Beyond Glory” by renowned actor Stephen Lang.

STEPHEN LANG IS AN ACTOR RENOWNED FOR HIS PERFORMANCES ON STAGE, SCREEN AND TELEVISION…

On film, Lang is perhaps best known for his role as ‘Colonel Miles Quaritch’ in James Cameron’s seminal 2009 film Avatar.  Lang is reprising that role in Cameron’s several sequels, which began filming in 2017. In 2016, he starred to critical acclaim as ‘The Blind Man’ in writer-director Fede Alvarez’s hit thriller Don’t Breathe. He stars in director Joe Begos’ action-horror film VFW, to be released by RLJE Films next year.

Recent film roles include Braven, opposite Jason Momoa, and director Scott Cooper’s Hostiles, opposite Christian Bale. Lang’s extensive film credits include Band of Robbers, Last Exit to Brooklyn, Tombstone, Gettysburg, Gods and Generals, Public Enemies, White Irish Drinkers, Christina, A Good Marriage, Manhunter, Band of the Hand andConan the Barbarian.

Stephen Lang is also an award-winning playwright. He received the “Special Jury Prize for Acting” at the 2016 Phoenix Film Festival for his performance documentary Beyond Glory, which tracks the ten year odyssey behind his acclaimed solo performance piece about eight Medal of Honor recipients. The documentary was executive produced and presented by Lightstorm Entertainment principals, James Cameron and Jon Landau, and was acquired for distribution by Gravitas Ventures. Beyond Glory, the play itself, has received the NEA Chairman’s Medal for Distinguished Service, and the Bob Hope Award from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, which honors Lang’s accurate portrayal of the American fighting man.

On television Lang portrayed fan-favorite ‘Waldo’ in the first two seasons of AMC’s genre-bending martial arts series, Into the Badlands. His television credits include regular roles on Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova, and Michael Mann’s classic Crime Story, as well as celebrated portrayals of Babe Ruth in NBC’s biopic, Babe Ruth, and ‘Happy’ in Death of a Salesman, with Dustin Hoffman.

His extensive work on the New York stage includes A Few Good Men, The Speed of Darkness, Defiance, Death of a Salesman, The Guys, Hamlet, and 101 performances at The Roundabout Theater of his solo play, Beyond Glory, which he has also toured and continues to tour around the country. Theatre awards and nominations include The Tony, Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel, Joseph Jefferson, Helen Hayes, and Outer Critics Circle Awards.
