      Grant Heslov

      Grant Heslov

      Highest Rated: 100% Fail Safe (2000)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Congo (1995)

      Birthday: May 15, 1963

      Birthplace: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

      Starting his career as guest star on numerous prominent television series, Grant Heslov made a smooth transition to producing and directing alongside his old friend, George Clooney, both of whom delivered some of Hollywood's most challenging and thought-provoking projects. Having met Clooney while doing an episode of "The Facts of Life"(NBC, 1979-1988), Heslov remained close friends with the rising star, as he, himself, continued taking small parts in film and on television like "L.A. Law" (NBC, 1986-1994), "True Lies" (1994) and "Dante's Peak" (1997). After making his directorial bow with the little-seen comedy, "Par 6" (2002), Heslov joined forces with Clooney and director Steven Soderbergh to become president of the television arm of their production company, Section Eight. While there, he oversaw two critically-acclaimed, but ultimately short-lived series, "K Street" (HBO, 2003) and "Unscripted" (HBO, 2004), while serving as one of the producers on the multi-Oscar-nominated drama, "Good Night, and Good Luck" (2004). But when Section Eight closed its doors, Heslov and Clooney partnered on their new production company, Smoke House, which provided him the opportunity to direct his first major feature, "The Men Who Stare at Goats" (2009), and co-writing the Oscar-nominated drama "The Ides of March" (2011), while maintaining both a strong friendship and creative partnership with Clooney.
