Stuhlbarg's theater résumé includes a Tony-nominated performance in "The Pillowman." He was also cast in Sam Mendes' Broadway revival of "Cabaret" and essayed the title role in "Richard II" with the New York Shakespeare Festival.
On the big screen, Stuhlbarg has played mostly supporting parts. But in 2009, he crossed into new territory with his first lead role (and his first Golden Globe nod), portraying a 1960s college professor in the black comedy A Serious Man.
In this gripping thriller that exposes the dog-eat-dog world of Capitol Hill lobbyists, political strategist Elizabeth Sloane is determined to push through legislation enacting tougher gun control, regardless of the personal or professional cost.
