Paul Hogan is an Australian comedian, actor, screenwriter, and TV presenter. He is best known for writing the screenplay and playing the lead role in the action comedy film ‘Crocodile Dundee’. He earned an Oscar nomination in the ‘Best Original Screenplay’ category for this movie and won the Golden Globe Award for his performance as an actor. Hogan was born in New South Wales, Australia, and worked as a rigger before entering the field of entertainment. He started his comedic career with his own sketch comedy program ‘The Paul Hogan Show’ and went on to gain international attention for his lead role in the action comedy film ‘Crocodile Dundee’ which was a critical and commercial success. He reprised his role in the sequels ‘Crocodile Dundee II’ and ‘Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles’. The sequels, however, couldn’t match the critical success of the first movie of the series. His acting in the film ‘Strange Bedfellows’, where he played the lead role, was also much appreciated. Besides acting, he was also an executive producer of the films ‘Almost an Angel’ and ‘Lightning Jack’. He was named the Australian of the Year in 1985, and the following year, he was appointed a ‘Member of the Order of Australia’ for his service to tourism and entertainment. Recently, he was given the ‘Longford Lyell Award,’ which is the highest honor of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts.
