Scott Hicks, 1996), the Emmy Award for his performance as the protagonist in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (dir. Stephen Hopkins, 2004) and the Tony Award for his role as Monarch Berenger I in Eugen Ionescu's absurdist play Exit The King.
Geoffrey Rush will be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at TIFF.22.
