The Honig Company Signs Actor Christopher Murray for Public Relations Representation

Well-Known Character Actor to Appear in Upcoming Harrison Ford/Sean Penn Movie

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - The Honig Company, Inc., a leading independently owned public relations agency, announced today it has signed Christopher Murray as a client and will handle publicity for the accomplished character actor.

Christopher Murray is one of today's most recognizable character actors, having appeared in a wide range of film, television and stage roles alongside some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.

The son of two-time Emmy Award winning film and television actress Hope Lange ("Peyton Place," "The Ghost & Mrs. Muir," "Pocketful of Miracles") and Academy Award® nominated leading man Don Murray ("Bus Stop," "Advise & Consent"), Murray was raised in a show business family.

"Chris is one of today's finest character actors, with extremely impressive credits in both film and television," said Steve Honig, president of The Honig Company, Inc. "While Chris has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the business, he has always managed to give memorable performances and shown great versatility as an actor."

Murray's past film credits include "Smokin' Aces" with Ben Affleck and Jeremy Piven, "The Man" with Eugene Levy and Samuel L. Jackson, "Just Cause" with Sean Connery and Laurence Fishburne, "The Pelican Brief" with Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington, "Virtuosity" also with Washington and Russell Crowe and "Dante's Peak" with Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton. His first film role was in the Academy Award® winning picture "All The President's Men" with Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman. His work in television includes series such as "Zoey 101," "The West Wing," "Crossing Jordan," "7th Heaven," "JAG," "Carnivàle" and "Beverly Hills 90210" as well as made-for-television movies including "Sacrifices of the Heart," "A Place Called Home" and "Route 9."
