In addition to his position as principal and co-founder of Castle Rock Entertainment, Rob Reiner is a well-known actor and one of Hollywood’s top directors.
Prior to his directorial career, Reiner acted in many television and feature films and wrote for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. It was, however, his Emmy Award winning portrayal of Michael Stivic, the son-in-law of Archie Bunker in the hit series All in the Family, that made him a household name.
Prior to the creation of Castle Rock, Reiner’s credits as a feature film director included the now-legendary This is Spinal Tap, The Sure Thing, Stand By Me, and the much loved fantasy The Princess Bride, adapted for the screen by Academy Award winner William Goldman from his original novel.
Castle Rock Entertainment’s first feature film release in 1989 was Reiner’s now-classic When Harry Met Sally…, a chronicle of romance in the ’80s which was both a critical and box office success, earning him Best Director nominations from both the Hollywood Foreign Press and the Directors Guild of America. He next directed Misery, a psychological thriller based on Stephen King’s bestseller of the same title, which earned Kathy Bates an Oscar in 1990. The mega box office hit A Few Good Men, starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore, followed in 1992, garnering another DGA Best Director nomination as well as four Academy Award nominations, including that for Best Picture. In 1994, North was released, starring Elijah Wood, Bruce Willis, Jon Lovitz, Jason Alexander and
