Paul Hogan became a worldwide success with his irresistible comic performance in Crocodile Dundee (1986), which he created and co-wrote. It earned him a Golden Globe for Best Actor as well as an Oscar, (nomination for Best Screenplay). The versatile actor got his start in Australian television in a recurring role as comic relief on "A Current Affair" (1971). An expanded version entitled "The Paul Hogan Show" (1973) premiered on Australia's Nine Network and quickly propelled him to the top of the ratings chart. His dramatic role in the critically acclaimed television series "Anzacs" (1985) (mini) and his work in promoting Australia worldwide invested him into the Order of Australia and led to his appointment as "Australian of the Year".

Hogan was the executive producer/writer/star of the feature films "Almost an Angel" and "Lightning Jack" and starred in "Flipper" and "Floating Away." American audiences also remember Hogan from his now legendary commercials for the Australian Tourist Commission in which he invited us to say "g'day" and come "down under" so he could "slip another shrimp on the barbie."
