Alex Hyde-White, known as Punch to friends, is making his film directing debut with the indie fantasy doc Three Days from TMG, the Santa Monica based production company, producers of 2002′s Pursuit of Happiness.
His current film and TV credits include roles in NCIS, Tintin:Legend of the Unicorn (Dreamworks) and Game Change (HBO), in which he cameos as South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. In addition to roles in Catch Me If You Can and Gods and General, fans of Disney’s blockbuster Pretty Woman will remember him as David Morse, the flirty polo-playing industrialist grandson.
The son of the great British character actor Wilfrid Hyde-White, Alex started his career in television at Universal in such shows
as Quincy, Battlestar:Galactica and Buck Rogers. U.K. born Alex returned to England in the mid-1980′s and starred in Biggles: Adventures in Time, Phantom of the Opera (with Robert Englund and Bill Nighy), and co-starred in Ishtar andThe First Olympics.
He has appeared on Broadway, in L.A. on stage at the Underground and The Geffen Theatre, co-starred in a European Apple Iphone
commercial after 2010′s World Cup in which he played the soccer coach, and is always on the lookout for interesting stories to tell, as an actor, producer and director.
Alex Hyde-White occupies a unique place in pop culture folklore as he was the original Reed Richards in the first version of Marvel Comics The Fantastic Four (1994). The film was never released but lives on for comic book aficionados as a most faithful representation of the quirky “civilians” who undergo extreme physical as well as psychological changes after their encounter with Collosus and their old friend turned nemesis, Victor Von (Dr.) Doom.
