his keen portrayals of human interaction. Cain is best recalled

and the major box office hit, “Young Guns”, which launched

the success of Morgan Creek Productions.


During Cain’s prestigious career, he has cast many award-winning

actors including, Jon Voight, Joe Pesci, Morgan Freeman, Jack

Palance, Robert Duvall, Glen Close, Terence Stamp, Roddy

He is also known for his ability to recognize new and fresh talent

such as Jennifer Garner, Hillary Swank, Chris Penn, Kyle Chandler,

Vera Farmiga, and the cast of “Young Guns” (Emilio Estevez, Kiefer

Sutherland, Dermot Mulroney, Casey Siemasko, Lou Diamond

Philips, and Charlie Sheen).


Mr. Cain’s film, “Pure Country” soundtrack is still ranked number one

of US Billboard’s Top Country Album of all time and is the best selling

album of George Strait’s music career which spans 13 multi-platinum,

33 platinum, and 38 gold albums.


The recipient of the Spirit of Gary Cooper Award, Western Heritage

Award, two Dove Awards, three Golden Reel Awards, CMA Award

Nominee, Prism Award Nominee, and the Grand Prix Special des

Ameriques Nominee at the Montreal World Film Festival, Christopher

Cain is also renown for his credits and accomplishments in television.

Cain’s Hallmark Hall of Fame telepic, “Rose Hill,” not only launched

the career of Jennifer Garner, but lifted CBS to the top of the primetime

ratings chart with 22.5 million viewers.


His television series “The Magnificent Seven,” made a strong

showing - ranking 14th of all networks, and his first season episode,

“Working Girls” received the Prime-Time Emmy Award, and his

second season episode, “China Town” was nominated for a

second Prime-Time Emmy Award.


A two-time Gold Remi Award winning director, Cain has directed

23 movies, most notably YOUNG GUNS, a Golden Reel Award

winner and People's Choice Awards nominee. He also pioneered
