About The Whole Wide World: Driven by the electrifying performances of Vincent D’Onofrio and Renée Zellweger, THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD is the touching true story of the star-crossed love between writer Robert Howard and schoolteacher Novalyne Price. The creator of Conan the Barbarian and Red Sonja, Howard was a small-town writer with an insatiable appetite for larger-than-life heroism and fantasy. Shunned by the prudish locals, he was befriended by a feisty young teacher who offered him an unforgettable chance at love.


About Vincent D’Onofrio: Though he established his career in the 1980s and 1990s with numerous film roles, actor Vincent D’Onofrio became a household name due to his nine-season run as the intelligent, but imposing Detective Robert Goren on the long-running drama, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” (NBC, 2001-2011 ). Prior to the acclaim and stardom he received from his television role, D’Onofrio made a quick jump from unknown actor to breakout star as a mentally unstable and put-upon Marine cadet in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket” (1987) and as a struggling Hollywood scribe who becomes a homicide victim by the hand of a studio executive in Robert Altman’s excellent satire, “The Player” (1992). D’Onofrio has firmly established himself as one of the finest character actors working in Hollywood.
