Australian actor and screenwriter who is best known for his first feature film, "Crocodile Dundee," and it's sequel, "Crocodile Dundee II," both of which he penned and both of which became huge hits after the first one opened in Australia on 4/22/1986. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
Before making the grade as a superstar with his success in "Crocodile Dundee," he had worked some 40 jobs. He was a top comic in Australia from his appearance on a talent show called "New Faces" in 1971. From there, he went on to do "The Paul Hogan Show" from 1977-82 in Australia, which was syndicated in some U.S. cities. He became widely known through Australian tourist ads by saying "G'day," and his plugging of the Aussie brew, Foster's Lager.
Soft-spoken and somewhat shy, his IQ has been tested at 180. Until his huge success, he had lived north of Sydney with his wife, Noeline, whom he married in his teens on 12/27/1958; they had five kids. After his "Crocodile" success, he divorced and married his co-star, Linda Kozlowski. In August 1998, he and Linda had a baby boy, Chance.
He suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on 6/04/1986 which required a period of rehab for recovery to occur.
In 2000, Hogan said G'Day to a third "Crocodile Dundee" film, 14 years after the huge success after the original. He had been visible in commercials for Subaru's sport utility station wagon over these last few years.
Hogan will produce and co-script the tentatively titled "Crocodile Dundee Returns," which will also star his wife, Linda Kozlowski. The new movie in the trilogy, which has a budget of $52 million, is scheduled to begin production in Queensland in August 2000. Shooting will also take place in Los Angeles.
