  • Upon graduating from Swarthmore College, Stephen Lang worked at the Folger Theatre in Washington, then made his off-Broadway debut in Shakespeare's Hamlet. Thereafter he virtually specialized in Shakespearean roles -- a direct contrast to his All-American demeanor and naval-ensign facial features. Lang was praised for his appearance as Happy in Dustin Hoffman's 1984 revival of Death of a Salesman, reprising the role for the subsequent TV-movie version. The next season, Lang costarred in the original Broadway production of A Few Good Men. From 1986 through 1988, the actor played prosecutor David Abrams on the weekly TV series Crime Story. Stephen Lang has appeared in such films as Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989) and Gettysburg (1993), and in 1991 won the title role in the made-for-TV Babe Ruth. He was cast as the one-armed man in the 2000 remake of The Fugitive TV show. In 2003 he portrayed the legendary historical figure General Stonewall Jackson in the civil war drama Gods and Generals. He continued to work steadily with a particularly busy year coming in 2009 where he could be seen in the box-office smash Avatar, the comedy The Men Who Stare At Goats, and the gangster film Public Enemies. In 2011 he starred as Khalar Zym in the remake of Conan the Barbarian.

QUOTES FROM Stephen Lang CHARACTERS

Jake Sully
It's over Quaritch!
Col. Miles Quaritch
Nothing's over while I'm breathing!
Jake Sully
I kinda hoped you'd say that.
Earl Kellogg
Well ain't you slicker than possum shit. You got a sharp mind and a fast mouth.
Travitt
Great. H.G. Wells, back from the future.
Col. Miles Quaritch
Everyone on this base, every one of you, is fighting for survival, and that's a fact. There's an aboriginal horde out there massing for an attack. These orbital images tell me that the hostile numbers have gone from a few hundred to well over two thousand in one day. And more are pourin' in. In a week's time, there could be 20,000 of 'em. At that point they will overrun our perimeter. That's not gonna happen. Our only security lies in preemptive attack. We will fight terror with terror. The hostiles believe that this mountain territory is protected by their... deity. And when we destroy it, we will blast a crater in their racial memory so deep, that they won't come within 1,000 klicks of this place ever again. And that too, is a fact.
Col. Miles Quaritch
You are not in Kansas anymore.
Col. Miles Quaritch
How does it feel to betray your own race?
Col. Miles Quaritch
Let's get this done.
Joe
Each guys life depends on all, on each man doing his job, you cover your zone, you know the man on you right has got your right covered, you know the man on your left will kill everything on your left! You're all part of each other, fingers on a hand, A FIRE TEAM!
Col. Miles Quaritch
You're not in Kansas, anymore. You're on Pandora, ladies and gentlemen. Respect that fact, people. Every second of every day. If there is a hell, you might want to there for some R&R after a tour on Pandora. Out there beyond that fence every living thing that crawls, flies, or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyes out for jujubes.
Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson
Tell me general, do you expect to live till the end of this war?
Brig. Gen. John Bell Hood
Oh... I do not know, but... I'm inclined to think I will. I expect I will be wounded. And you general?
Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson
I do not expect to live to see the end of this war. Nor can I say that without victory I would desire to do so.
Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson

Grace
Or what, 'Ranger Rick'? You gonna shoot me?
Grace
I can do that.
Col. Miles Quaritch
I can do that.
Col. Miles Quaritch
[after Jake has failed to get the Omaticaya to evacuate] Well, well, well. I'd say diplomacy has failed.
Col. Miles Quaritch
Nothing's over while I'm breathing!
Col. Miles Quaritch
As head of Security, it's my job to keep you alive. I will not succeed, not with all of you.
Col. Miles Quaritch

Patrick
Hey Brian, what's a Irish seven-course meal?
Brian
Six pack and a potato.
Patrick
What, that's not funny?
Brian
I heard it.
Patrick
Gets a laugh down at Clancy's every time.
Col. Miles Quaritch
A recon gyrene in an Avatar body... that's a potent mix! Gives me the goosebumps!
Col. Miles Quaritch
