Michael Moore was born in Flint, Michigan, and attended Catholic schools, including a year in the seminary, which he says accounts for his healthy respect for the fires of hell which seem to be located somewhere just outside Crawford, Texas.He was an Eagle Scout, Newspaper Boy of the Week, and the youngest person ever elected to public office in the state of Michigan when he was 18-years old. Michael Moore is now the Oscar and Emmy-winning director of the groundbreaking and record-setting films "Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine, " and "Fahrenheit 9/11" (which also won the top prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival and has gone on to become the highest grossing documentary of all time.)No Disney film this year has made as much at the box office as "Fahrenheit 9/11." It became the first documentary ever to premier at number one in the box-office in its opening weekend. Film Comment has called it "The Film of the Year."Michael Moore is also America's #1 selling nonfiction author with such books as "Stupid White Men and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation, " and "Dude, Where's My Country."

"Stupid White Men" was also awarded Britain's top book honor, "British Book of the Year," the first time the award has been bestowed on an American author. Michael now has two new books being published by Simon & Schuster: "Will They Ever Trust Us Again -- Letters from the War Zone, " which is a compilation of letters he has received from soldiers in Iraq and from their families back home; and "The Official Fahrenheit 9/11 Reader, " which contains loads of backup materials for the film, plus essays, and the film's screenplay.In addition to winning the Academy Award for "Bowling for Columbine, " Michael Moore won the Emmy Award for his NBC and Fox series, "TV Nation" and was also nominated for his other series, "The Awful Truth" (which the "L.A.
