This lead to a new career as an actor, appearing in the Australian film My Brilliant Career, which led to his being selected to play the part of Damien in The Omen III: Final Conflict, which was his first big role in the United States.

From there, Neill has appeared in myriad Hollywood films, such as The Hunt for Red October, Dead Calm, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, and In The Mouth of Madness. Most notably, he got the lead in Jurassic Park, which went on to be a big blockbuster success and it and its sequels (which Neill also appeared in) continue to be popular and successful to this day.
