The star of TV's 'Dexter' and 'Fargo' will be honored for film work in such classics as Ridley Scott's 'The Duelists' and Louis Malle's 'Pretty Baby.'

The Oldenburg Film Festival will honor character actor Keith Carradine with a career retrospective at its 2018 event.

Carradine, 68, has carved out an impressive career in television and film, most recently with recurring roles in series including Fargo, Dexter, The Big Bang Theory and Madame Secretary.

But true to Oldenburg's indie film roots, the festival will be mainly celebrating Carradine's film career, particularly the 1970s, when he appeared in such classics as Robert Altman's Nashville (1975), Alan Rudolph's Welcome to L.A. (1976), Pretty Baby (1978) from Louis Malle and Ridley Scott's debut, The Duelists. Oldenburg will screen Nashville, The Duelists and Alan Rudolph's comedy crime feature Trouble in Mind (1985) in Carradine's honor.

Carradine was born into an acting family —his father, John Carradine, was a frequent collaborator of director John Ford; and his older half brother, and mentor, David Carradine is an acting legend whose career spanned decades, from 70s TV series Kung Fu to Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill films.

Keith Carradine will attend the 2018 Oldenburg Film Festival from Sept. 12-16, where he will present the European premiere of Ray Meets Helen, his sixth collaboration with Rudolph. Carradine stars with Sondra Locke as a pair who both, separately, stumble upon large sums of money, giving them the chance to reinvent their lives.
