In 2006, Paul Haggis became the first screenwriter to win back-to-back Academy Awards, the first for the Clint Eastwood directed "Million Dollar Baby" and the second for "Crash" which he directed himself. Born in London, Ontario, Haggis moved to Hollywood in his early 20's and began his career as a writer, first in television on such shows as the "The Love Boat", "Walker: Texas Ranger" and "Due South " and then moved to film where his first two films, "Crash" and "Million Dollar Baby" won him Oscars. Haggis continues to work with Clint Eastwood, collaborating on "Flags of our Fathers" and "Letters to Iwo Jima" and has had critical success for "In the Valley of Elah" and on two James Bond films "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace". In 2009, Haggis established "Artists for Peace and Justice", an organization dedicated to help build schools and bring medical care to Haiti. Following the earthquake in January 2010, Haggis embarked on a fund-raising effort that included producing a remake of "We Are The World". Haitian film students, under Haggis' supervision were involved in the production of the video. Ken Rockburn spoke to Paul Haggis in New York where he was working on his next film "The Next Three Days" starring Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks.
