Acting has been Schreiber's key source of income ever since he gained widespread recognition as Cotton Weary in the "Scream" trilogy, which opened doors to big-budget studio productions for him. He was also celebrated for his contributions to independent films like "Walking and Talking," "The Daytrippers," and "Big Night."

His portrayal of Orson Welles in the HBO movie "RKO 281," earned him several nominations. Schreiber also played supporting roles in studio films like Ron Howard's "Ransom," "The Hurricane," and "The Sum of All Fears." The 2004 remake of "The Manchurian Candidate" and the 2006 film "The Omen" were particularly significant for Schreiber, as was his role in the 2001 film "Kate & Leopold."

Known for Shakespearean plays, Schreiber's performance in "Hamlet" in a 1999 revival at The Public Theater received praise, and his role in "Henry V" in a 2003 Central Park production earned critical acclaim. He has also lent his voice to numerous documentaries, PBS series, and commercials. His narration for HBO's "Hard Knocks" and documentaries like "Magic & Bird: A Courtship of Rivals" and "Broad Street Bullies" has been widely recognized.


In 2005, Schreiber explored direction and writing with his film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's short story, "Everything Is Illuminated." He won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play for his role in the Broadway revival of "Glengarry Glen Ross" in 2005. On the small screen, his role in the Showtime drama series "Ray Donovan" earned him five Golden Globe Award nominations and three Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

He then starred in critically acclaimed films like "Spotlight," which won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. His return to Broadway in "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" and his role in the film "Human Capital" was a huge success. He contributed to animated films, such as "Isle of Dogs" and "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse."
