Mark Burg is an American film producer[1] and actor, perhaps best known for his work on the Saw film series and on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men.


Mark was President of Island Pictures in the early 1990s and produced many films such as Basketball Diaries (1995), The Sandlot, The Cure, and gave Halle Berry her first leading role, in Strictly Business (1991). In the late 1990s, with his producing partner Oren Koules, he created Evolution Entertainment, which produces film and television and manages writers, directors, and actors. In 2004, with Oren and the late Gregg Hoffman, he created the production company Twisted Pictures that mainly focuses on developing and producing horror films. Mark and Oren took a gamble on personally financing the first production of the Saw films which luckily for them, paid off. Both received the ShoWest Awards in 2007.[2]
