My First Award: Stephen Lang & Hugo Weaving
Actor Stephen Lang to receive history award from NY group
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Actor Stephen Lang, whose dozens of film roles include the villain in James Cameron's "Avatar," will receive an award from a New York historic preservation group.
The 66-year-old New York native will receive the 2018 Empire State Archives and History Award from the New York State Archives Partnership Trust Thursday night at the State Education Building in downtown Albany.
During the event, Lang will discuss history with Abraham Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer.
