How do I connect my MacBook Pro to my Sony Bravia 52" Liquid Crystal?

I think the question says it all. I can connect my Sony Vaio PC laptop so easily with one of them 15 pin monitor cables (I believe that's what they're called). However the MAC doesn't seem to have an plug for this type of monitor cable. Is it just a matter of getting the right cable? Or what do I need to do.

In that case you would need the first link posted for the mini display-port to DVI and pair that with a DVI cable or DVI to HDMI cable.

For audio you would need something like this:
