LETHAL WEAPON 4
RENE RUSSO (Lorna Cole), who has made a rapid ascent in
less than a decade to become one of the top actresses in film,
reprises her role from "Lethal Weapon 3" as the tough-talking
(and hitting) Internal Affairs cop who clashes and then finally
connects with Martin Riggs.
Russo will next be seen in the "The Thomas Crown Affair"
starring opposite Pierce Brosnan. The film, which is set to start
production in September, is a remake of the 1968 heist drama that
starred Steve McQueen as a wealthy thief and Faye Dunaway as the
investigator who pursues him. "The Thomas Crown Affair"
was written by Kurt Wimmer and Leslie Dixon and will be directed
by John McTiernan.
In 1996 she re-teamed with <Picture: Rene Russo>Mel Gibson
as they played husband and wife in Ron Howard's thriller "Ransom,"
and a psychologist opposite Kevin Costner in the comedy "Tin
Cup." In 1997 she starred as socialite Trudy Lintz in "Buddy."
Russo was seen as the B-movie queen in the critically acclaimed
hit comedy "Get Shorty" opposite John Travolta and Gene
Hackman, and played a medical researcher alongside Dustin Hoffman
and Morgan Freeman in "Outbreak."
A native of California, Russo grew up in Burbank and, at 18, was
discovered at a Rolling Stones concert and encouraged to become
a fashion model. Soon afterward, she moved to New York and became
a top model for the Ford Agency. She graced the covers of virtually
every fashion magazine throughout her successful modeling career
in the late 1970s and 1980s.
Her screen career made a similarly rapid ascent as she turned
to acting in the comedy "Major League" (1989) and followed
with roles in "Mr. Destiny," "Freejack" and
"One Good Cop." Her role in "Lethal Weapon 3"
showed her facility with both action and comedy and, after that
film's release, Wolfgang Peterson cast her as a Secret Service
agent opposite Clint Eastwood in "In The Line of Fire."
