SUSAN SARANDON (Celimene)
was most recently seen in HBO's "Earthly Possessions,"
based on the Anne Tyler novel and directed by James Lapine, opposite
Stephen Dorff. Last year, she starred opposite Julia Roberts and
Ed Harris in STEPMOM, directed by Chris Columbus, and opposite
Paul Newman and Gene Hackman in TWILIGHT, directed by Robert Benton.
She recently completed several feature film roles set for release
later this year, including Wayne Wang's ANYWHERE BUT HERE, based
on the novel by Mona Simpson, opposite Natalie Portman.
At a breakneck pace, Sarandon continues to defy every convention
bestowed upon actresses. By breaking in the mold and bringing
her own brand of sex appeal and intelligence to each and every
role-from her fearless portrayal in BULL DURHAM (1988) to her
Oscar- nominated performances in THELMA & LOUSIE (1991), LORENZO'S
OIL (1992) and THE CLIENT (1994), and her Academy Award-winning
and SAG Award-winning role as Sister Helen Prejean, a nun consoling
a death-row inmate in DEAD MAN WALKING- Sarandon has redefined
what it means to be a movie star.
Sarandon made her acting debut in the movie, JOE. The following
year she played a continuing role in the drama "A World Apart."
Her early film credits include THE GREAT WALDO PEPPER, LOVIN'
MOLLY, THE FRONT PAGE, and in 1975, the cult classic film THE
ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. In 1978, she played Brooke Shields'
mother in Louis Malle's controversial PRETTY BABY and then received
her first Oscar nomination for Best Actress in another Louis Malle
film, ATI.ANTIC CITY. Sarandon's other film credits include JOE,
KING Of THE GYPSIES, THE HUNGER, SWEET HEARTS DANCE, COMPROMISING
POSITIONS, THE JANUARY MAN, WHITE PALACE, THE BUDDY SYSTEM, A
DRY WHITE SEASON, THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK, BOB ROBERTS AND LIGHT
Prior to DEAD MAN WALKING, for which she also won the Screen Actor's
Guild Best Female Actor of 1995, Sarandon played "Marmee"
in LITTLE WOMEN, based on Louisa May Alcott's famous story of
maturing young women at the turn of the century, and starred opposite
Sam Shepard in New Line Cinema's SAFE PASSAGE.
On Broadway, Sarandon appeared in "An Evening with Richard
Nixon," and was critically lauded for her performances off-Broadway
in "A Coupla White Chicks Sittin' Around Talkin" and
Sarandon currently lives in New York.
