including her remarkable performance as singer/songwriter Denise
Waverly in Allison Anders' highly acclaimed musical drama, Grace
of My Heart, which she also helped produce. That performance
earned her a London Film Critics Award nomination.
Her other acclaimed roles include her breakthrough performance
in Gus Van Sant's satirical To Die For; her memorable and
gripping role in Martin Scorsese's Cape Fear; and the cult
classic, screw ball tragedy, Search & Destroy, directed
by famed artist David Salle (another project Douglas helped develop).
Working with directors such as Robert Redford, Kevin Smith, Nancy
Savoca, Frank Marshall, Irwin Winkler, John Milius, Glen Gordon
Caron, Melanie Mayron, and Lois Mandoki, Douglas's additional
film credits include Picture Perfect, Quiz Show, Good Fellas,
Alive, Wedding Bell Blues and Grief.
Most recently, Douglas starred opposite Stephen Rea in the independent
comedy Hacks, and opposite Kevin Costner in Warner Brothers'
Message in a Bottle. In addition to Stir of Echoes,
she will next be seen starring in the Miramax comedy Happy
Texas, opposite William H. Macy, Jeremy Northam, and Steve
Douglas is also currently developing two feature films to produce
and star in: The Lost Army and Life Without Dick.
Douglas has also written, produced and directed three short films:
The Perfect Woman, which won Best Short Film at the Aspen
Shorts Festival and was nominated for a Cable Ace Award, Boy
Crazy. Girl Crazier, and Everybody Just Stay Calm,
an hour-long comedic documentary about the trials and tribulations
of independent filmmaking. All three films play regularly on the
cable television channels Bravo and the Independent Film Channel.
Douglas is also a television veteran. She is next slated to star
this fall opposite Jay Mohr in the Fox comedy "Action",
which will air at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday nights. Previously, she
guest-starred as Garry Shandling's girlfriend on the final season
of "The Larry Sanders Show", and in the highly rated
CBS miniseries, "Bella" Mafia, with Vanessa Redgrave
and Nastassja Kinski. She also starred in Larry Gelbart's "Weapons
of Mass Destruction" for HBO, and the TNT epic, "Rough
Riders." Douglas is also fondly remembered as the odd character
Carrot Girl on "Seinfeld."
Douglas realized at a young age that she wanted to pursue a career
in the arts. Inspired by her grandparents, screen legend Melvyn
Douglas and Helen Gahagan Douglas (famous for her controversial
1950 Senate campaign against Richard M. Nixon), Douglas studied
acting at the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse in New York before
launching her professional career.
