RENE RUSSO (Natasha Fatale) made her motion picture debut in 1989 as Tom Berenger's girlfriend in the comedy Major League. Since then she has earned accolades for her range and versatility in a variety of roles in which she has displayed a combination of sly humor, wry sassiness and a likable sensitivity.

She most recently received critical praise for her fiery and sexy portrayal of a tough insurance investigator romanced by a millionaire playboy and thief (Pierce Brosnan) in John McTiernan's remake of The Thomas Crown Affair.

Russo has also won acclaim as the feisty Internal Affairs detective, Lorna Cole the female counterpart to Mel Gibson's crazed cop, Martin Riggs, in Lethal Weapon 3. She reprised that role in the box office hit Lethal Weapon 4 and reunited with Gibson in Ron Howard's hit dramatic thriller, Ransom, playing the distraught mother of a kidnapped son.

Opposite Clint Eastwood, Russo starred as Lily Raines, the gutsy Secret Service cop assigned to protect the President of the United States while romancing her aging colleague (played by Eastwood) in In the Line of Fire. She also starred in another audience favorite, Outbreak, as a virologist who, with ex-husband Dustin Hoffman, tracks down a killer virus that threatens mankind. Displaying her flair for comedy, she starred opposite John Travolta, Gene Hackman and Danny DeVito as the screaming queen of Hollywood B-movies in Get Shorty, and as a flaky psychologist who falls for a down-and-out golf pro played by Kevin Costner, in Tin Cup. She then returned to a more dramatic role in Buddy, the true story of Gertrude Lintz, the New York socialite and eccentric who kept a menagerie of exotic animals in her Manhattan apartment.

Her earlier film roles include One Good Cop opposite Michael Keaton, Mr. Destiny and Freejack with Emilio Estevez.
