THE RUNDOWN

With numerous films already to her credit, including the upcoming female leading roles opposite two of today's hottest film actors, ROSARIO DAWSON (Mariana) is emerging as one of Hollywood's hottest leading ladies.

Immediately following her starring role in The Rundown, Dawson will appear in the drama Shattered Glass with Hayden Christensen, Chloƫ Sevigny and Steve Zahn. Dawson can also be seen in This Girl's Life, which has been making its run in the festivals this year. She also recently signed on to star in writer/director Oliver Stone's upcoming epic Alexander, playing opposite Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie.

Dawson was last seen on the big screen starring in the critically acclaimed Spike Lee film, The 25th Hour, opposite Edward Norton, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Barry Pepper. She recently starred opposite Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the hit sequel Men in Black II and in The Adventures of Pluto Nash, a futuristic action/comedy, starring opposite Eddie Murphy. She also recently starred in Chelsea Walls for director Ethan Hawke, which was based on the play of the same name.

Dawson made her film debut in the highly acclaimed and controversial hit Kids. Directed by photographer Larry Clark, with a script by Harmony Korine, Kids depicts 24 hours in the life of a group of New York street kids and the havoc that runs through their lives. With a surprise midnight screening at Sundance and a spot in the main competition at the Cannes Film Festival, Dawson's film career was well underway.

Dawson's credits include Sidewalks of New York, a romantic comedy, written, directed by and starring Ed Burns, as well as Heather Graham, Stanley Tucci and Brittany Murphy. She also appears in the The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest, written by Jon Favreau and directed by Mick Jackson. The film, starring Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly), centers around four misfit Silicone Valley inventors who design the computer of the future only to have the idea stolen by another inventor. Dawson plays Alissa, an art major and Adam Garcia's love interest. She will also appear in Ed Burn's next film Ash Wednesday, along with Ed Burns and Elijah Wood.

She can also be seen in the independent film Love in the Time of Money, written and directed by theater director Peter Marrei, which premiered to high acclaim at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. The dark comedy chronicles the lives of nine New Yorkers connected through searches for love and sex in the city. The film also stars Steve Buscemi, Carol Kane, Michael Imperioli and Adrian Grenier.

Dawson recently produced a 15-minute short entitled Bliss Virus, written and directed by Talia Lugacy. Additionally, Dawson hopes to produce Lugacy's first feature sometime in the near future.
