RUNAWAY JURY

RACHEL WEISZ (Marlee) starred in "About a Boy," opposite Hugh Grant, and in "Confidence," opposite Edward Burns and Dustin Hoffman, for director James Foley.

Previously, she reprised her role opposite Brendan Fraser in "The Mummy Returns," which broke box-office records upon its release. She also starred opposite Jude Law and Joseph Fiennes in "Enemy at the Gates," directed by Jean-Jacques Arnaud, and in the independent film "Beautiful Creatures," opposite Susan Lynch.

Other films in which Weisz has starred include the acclaimed British comedy "Land Girls," which also starred Catherine McCormack, and "Swept From the Sea," which also starred Vincent Perez. She was also seen in Mark Pellington's "Going All the Way," with Jeremy Davies and Ben Affleck, Bernardo Bertolucci's "Stealing Beauty," opposite Liv Tyler and Jeremy Irons, and the thriller, "Chain Reaction," opposite Keanu Reeves and Morgan Freeman.

These films quickly followed her acclaimed debut in the London production of Noel Coward's "Design For Living," which garnered her the London Drama Critics Circle Award as Outstanding Newcomer. She also starred in the West End production of "Suddenly Last Summer" for director Sean Mathias.

Before her London theatre success Weisz already had a significant theatrical background that began during her time studying at Cambridge University. With two colleagues she formed the "Talking Tongues" Theater Group, which performed numerous experimental pieces and which won the prestigious Guardian Award at the Edinburgh Festival.

Weisz returned to the stage in Neil Labute's latest play, "The Shape of Things," at the Almeida Theatre in the West End of London, for which she received excellent reviews. The play then had a successful run off Broadway. Weisz co-produced with Neil LaBute and starred in the subsequent film version.
