HOLLY HUNTER (Helen Parr/Elastigirl) implements her acting talents to give voice to this ultra-flexible character who is a mom, a housewife and a superhero rolled into one. Content to live the suburban lifestyle, Helen flies into action when her husband lands in trouble with a dangerous adversary.

Academy Award® winner, Holly Hunter is one of America's most intriguing and critically-acclaimed actresses. She has been nominated for four Oscars® and received both the Academy Award® and the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress for her performance in Jane Campion's "The Piano.” Last year, Hunter starred in Catherine Hardwicke's independent film "Thirteen,” for which she was nominated for an Oscar® and a BAFTA Award. Hunter was also seen in 2003's "Levity,” with Billy Bob Thornton and Morgan Freeman, which opened the Sundance Film Festival. Previous film credits include the Coen brothers' "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?,” Mike Figgis' "Time Code” and "The Firm” (for which she received an Academy Award® nomination). Her role in "Broadcast News” earned Hunter her first Academy Award® nomination for Best Actress. Among Hunter's other films are "Copycat,” "Raising Arizona” and "Living Out Loud.” On the small screen, she has been seen in "When Billie Beat Bobby” and "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her” (both won her Emmy® Award nominations), as well as "The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom” (Emmy® Award for Best Actress). She was also awarded an Emmy® for ‘Jane Roe' in "Roe vs. Wade.”

In 1982, Hunter made her Broadway stage debut in Beth Henley's "Crimes of the Heart” and followed that with another Broadway play by Henley, "The Wake of Jamey Foster.” Other New York stage appearances include "Battery, The Person I Once Was,” "A Weekend Near Madison,” "The Miss Firecracker Contest,” "Impossible Marriage” and "The Play What I Wrote” with Hamish McColl, Sean Foley and Tobey Jones. This winter, Hunter will make her West End debut in the London Stage production of "By the Bog of Cats.”

Hunter starred this summer in the dark romantic comedy "Little Black Book” with Brittany Murphy. She will also co-star in Mark Mylod's independent feature "The Big White” with Woody Harrelson and Robin Williams; and Rodrigo Garcia's "Nine Lives” with Stephen Dillane.
