FANTASTIC FOUR

JESSICA ALBA (Susan Storm / Invisible Woman) stars in the upcoming feature film, "Into the Blue,” also starring Paul Walker, Josh Brolin and Scott Caan. The underwater action-adventure is about scuba-divers who become involved in a dangerous situation after they discover sunken treasure. She recently starred in the feature film, "Sin City,” directed by Robert Rodriguez. Alba portrayed Nancy, an exotic dancer who is the heart of the fictional Sin City, playing opposite Bruce Willis in one of three of the film's intersecting stories.

Alba's first starring role in a major studio film was the 2003 release, "Honey,” which has grossed over $30 million domestically. She starred as Honey Daniels, a dancer and choreographer working as a bartender and record store clerk until she gets her big break in the music industry and comes to realize what really matters to her. The contemporary urban drama also featured Lil' Romeo, Mekhi Phifer and Joy Bryant, with appearances by hip hop/R&B stars Missy Elliott, Genuine, Sean Desmond, Tweet and Jadakiss.

Alba achieved worldwide recognition as the lead character in James Cameron's "Dark Angel,” Cameron's first project since the history-making "Titanic” and his debut television venture. In the series, Alba portrayed Max, a genetically-enhanced human prototype who escapes from her government captors only to live out her life in the underground of 21st Century Seattle. In the series' first season, she was nominated for a Golden Globe® and a People's Choice Award®. She was voted the TV Guide Award as Breakout Star of the Year by readers, and won Favorite TV Actress at the 2001 Teen Choice Awards. "Dark Angel” has replicated its success around the world, establishing her as an international star. It has been released on video and DVD and has spawned a soundtrack and a line of action figures.

Alba also has a deal with Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment to produce and star in a film derived from the limited-series comic book "Beautiful Killer,” from Black Bull Comics. The untitled film will extract key elements from the source material, about a girl who loses her family to mysterious killers, is forced to flee and ultimately chooses to exact revenge.

Alba fell in love with acting at a very early age, becoming active professionally at the age of 12. She began studying with acting coaches in Los Angeles and, shortly thereafter, landed at the Atlantic Theatre Company, where she studied with founders William H. Macy and David Mamet.

Alba's first feature film credits include Twentieth Century Fox's "Never Been Kissed,” starring and produced by Drew Barrymore, as well as the thriller, "Idle Hands” for Sony Pictures. She later appeared in Fine Line Features' "The Sleeping Dictionary,” a period drama which co-starred Brenda Blethyn, Bob Hoskins, Emily Mortimer, Noah Taylor and Hugh Dancy.

L' Oreal engaged her for a worldwide cosmetics contract in early 2001. She has also been featured in the iconic Got Milk? print campaign and will be featured in a new series of the popular Gap ads this Fall. She has appeared on numerous magazine covers in the United States and around the world.

Although many would describe her as an exotic beauty, Alba was raised in a traditional American family in California. Her mother's family has a French-Danish heritage, while her father is from Mexican-Indian and Spanish lineage.
