CATHERINE KEENER (Agent Dot Woods), an actress with an innate ability to be both a potent force and a grounded presence in her films, is due to be seen in an eclectic group of projects in 2005. In addition to The Interpreter, she will be seen in Rebecca Miller's The Ballad of Jack and Rose, starring Daniel Day-Lewis; Capote, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, in the story of Truman Capote's experiences during his research for the book, In Cold Blood; Nicole Holofcener's Friends with Money, opposite Jennifer Aniston, Frances McDormand and Joan Cusack in a film about four best friends and their relationships with one another and their husbands; and Judd Apatow's directorial debut, The 40 Year Old Virgin, a middle-age coming-of-age comedy in which Keener stars opposite Steve Carell (who co-wrote the script with Apatow).

For her performance as the eldest daughter of the Marks family, a former homecoming queen stuck in a loveless marriage in Holofcener's Lovely & Amazing, Keener received a nomination for a 2003 Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress.

In 2000, Keener received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Maxine, the manipulative co-worker who seduces the puppeteer, his wife and the title character in Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich. Her film credits also include Jonze's Adaptation; Andrew Niccol's S1m0ne; Steven Soderbergh's Full Frontal and Out of Sight; Danny DeVito's Death to Smoochy; Neil LaBute's Your Friends & Neighbors; Holofcener's Walking and Talking; and the screen adaptation of Sam Shepard's Simpatico. She also appeared in four films by Tom DiCillo: Box of Moonlight, Johnny Suede, Living in Oblivion and The Real Blonde.

For television, Keener co-starred in HBO's critically acclaimed anthology If These Walls Could Talk, directed by Nancy Savoca, and made a notable guest appearance on Seinfeld. Onstage, she starred opposite Edward Norton in the Signature Theater Company's critically acclaimed off-Broadway revival of Langford Wilson's Burn This (2003).
