MATCH POINT

SCARLETT JOHANSSON (Nola Rice) has segued from being an award-winning child actress to one of the most sought-after leading ladies in the industry. A three-time Golden Globe nominee, she gained her latest nomination in 2005 for her work opposite John Travolta in the independent drama "A Love Song for Bobby Long.” In 2004, she earned dual Golden Globe nominations: one for the title role in "Girl With a Pearl Earring,” and a second for her performance in Sophia Coppola's sophomore film, "Lost in Translation,” in which Johansson starred with Bill Murray. In addition, she was recognized with BAFTA Award nominations for both films, winning the Best Actress Award for "Lost in Translation.” Johansson's work in "Lost in Translation” also brought her honors from several critics groups, and she won the Best Actress Award at the Venice Film Festival.

Johansson next stars in Brian De Palma's crime drama "The Black Dahlia,” opposite Josh Hartnett, and she also reunited with Woody Allen to star in his new film "Scoop,” due out in Fall 2006. 

A native New Yorker, Johansson made her professional acting debut at the age of eight in the off-Broadway production of "Sophistry,” with Ethan Hawke, at New York's Playwrights Horizons. She made her feature film debut in Rob Reiner's comedy "North,” and was also seen in such films as the thriller "Just Cause,” with Sean Connery and Laurence Fishburne; the comedy "If Lucy Fell”; and the critically praised "Manny & Lo,” for which she earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead.

However, it was in Robert Redford's 1998 drama "The Horse Whisperer” that Johansson delivered a breakthrough performance as Grace MacLean, the teenage girl traumatized by a terrible riding accident. Two years later, she again garnered acclaim for her work in Terry Zwigoff's "Ghost World,” winning a Best Supporting Actress Award from the Toronto Film Critics Circle. Johansson also co-starred with Billy Bob Thornton and Frances McDormand in the Coen brothers' dark drama "The Man Who Wasn't There.” Her additional film credits include Michael Bay's "The Island,” opposite Ewan McGregor; the Weitz brothers' hit comedy-drama "In Good Company,” with Dennis Quaid and Topher Grace; Brian Robbins' "The Perfect Score”; and Éva Gárdos' "An American Rhapsody,” with Nastassja Kinski.
