DEJA VU

In 2006, PAULA PATTON emerged as an unforgettable talent with her leading role in the original musical "Idlewild.” Paula stars among an impressive cast including: Outkast's Andre Benjamin and Antwan Patton, Terrence Howard, Ving Rhames and Patti Labelle. The musical, set in the Prohibition-era American South is directed by Bryan Barber, produced by Charles Roven and will be released by Universal in 2006. Paula plays a songstress from St. Louis who travels to Idlewild and, with the help of Andre Benjamin's character as her piano man, develops a stage act as well as a love affair.

Paula was last seen in Columbia Pictures' romantic comedy "Hitch,” in which she costarred opposite Will Smith, Eva Mendes and Kevin James.

She grew up in Los Angeles, attending the Hamilton School for the Performing Arts. Paula always had a passion for acting as well as filmmaking; upon graduating from high school, she was chosen as one of four young filmmakers for a documentary series for PBS titled: "The Ride,” which followed the four filmmakers as they directed their own documentary films about young people across America. After spending her freshman year of college at UC Berkeley, with an increasing passion for filmmaking, Paula transferred to the prestigious USC Film School, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Upon graduation, she began doing various production-assistant work and eventually worked her way up to shooting and producing a show titled "Medical Diaries” for The Discovery Channel. When the show was completed, Paula realized her love of acting and immediately enrolled in acting classes, and after a year of studying, she decided to pursue a career in professional acting.
