JESSICA BIEL (Alex McDonough) has become one of Hollywood's most coveted actresses. Biel was most recently noted for her performance in the critically acclaimed film The Illusionist, alongside Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti. Entertainment Weekly reported that "Jessica Biel pulls off her most impressive trick yet: transforming herself into a turn-of-the-century Austrian duchess—and a serious art-house actress.”

Having emerged as a breakout star through her television series debut on the number-one-rated WB/CW show 7th Heaven, Biel has starred in many additional films. In addition to the sci-fi thriller Next, opposite Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore, her other recent roles include the return-from-war drama Home of the Brave, with Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci and 50 Cent; Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown, with Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst and Susan Sarandon; and Stealth, in which she starred alongside Josh Lucas and Jamie Foxx.

As a child, Biel initially pursued a career as a vocalist, performing in musical theater. Starting at the age of nine, she starred in such productions as Annie, The Sound of Music and Beauty and the Beast. A natural beauty, she soon turned to modeling and commercial work by competing in The International Modeling and Talent Association's Annual Conference in 1994.

In her feature film debut at age 14, Biel garnered raves for her portrayal as the rebellious daughter in Victor Nuñez's acclaimed film Ulee's Gold, starring Oscar® nominee Peter Fonda. She went on to appear in such films as Disney's I'll Be Home for Christmas, with Jonathan Taylor Thomas; Warner Bros.' romantic comedy Summer Catch, co-starring Freddie Prinze, Jr.; Lionsgate's The Rules of Attraction, for director Roger Avary; New Line's hit remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre; New Line's Cellular, co-starring Kim Basinger and Chris Evans; and New Line's Blade: Trinity, with Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson and Ryan Reynolds. In 2005, she was named "Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine.

In her free time, Biel is active with the Make the Difference Network, a nonprofit organization she started with her father. MTDN is a "national wish list” where people can search, find and fund specific wishes and needs that have been listed by nonprofit organizations. Through MTDN, Biel has become involved in such charities as Serving Those Who Serve, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and PETA. Her hobbies include ballet, soccer, running, yoga and hiking with her dogs, Tina and Tevy.
