With four films set for release, DIANE LANE (Mary Rice) continues to flourish as an award-winning actress who has seen success both in comedy and drama, on film as well as in television. Lane plays an FBI agent Jennifer Marsh hunting down a tech-savvy serial killer in Gregory Hoblit's Untraceable, starring Joseph Cross and due in theaters, January 2008.

In Killshot, Lane stars in an adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel. Directed by John Madden and executive produced by Quentin Tarantino, this cat and mouse action thriller follows a couple who has landed in the Federal Witness Protection program after a failed extortion scheme.

After garnering SAG, Golden Globe, and Oscar nominations, and being hailed as “Best Actress” by the New York Film Critics and National Society of Film Critics for her turn as an adulterous wife in the 2002 critically-acclaimed Adrian Lyne film Unfaithful, Lane has since top-lined a diverse slate of both independent and major studio releases.

Lane's impressive filmography includes the acclaimed Francis Ford Coppola films, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish and The Cotton Club. Additional credits include: Allen Coulter's period piece, Hollywoodland, with Ben Affleck and Adrien Brody; the comedy Must Love Dogs, with John Cusack; the drama A Walk on the Moon, which landed Lane an Independent Spirit Award nomination; the Audrey Wells romantic comedy Under the Tuscan Sun, which resulted in a Golden Globe nomination; Wolfgang Peterson's action film The Perfect Storm, with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg; the highly successful adaptation of Willie Morris' childhood memoir, My Dog Skip; the critically acclaimed independent feature My New Gun; Hardball opposite Keanu Reeves; her portrayal of actress Paulette Goddard in Chaplin, for director Sir Richard Attenborough; Peter Masterson's independent drama The Only Thrill opposite Diane Keaton, Sam Shepard and Robert Patrick; the political thriller, Murder at 1600 opposite Wesley Snipes; Coppola's Jack opposite Robin Williams, and Walter Hill's epic Western, Wild Bill, with Jeff Bridges.

On television, Lane was last seen starring opposite Bill Pullman in TNT's "The Virginian." Lane's previous television credits include "A Streetcar Named Desire" opposite Alec Baldwin and Jessica Lange, as well as her Emmy®-nominated role "Lorena" in the CBS series "Lonesome Dove," opposite Robert Duvall. She also starred opposite Gena Rowlands in the Hallmark Hall of Fame drama, "Grace & Glorie" for CBS. In 1994, Lane starred opposite Donald Sutherland, Cicely Tyson and Anne Bancroft in the critically acclaimed CBS epic miniseries, "The Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All." Based on the best-selling novel by Allan Gurganus, Lane portrayed a character from her early teens into her sixties.

The daughter of drama coach Burt Lane and singer Colleen Farrington, at the age of six, Lane answered a call for child actors at La Mama Experimental Theater. She won a role in Andrei Serbian's unique version of "Medea" and subsequently appeared over the next five years in his productions of "Electra," "The Trojan Women," "The Good Woman of Szechuan," and "As You Like It," both in New York and at theater festivals around the world. After performing in Joseph Papp's productions of "The Cherry Orchard," and "Agamemnon" at Lincoln Center in 1976-77, Lane starred at The Public Theater in "Runaways,” and made her film debut opposite Sir Laurence Olivier, in George Roy Hill's "A Little Romance” in 1978.

Lane graced the cover of TIME magazine in 1979 as "A Hollywood Whiz Kid."
