SPEED RACER

The extremely versatile SUSAN SARANDON brings her own brand of sex appeal and intelligence to every role – from her fearless portrayal in "Bull Durham” to her Oscar-nominated performances in "Thelma and Louise,” "Lorenzo's Oil,” "The Client,” and "Atlantic City” to her Academy Award®-winning and SAG Award winning role in "Dead Man Walking” as Sister Helen, a nun consoling a death-row inmate.

In addition to her many on screen credits, she lent her vocal talents to the animated features "Rugrats in Paris,” "James and the Giant Peach,” and "Cats & Dogs” and served as narrator for Laleh Khadivi's documentary "900 Women,” about female prison inmates. 

The hard-working actress has made a career of choosing diverse and challenging projects both in film and television.
