ROSARIO DAWSON (Zoe) Rosario Dawson has garnered praise for her numerous leading roles with today's hottest film actors and directors, making her one of Hollywood's most sought after leading ladies.

Dawson recently wrapped filming the Sony Pictures drama "Seven Pounds” starring opposite Will Smith. Gabriele Muccino of "The Pursuit of Happyness” directed the film, which follows a guilt-ridden man who falls in love while attempting to end his life. Dawson also stars in the Weinstein Company's, John Madden-directed "Killshot” alongside Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane and Johnny Knoxville, which is based on the best-selling crime novel about a couple who enters a witness protection program, but still find themselves targets of two hit men.

In 2008, Dawson also starred in the political drama "Explicit Ills,” which premiered at SXSW Film Festival. The film received praise from critics, as well as three awards including the "Audience Award” at the festival.

Prior to that, she appeared in "Deathproof,” Quentin Tarantino's half of the horror project "Grindhouse,” a joint venture consisting of two feature films, one directed by Tarantino and the other by Robert Rodriguez. "Deathproof” was chosen as an in-competition film for the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and has continued its success overseas.

Dawson starred in and produced the film "Descent” for director Talia Lugacy. Premiering in 2007 at the Tribeca Film Festival to rave reviews, it was Dawson's first self-produced feature film under her production banner, Trybe Films. Dawson also produced a 15-minute short film entitled "Bliss Virus” written and directed by Talia Lugacy. Additionally, Dawson hopes to produce Lugacy's first feature sometime in the near future.

Dawson won critical acclaim for her portrayal of Becky in Kevin Smith's "Clerks 2” for the Weinstein Company in 2006. She was also seen in "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints” opposite Robert Downey Jr., Shia LaBeouf, Dianne Wiest, Chazz Palminteri and Channing Tatum. The film was honored at the Sundance Film Festival and received the award for Special Jury Prize for a Dramatic Film.

In 2004 and 2005, Dawson carved out memorable performances in three films featuring fabulous ensemble casts. Dawson played Roxanne, wife of Alexander the Great in the Oliver Stone epic "Alexander,” rounding out an allstar cast including Colin Farrell, Angelina Jolie, Anthony Hopkins and Jared Leto; she made a huge impact starring in the Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller film noir drama "Sin City” starring Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Clive Owen and Brittany Murphy (and will reprise her role in the highly anticipated "Sin City 2”); and she starred as Mimi Valdez in the Chris Columbus-directed film adaptation of the famed Pulitzer Prize-winning Jonathan Larson Broadway musical "Rent,” joining many of the original Broadway cast members including Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, Jesse Martin and Taye Diggs.

In 2003, Dawson co-starred with Dwayne Johnson, Seann William Scott and Christopher Walken in Universal's action/comedy "The Rundown,” in which she played a Brazilian rebel leader, leading the fight for her enslaved people in order to get the money and the basic living essentials that they deserve. She also appeared in "Shattered Glass” with Hayden Christensen, Chloe Sevigny and Steve Zahn; and in the indie film "This Girl's Life” starring James Woods and Juliette Marquis.
