MALIN AKERMAN (Gertrude) is fast becoming one of the industry's busiest young actresses in Hollywood today. In March 2009, she co-starred as Laurie/Silk Spectre in Zack Snyder's "Watchmen,” which opened at No. 1 with more than $50 million. Last year, she starred in the hit romantic comedy "27 Dresses,” with Katherine Heigl, James Marsden and Edward Burns, under the direction of Anne Fletcher. In 2009, she will star in the Peter Billingsley-directed comedy "Couples Retreat,” with Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman and Jon Favreau.

In 2007, Akerman starred with Ben Stiller in the romantic comedy "The Heartbreak Kid,” directed by the Farrelly brothers. Her other film credits include the independent releases "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle” and "The Brothers Solomon.”

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Akerman moved to Toronto with her family at the age of 2 and spent her youth in both Canada and Sweden. At age 5, she began modeling and acting in television commercials. When she was 17, she won the "Ford Supermodel of Canada” search and began spending her summers modeling in Europe. While enjoying success as a model, Akerman ultimately decided to attend college and to focus on her acting.
