OLD DOGS

A talented and captivating performer, KELLY PRESTON (Vicki) has performed in a broad range of motion pictures, portraying roles in such diverse films as "Jerry Maguire,” "Citizen Ruth” and "For the Love of the Game.” Her dynamic and compelling performances have proven her to be one of the most sought-after actors of our generation.

Preston was born and raised in Hawaii. As a result of her father's position with an agricultural firm, the family moved first to Iraq for one year and then to Australia for two years. It was while she was a teenager in Hawaii that Preston appeared in television commercials and began to develop an interest in an acting career.

Preston graduated from Punahou High School in Hawaii, along with fellow alumni, President Barack Obama. She then relocated to Los Angeles and enrolled in the University of Southern California where she studied drama and theatre. She ultimately transferred to the University of California at Los Angeles and decided to pursue acting seriously. She would soon win her very first audition.

Preston recently wrapped production on "The Last Song,” based on Nicholas Sparks' latest novel. The film stars Greg Kinnear as an estranged father who tries to reconnect with his teenaged daughter (Miley Cyrus) through the only thing they have in common—music. Preston portrays the teen's mother in the story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, first loves and second chances. The film is directed by Julie Anne Robinson from a screenplay by Sparks & Jeff Van Wie.

Preston recently filmed "Casino Jack” alongside Kevin Spacey. The film is based on the true story of a hot-shot Washington, D.C. lobbyist and his protégé, who both go down hard as their schemes to peddle influence lead to corruption and murder. Preston plays the role of Pam Abramoff.

She was seen on a four-episode arc on the hit NBC show "Medium” as an attractive venture capitalist who likes what she sees when she teams with Joe Dubois (Jake Weber), ultimately creating tension in his marriage.

Recent projects include the HBO pilot, "Suburban Shootout,” directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, and the Lifetime Original Movie "The Tenth Circle” with Ron Eldard. Based on The New York Times best-selling novel by Jodi Picoult, "The Tenth Circle” is a powerful account of an American family, and a story that probes the unbreakable bond between parent and child.
