THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST
Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee KATE HUDSON (Erica) made her studio film debut in 200 Cigarettes, co-starring Ben Affleck, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci, Jay Mohr, Dave Chappelle, Martha Plimpton and Paul Rudd. However, it was her career-making performance in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous that won the hearts of critics and moviegoers around the world. Her touching portrayal of "band aid" Penny Lane earned her a Golden Globe
Award, an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress and a BAFTA nomination, among numerous other honors and recognition, including the Broadcast Film Critics' Award for Breakthrough Performance. Kate achieved global box office success starring opposite Matthew McConaughey in the hit romantic comedy, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, which earned over $200 million at the box office worldwide. Other film credits include Alex & Emma for director Rob Reiner, Merchant-Ivory's contemporary comedy, Le Divorce, and You, Me and Dupree, opposite Owen Wilson, Matt Dillon and Michael Douglas, which grossed over $100 million internationally. In early 2008, Kate re-teamed with Matthew McConaughey for another worldwide box-office hit in Warner Bros.' Fool's Gold. Kate starred opposite Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars, marking her debut as a producer. In 2009, Kate dazzled in the role of a Vogue journalist in Rob Marshall's all-star movie musical, Nine. Her show-stopping number, "Cinema Italiano," was written specifically for the film, with her in mind. She followed that with a chilling turn in Michael Winterbottom's provocative noir thriller, The Killer Inside Me, opposite Casey Affleck and Jessica Alba. She will co-star alongside Bill Hader and Josh Gaf in the Dreamworks animated film Me & My Shadow, out in Winter 2013, and will guest starred in six episodes in the latest season of the hit FOX series, Glee. In 2007, Kate made her directorial debut with the short film, Cutlass, as part of Glamour magazine's "Reel Moments," in which first-time female directors worked from readers' personal essays.
