OLIVIA WILDE (Blind Date) most recently starred in the Formula One biographical drama "Rush," directed by Ron Howard and co-starring Chris Hemsworth, which opened in September. She additionally stars in a number of upcoming feature film releases, including "Third Person," written and directed by Paul Haggis, with a ensemble cast led by Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, James Franco and Adrien Brody; the comedy drama "Better Living Through Chemistry," with Sam Rockwell and Michelle Monaghan; and "The Longest Week," with Jason Bateman.

Wilde also recently starred in "Drinking Buddies," which premiered at the March 2013 South by Southwest Film Festival and went on to earn stellar reviews in its limited U.S. release, and in "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," opposite Steve Carell.

She also appeared in Alex Kurtzman's directorial debut, "People Like Us," "The Words," and the quirky political satire "Butter." Additionally, she starred in Stefan Ruzowitzky's thriller "Deadfall," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, Jon Favreau's "Cowboys & Aliens," and "The Change Up."

Wilde first drew wide recognition for her role in the 2010 3D futuristic blockbuster "Tron: Legacy," in which she starred as Jeff Bridges' trusted friend and protector, Quorra.

In 2011, she made her writing and directing debut for Glamour magazine's short film series with "Free Hugs," which received praise at film festivals throughout the U.S.

Raised by parents who are award-winning journalists and documentary filmmakers, Wilde was inspired to explore the documentary field. Her most recent effort was the PBS docu-series "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide," which aired in October 2012 to rave reviews. Inspired by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book, it introduces women and girls in unimaginable circumstances and their brave fight to change them. Additionally, she executive produced "Baseball in the Time of Cholera," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and received a special jury mention during judging. The film explores the current cholera epidemic in Haiti.

In 2010 she made her filmmaking mark at the Tribeca Film Festival by executive producing the short "Sun City Picture House," which follows a community in Haiti that rallies to build a movie theater after the disastrous 2010 earthquake. The film won the audience award at the Maui Film Festival and was also included in the DocuWeeks screening series.

In addition to her work on the big screen, Wilde played Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley on "House," which became the most watched television program in the world in 2008 and the winner of four Emmy Awards and two Golden Globes.

Her previous film credits include Paul Haggis' "The Next Three Days"; "Year One"; "Alpha Dog"; "Bickford Schmeckler's Cool Ideas," for which she won Best Actress at the Aspen Film Festival; and "Conversations with Other Women."

Her television credits include "The Black Donnellys," created by Paul Haggis; "Skin," produced by Jerry Bruckheimer; and a recurring role on the critically acclaimed FOX series "The O.C." On the stage, Wilde headlined in "Beauty on the Vine," in the Epic Theatre Center's off-Broadway production.
