JOEY LAUREN ADAMS (Jamie) has appeared in more than thirty films. She is known for her distinctive, raspy voice and for her roles in View Askewniverse films, particularly Mallrats and Chasing Amy.
Adams' performance in Chasing Amy earned her both the 1997 Chicago Film Critics Award and Las vegas Film Critics Society Award for Most Promising Actress, and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress- Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
Her post-Smith projects included playing a spunky veterinarian's assistant who falls in love with a single father (Vince Vaughn) in 1998's A Cool, Dry Place. The following year, Adams appeared in her first big-budget Hollywood release, playing Adam Sandler's love interest in the successful comedy Big Daddy. She then went on to appear in many smaller films, including Beautiful and In the Shadows.
During 2006, Adams released her directorial debut, Come Early Morning, starring Ashley Judd and Tim Blake Nelson. The film, shot on location in Little Rock, Arkansas, was selected for the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.
