JENNIFER JASON LEIGH (Annie Sullivan) is an award-winning actress with a wide range of roles to her credit, who has recently taken her talents behind the camera. Last year, Leigh starred in the independent feature "The Anniversary Party," which she also co-wrote and co-directed with Alan Cumming, and on which she also served as a producer. Marking her writing and directing debut, the film brought her Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best First Feature and Best First Screenplay.

Among her many honors for her acting work, Leigh was named Best Actress by the National Society of Film Critics and the Chicago Film Critics Association, and earned Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations for her portrayal of fabled 1920s writer Dorothy Parker in Alan Rudolph's "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle." She received another Spirit Award nomination and won the New York Film Critics Circle and Montreal World Film Festival Awards for Best Actress for her work in "Georgia," which she also produced. She had earlier won the New York Film Critics Circle and Boston Society of Film Critics Awards for Best Supporting Actress for her performances in both "Miami Blues" and "Last Exit to Brooklyn." In addition, Leigh shared in a Golden Globe Award presented to the ensemble cast of Robert Altman's "Short Cuts."

Leigh first gained national attention with her starring role in Amy Heckerling's seminal teen comedy "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." She has since starred in more than 40 feature films, including "Grandview, U.S.A.," "The Men's Club," "The Big Picture," "Backdraft," "Rush," "Single White Female," "The Hudsucker Proxy," "Dolores Claiborne," "Bastard Out of Carolina," "Kansas City," "Washington Square" and "eXistenZ." She most recently starred as death row inmate Karla Faye Tucker in the television movie "Crossed Over," with Diane Keaton.

Leigh counts "Road to Perdition" as her second collaboration with director Sam Mendes, having previously worked with him when she starred as Sally Bowles in the Broadway revival of the musical "Cabaret." She recently returned to Broadway to star in the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Proof."
