Katie Holmes stars in "Jack and Jill" (2011), opposite Adam Sandler and Al Pacino, as Erin Sadelstein.

Exuding an exceptional maturity both on and off the screen, Katie Holmes is a captivating young woman, landing major roles in both feature film and television. She has showcased her ability as an actress to play a wide spectrum of diversified roles. She has appeared in several notable films ranging from the action blockbuster "Batman Begins," starring Christian Bale and directed by Christopher Nolan, to critically acclaimed art house pictures such as Ang Lee's "The Ice Storm" and Peter Hedges' "Pieces of April."

Holmes was most recently seen on the big screen in "The Extra Man," "The Romantics," "Don't Be Afraid of The Dark," opposite Guy Pearce, and "The Son of No One." On television, she portrayed First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in "The Kennedys," opposite Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy.

Holmes has worked with some of Hollywood's most prominent and talented directors. Her credits include "Wonder Boys," directed by Curtis Hanson; "Thank You for Smoking," starring opposite Robert Duvall and directed by Jason Reitman; "The Gift," directed by Sam Raimi; "Abandon," directed by Stephen Gaghan; "Go," directed by Doug Liman; "Phone Booth," directed by Joel Schumacher; "The Singing Detective," directed by Keith Gordon; "First Daughter," directed by Forest Whitaker; "Teaching Mrs. Tingle," directed by Kevin Williamson; and "Disturbing Behavior," directed by David Nutter. 2008 marked her Broadway debut in Arthur Millers "All My Sons" opposite John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson. Her portrayal of Ann garnered glowing reviews and established her as an accomplished actress on both screen and stage.

Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, Katie Holmes began acting in high school theater productions but didn't believe she had a chance at a professional acting career living in the Midwest. Fate intervened, and while attending a national modeling and talent convention in New York City, she met a manager who encouraged her to come to Los Angeles for television's pilot season.

In 1996, Holmes landed the role of Libbets Casey opposite Tobey Maguire and Sigourney Weaver in Lee's award-winning drama "The Ice Storm" while in Los Angeles for pilot season. A year later she was cast as Joey Potter on the TV series "Dawson's Creek," opposite James Van Der Beek and Michelle Williams. The show quickly became the highest-rated series on the WB network throughout its six-season run.

Holmes married Tom Cruise in November, 2006.
