Katie Holmes was the surprise special guest at the premiere of Hairspray in New York City. She looked stunning in a short black dress with a great haircut. Katie was there to support her pal Queen Latifah, who co-stars with Katie in their upcoming film, Mad Money. Katie walked the red carpet for the exciting premiere at the legendary Ziegfeld theatre which is across the street from the IMTA Headquarters, which will soon be hosting the upcoming IMTA New York, New York Convention!
Many beautiful models and appealing actors will be showing their skills to the agents, managers, casting directors and industry VIP's who will be scouting for new faces to represent! Katie herself is an alumni of the 1993 and 1995 IMTA New York Convention. She competed at IMTA and participated in seminars and workshops which got her noticed by industry greats Al Onorato, David Guillod and Bobby Moresco.
Katie actually shot her first audition at IMTA with the IMTA Video Crew. When Katie returned a couple of years later to present awards at IMTA, she debuted the first fifteen minutes of the pilot episode of Dawson's Creek. The entire ballroom was riveted by this ground-breaking stylish teen drama and Katie received thunderous applause! On that special night, she gave us a very nice interview saying,"Let's just say a girl from Toledo, Ohio wouldn't end up cast in a Hollywood movie if it weren't for IMTA!"
