Katie Holmes in Mad Money in Theaters now!

IMTA alum Katie Holmes is starring in the feature film Mad Money opening nationwide today. This hilarious comedy is about three women who decide to rob the Federal Reserve Bank where they work. Katie plays the role of Jackie Truman, a young woman with an adventurous streak. The women become friends and plan to steal money that has been marked to be destroyed. When they almost get caught they have to work together to keep the authorities at bay.

Katie competed at IMTA twice, in 1993 and 1995 . She 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!" You can read a letter from Katie Holmes on this archived page! She then moved on to feature films such as Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Pieces of April, Batman Begins, and Thank You for Smoking.
