Jessica Biel in Guys and Dolls!

IMTA alum Jessica Biel has been cast in the one of a kind Guys and Dolls in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl. According to BroadwayWorld, "When Frank Loesser wrote the music and lyrics for Guys and Dolls - a Musical Fable of Broadway he may not have envisioned an outdoor production at an iconic venue nestled in the Hollywood Hills, but the all-star cast of Guys and Dolls in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl will sing and dance beneath those "stars in the sky" in an original, fully-staged production especially adapted for the Hollywood Bowl stage."

Regarding the talented film and television star Jessica
Biel's inspired casting, Richard Jay-Alexander gushes - "She blew me away when she came to meet with us at Kevin Stites' apartment. I'm beyond excited she'll be joining us this summer." Tickets to the amazing Hollywood Bowl venue go on sale May 2nd to the general public.

Jessica Biel amazed all of us at IMTA in 1994 where her beauty, acting potential and singing and dancing abilities caught the attention of the agents, managers and casting directors who attend every IMTA Convention looking for new faces to represent. Jessica gave an exclusive interview to us in 1998 after starring in the hit WB television series 7th Heaven. You can read the entire archived interview here!

Here's an excerpt from that interview:

How has your life changed since you attended the IMTA Convention?
Jessica: I went from amateur to professional actress thanks to my personal manager Diane Hardin and my agent Jeff Morrone who I met at the IMTA Convention.

Would you recommend attending an IMTA Convention to other aspiring young actors and models?
Jessica: Definitely! You will meet people who can change your life and make your dreams come true!

Congratulations to Jessica for being cast in such an unusual and exciting production of one of America's greatest musicals!
