Another Accomplishment for IMTA Alum Jessica Biel!

According to the L.A. Times:
"Jessica Biel just moved a step ahead on the "having it all" ladder: The brunet landed Justin Timberlake's marriage proposal and now a hot movie role.

Biel allegedly beat out several young starlets for the part of actress Vera Miles in "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho," a film about the suspense master's classic film.

She joins previously reported cast members Scarlett Johansson, playing Janet Leigh (the showering blond that shocked audiences by dying off in the beginning of the film) and James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins, who played creepy motel operator Norman Bates."

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!
