Olivia Wilde

Equally successful in film and television, the beautiful and talented Olivia Wilde has starred in an array of comedic and dramatic roles. Wilde can currently be seen in FOX’s hit, Emmy-nominated drama House opposite Hugh Laurie.

Wilde also starred opposite Jack Black in Columbia’s biblical-era comedy film The Year One. Judd Apatow, Harold Ramis, and Owen Wilson produced, with Ramis also directing.

Most recently, Wilde starred in and produced Fix, the story of documentary filmmakers who race all over California to help out a relative; Fix opened at the 2008 Slamdance Film Festival.

Wilde previously co-starred opposite Bruce Willis, Emile Hirsch, and Justin Timberlake in the Universal film Alpha Dog, based on the true story of Jesse James Hollywood. Wilde also starred opposite Josh Duhamel in Turistas. She has completed the independent features Bickford Shmeckler’s Cool Ideas, for which she won Best Actress at the Aspen Film Festival, as well as Conversations with Other Women, opposite Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckert, which received glowing reviews at the Telluride Film Festival.

On stage, Wilde starred in Epic Theatre Center's off-Broadway production of Beauty on the Vine in 2007. On television she co-starred in the drama The Black Donnellys, created by Paul Haggis. Wilde’s television breakout role was in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced series Skin for FOX, but she is perhaps better known for her recurring role on the critically acclaimed FOX series, The O.C.

Wilde is passionate about contributing to the world in which we all live. She was among the early Hollywood supporters of President Barack Obama, hitting the campaign trail during the primary season. She is also a longtime advocate of PowerUp Gambia, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create medical clinics in rural Africa using solar panels to supplement electricity.
