Joey Lauren Adams' combination of raw talent, unpredictable delivery
and comic timing has made her an actress to watch. Not content to
portray the same character over and over, her screen portrayals reveal
a wide range.
Joey is currently working on Loving Up a Storm, which she has written
and is also set to direct. She will star opposite Vince Vaughn and
Billy Bob Thornton. She has starred in James Toback's Harvard Man with
Sarah Michelle Gellar. Harvard Man explores what young people go
through in their quest to find their own identity against a background
of love, sex, basketball, crime and experimentation. Adams was also
seen in Beeper opposite Harvey Keitel. Prior to that, In the Shadows
was a film where Adams plays a doctor who falls in love with a hit man,
who is sent to Hollywood to take the life of a stuntman - her father.
This film also starred Matthew Modine, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and James
Caan. Adams will next be seen starring in Shirley Maclaine's
directorial debut Bruno, the story of a 9-year-old spelling bee
champion, along with Kathy Bates and Gary Sinise.
Most notably, Adams starred opposite Adam Sandler in Big Daddy and
before that, the critically acclaimed Kevin Smith film Chasing Amy for
which she received a Golden Globe nomination. Other memorable roles
include Nora Ephron's box office smash Michael, Richard Linklater's
cult classic Dazed and Confused and Kevin Smith's Mallrats.
This Arkansas native came to Los Angeles in 1989 and soon established
herself on television in such series as the "Married With Children"
spin off "Top of the Heap," with Matt LeBlanc, and "Vinny and Bobby."
She made television history as the woman who took Bud Bundy's virginity
on "Married With Children." Adams also had a recurring role on the
acclaimed series "Second Noah."
Adams also starred in a short film shown at the Sundance Film Festival
titled Strange Habit in which she played a young woman suffering from
bulimia. The film later aired on MTV.
Adams is also a published poet and writes Country and Western music in
her spare time.
