Alluring audiences with emotionally tinged performances has been the signature of Golden Globe-winner Angela Bassett, who personifies a sense of dignity and pride whenever she appears on screen. She recently received critical acclaim for her roles in “American Horror Story: Coven,” “American Horror Story: FreakShow,” and will be returning this season as Ramona Royale in “American Horror Story: Hotel,” alongside Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, and Matt Bomer. Bassett can next be seen in the Gramercy Pictures film “London Has Fallen,” opposite Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman. She currently stars in Spike Lee’s film, “Chi-Raq” for Amazon Studios, as well as Stephen Poliakoff’s mini-series “Close to The Enemy” on BBC 2.
Perhaps best known for her breakthrough role as Betty Suarez on ABC’s hit comedy “Ugly Betty,” Golden Globe-winner and two-time nominee America Ferrera recently wrapped production on Ricky Gervais’ satirical film, “Special Correspondents,” set to premiere on Netflix in 2016. She currently stars on NBC’s new comedy, “Superstore,” in addition to serving as a producer on the series. Ferrera is also known for her outstanding roles in “Cesar Chavez,” “End of Watch,” “It’s a Disaster” and “Lords of Dogtown.” She is currently working on the DreamWorks mega-franchise “How to Train Your Dragon 3” which is set for release in 2018.
Chloë Grace Moretz has been captivating audiences since she was five years old when she booked a lead role in Michael Bay’s remake of “The Amityville Horror” for MGM. She has appeared in nearly thirty films since then, working with the industry’s elite filmmakers and gaining accolades along the way. She can next be seen starring in Rick Yancey’s trilogy, “The Fifth Wave,” set for release in January 2016.
Renowned for his distinct portrayals in both comedic and dramatic roles over the past forty years, two-time Golden Globe nominee Dennis Quaid took his first step into the spotlight in the late 1970s for roles in such films as “Breaking Away,” before gaining public and critical acclaim for his role in the 1983 release “The Right Stuff.” Other notable credits include “The Rookie,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “Traffic,” “Vantage Point,” “Frequency,” “The Parent Trap” and “Soul Surfer.” Most recently, Quaid stars in and executive produces Crackle’s auction drama series, “The Art of More,” which was just renewed for a second season. In 2016, Quaid will star in the comedy-drama film “A Dog’s Purpose,” alongside Bradley Cooper and Britt Robertson.
