America Ferrera received her second Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series as the title character in the ABC series "Ugly Betty." In 2007 she received her first Primetime Emmy for this role. In 2008 she was honored with the Chevy Entertainer of the Year Award at the ALMA Awards, and received an Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series and a Golden Globe Nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series-Musical or Comedy. On the big screen Ferrera can currently be seen in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2." Other film credits include Ken Kwapis' "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," Catherine Hardwicke's "Lords of Dogtown" and the 2005 Sundance Film Festival entry, "How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer," written and directed by Georgina Riedel.

Primetime Emmy Award winner Laurence Fishburne recently signed on to CBS' drama series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," where he will join the cast as a former pathologist who is now working as a traveling college lecturer. He was recently seen in "21," opposite Kevin Spacey, and can soon be seen in "Days of Wrath," opposite Amber Valetta and Wilmer Valderrama. Additionally Fishburne returned to Broadway on April 2008 at the Booth Theatre for a limited engagement of the one man show, "Thurgood," about the life of Thurgood Marshall. His performance earned him a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play.

Jennifer Love Hewitt plays Melinda Gordon on CBS' drama series "Ghost Whisperer." She most recently appeared in Twentieth Century Fox's live action/CGI features, "Garfield" and "Garfield 2: A Tale of Two Kitties." She was also recently seen starring in two independent features, "The Truth About Love" and "If Only," which she produced with her production company, LoveSpell Entertainment. Hewitt is also known to television audiences as Sarah Reeves from the award-winning drama "Party of Five."

Hayden Panettiere is best known as the indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet on NBC's drama "Heroes," which earned a Primetime Emmy Nomination in 2007 for Outstanding Drama Series. In July 2008, she received a Teen Choice Award for Choice Female Actress in a Television Drama Series. Panettiere received the Genesis Wyler Award from The Humane Society of the United States for her impassioned efforts in raising awareness of animal welfare worldwide. Her film credits include "Fireflies," opposite Julia Roberts, Willem Dafoe and Emily Watson, "The Architect," opposite Anthony LaPaglia and Isabella Rosselini, and "Mr. Gibb," co-starring Bill Sadler and Tim Daly.

William Petersen portrays Gil Grissom on CBS' Emmy-nominated drama "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." In addition to his character role, Petersen is also an executive producer. He recently appeared in a five-week run of the Trinity Repertory Company production of "Dublin Carol." His major film credits include "The Contender," "The Skulls," "Fear," "Mulholland Falls" and "Manhunter."

Vanessa Williams received her second nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series this year for her role as Wilhelmina Slater on ABC's "Ugly Betty." In 2008 Williams' role also earned her an Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and a Screen Actors Guild Award Nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. Her career has encompassed Broadway, music, videos, television and motion pictures. She has sold over four million albums worldwide, and her skills as an actress on stage, in film and on television have earned praise from the most seasoned critics. Williams has played many diverse roles on television in such productions as "Stompin' at the Savoy," "The Boy Who Loved Christmas," "The Jacksons: An American Dream," "Bye, Bye Birdie," "Nothing Lasts Forever," "The Odyssey," "Don Quixote," "The Courage to Love" and "A Diva's Christmas Carol."
