Author Biography - Jessica Lange
Jessica Lange is a veteran actress. Born in Minnesota, she studied mime with Etienne Decroux in Paris before moving to New York, where she worked as a waitress at the Lion's Head bar in the West Village. Since landing the female lead in the 1976 remake of "King Kong," she has had a rich film career that includes Bob Rafelson's "The Postman Always Rings Twice," Sydney Pollack' "Tootsie," Graeme Clifford's "Frances," Tony Richardson's "Blue Sky," and "Julie Taymor's Titus," among many others. She has also earned acclaim for her stage work, including Broadway and West End productions of "A Streetcar Named Desire, Long Day's Journey into Night," and "The Glass Menagerie." She will star opposite Drew Barrymore in 2008's "Grey Gardens." Patti Smith, widely held to be punk rock's poet laureate, released the influential debut album "Horses" on Arista Records in 1975, beginning an iconic career as a musician, poet, visual artist, and activist. This spring, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris hosted a major solo art exhibition of her visual work, drawn from pieces created between 1967 and 2007.
