NDIE MACDOWELL was a former supermodel for racy Calvin Klein TV ads before landing her feature debut as Jane in 1984's Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. Unfortunately, her Southern accent was deemed too distracting and her lines were dubbed over by Glenn Close; happily, it was the last time she would be treated so shabbily. By the release of her third film, Steven Soderbergh's 1989 sleeper hit sex, lies and videotape, MacDowell had established herself as a serious actress. Her talent for light comedy blossomed with Green Card, and with Harold Ramis's Groundhog Day, and she hit a career high opposite Hugh Grant in 1994's Four Weddings and a Funeral. MacDowell again collaborated with Ramis on Multiplicity, and then with Nora Ephron on Michael (both 1996), proving beyond a doubt her talent for comic timing and for simultaneously projecting both intelligence and sauciness. She next exercised her largely untended flair for drama in German director Wim Wenders's noir-tinged drama The End of Violence. 1999 brought a turn playing a rival news anchor to that redoubtable porcine puppet, Miss Piggy, in Muppets From Space; and a co-starring role alongside Sharon Stone in the Albert Brooks comedy The Muse.
