Virginia Madsen has starred in roles such as Candyman, The Prophecy (Christopher Walken), The Haunting in Connecticut, The Number 23 (Jim Carrey), Sideways, Red Riding Hood and more. Audiences first caught a glimpse of her as “Princess Irulan” in the 1984 science fiction epic Dune. She followed that up with Electric Dreams; however, it was in 1986 that Virginia captured the hearts of the audience with an intense portrayal of a Catholic school girl who fell in love with a boy from a prison camp in Fire with Fire. With over 35 releases since Fire with Fire thus far, Virginia is a busy actress and has played a variety of roles which further enhance her reputation as a fantastic actress who can adapt to any kind of role.

•• Virginia Madsen and Elias Koteas have signed on to Jake Squared. Koteas will play the title character, a filmmaker whose self-examination movie spins out of control. The Oscar nominated Madsen plays Beth, Jake’s confidant. The film is written and directed by Howard Goldberg, a Sundance Institute Fellowship recipient. Koteas, Goldberg and David K. Wilson are producing the indie. Shelley H. Surpin and Howard Himelstein are executive producing.
Elias Koteas and Virginia Madsen star in a surreal comedy about a filmmaker who decides to make a movie to help figure out out how he’s managed to screw up every relationship he’s ever had. But, the filming spirals out of his control and he has what’s either a mystical experience, a total nervous breakdown, or both, as his past selves and past loves literally and hysterically catch up with him.
