Jake Gyllenhaal (1980): Young actor who had his breakout role in 2001's Donnie Darko. Hollywood is in Jake's genes: his father is TV and movie director Stephen Gyllenhaal, his mother is screenwriter Naomi Foner, and his sister is actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. Jake established a name for himself with notable performances in Bubble Boy (2001), The Good Girl (2002) and The Moonlight Mile (2002). More recently, Gyllenhaal starred in The Day After Tomorrow (2004).

Alyssa Milano (1972): Actress who went from tomboy to teen queen on the long-running series “Who’s The Boss?” Milano began acting as a child, and landed her first professional role as an orphan in the touring company of “Annie”. Just a few years later, a ten-year-old Alyssa was cast as Tony Danza’s daughter, the lovable Samantha Micelli, on “Who’s the Boss?” When the series ended in 1992, Alyssa had a hard time transitioning to more mature roles. Being that she literally grew up in front of the camera, Alyssa was typecast in Tinseltown. After a series of less-than-memorable features, Milano gave a breakthrough performance as a naughty Amy Fisher in “Casualties of Love: The Long Island Lolita Story” (1993). The sexually charged role cast aside the sweet image of Samantha Micelli, and Milano has since starred in the flick Fear (1996), Kiss the Bride (1999), Buying the Cow (2002), and Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003). Currently, Alyssa can be seen playing a witch on the WB's supernatural series “Charmed.”

Jennifer Beals (1963): Actress who danced her way into movie theatres across the country in the 1983 smash hit Flashdance (1983). Beals was a freshman at Yale when Flashdance fever hit, and she soon found herself at the center of a media sensation. After playing a woman brought back to life by Sting in The Bride (1985), Beals appeared opposite Nicolas Cage in Vampire’s Kiss (1988). She went on to give memorable performances in such diversified roles as a woman entangled with the Mafia in Le Grand Pardon II (1992) and a neglected wife in Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle (1994). In addition to garnering acclaim for her work in the 1992 Sundance winner, In the Soup, Beals has lit up the silver screen in Four Rooms (1995), Devil in a Blue Dress (1995), The Last Days of Disco (1998), A House Divided (2000), The Anniversary Party (2001), Roger Dodger (2002), and Runaway Jury (2003). Beals currently stars on the TV series "The L word" (2004).

Tim Reid (1944): Actor and director who is most remembered for playing the smooth disk jockey, Venus Flytrap, on the long-running comedy “WKRP in Cincinnati” (1978-82). Reid found his niche on the small screen early in his career, and after turning in a rousing performance as a preacher on an episode of “That’s My Mama,” Reid became a regular on “The Richard Pryor Show” and “The Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Hour” in 1977. Some of his other sitcom credits include “Teachers Only” (1982-83), “Simon & Simon” (1981-88), “Frank's Place” (1988-89) and “Snoops” (1989-90). In 1996, Reid made his directorial debut with the acclaimed feature Once Upon a Time... When We Were Colored (1997). Reid returned to series television to help raise twins who were separated at birth on “Sister Sister” (1994-1999).
