Julia GeorgePlayed by Piper Perabo
Julia George is the driven producer of the number one cable TV news program in the country. She doesn't just control the nation's headlines, she owns them. She's squeaky clean on paper, but fights in the mud when necessary.
Golden Globe-nominated Piper Perabo is one of the most talented and versatile actresses working today. She recently starred as Annie Walker in all five seasons of USA Network's spy drama Covert Affairs.
In May 2009, she made her stage debut in Neil Labute's controversial play Reasons to be Pretty, directed by Terry Kinney. She co-stared alongside Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski and Pablo Schreiber. In Fall 2015, Perabo returned to the stage in the MCC Theater's off-Broadway production of Lost Girls.
Although new to the theater, she is no stranger to the screen. In 2007, she was seen in Christopher Nolan's The Prestige, with Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale; in Because I Said So, with Diane Keaton and Lauren Graham; and in First Snow, a film directed by Mark Fergus, costarring Guy Pearce and Adam Scott.
Next, Perabo was seen in John Glenn's disturbing thriller The Heaven Project, with Paul Walker, and Disney's Beverly Hills Chihuahua, alongside Jaime Lee Curtis.
Perabo was also seen in Paramount Vantage's Carriers in New Mexico. She played the female lead, opposite Chris Pine and Lou Taylor Pucci, in the post-apocalyptic thriller about four friends trying to escape a viral pandemic.
Shortly after, Perabo starred alongside Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Emily Blunt and Jeff Daniels in the sci-fi action film Looper.
Some of her other film credits include Adam Shankman's Cheaper by the Dozen 2, in which she reprised her role as the eldest daughter to Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt, along with the romantic comedy Imagine Me & You, with Lena Heady and Matthew Goode, and the crime drama 10th & Wolf, with an ensemble cast that included James Marsden and Dennis Hopper.
Her feature film debut was in the comedy White Boyz, written by Danny Hoch. She also starred in Coyote Ugly.
Outside of her work on screen and stage, Perabo became an IRC (International Rescue Committee) Voice to raise awareness of the refugee crisis in Europe and help those displaced by conflict, religious persecution and political oppression around the globe.
Perabo lives in New York City.
