Biography:
Piper Lisa Perabo was born 31.October 1976 in Dallas, Texas, but raised in Toms River, NJ, Piper Lisa Perabo was the daughter of Mary Charlotte, a physical therapist, and George William Perabo, a poetry professor and dean. Growing up in an artistic family helped push Perabo (named after the actress Piper Laurie) to follow her love of acting to college, where she studied theater at Ohio State University. Her big break came by accident the summer before her senior year, when she accompanied her actor boyfriend to a New York audition. She caught the eye of a casting director, who asked her to read and eventually hooked her up with a manager. Perabo finished her senior year back in Ohio, getting a friend to drive her to Columbus and then taking the 17-hour bus trip to New York City for every audition she could land. After graduation, she moved to the Big Apple, working a series of menial jobs - bagel maker, cocktail waitress - and living on a friend's couch. Amazingly, after being in town for just one month, she landed her first movie.

Sharp-eyed critics took note of Perabo in "Whiteboyz" (1999), in which she played the serious-minded Midwestern girlfriend of Danny Hoch's hip-hop gangsta wannabe. Although the film was not widely seen - Hoch accused the studio of burying it - Perabo managed the amazing feat of leaping from indie actress to big studio star the following year. In the live-action/animation adaptation of the classic cartoon "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" (2000), she was cast as a rookie FBI agent, aptly named Karen Sympathy. The film boasted an enviable cast, including Robert De Niro as Fearless Leader, Jason Alexander as Boris Badenov, and Rene Russo as Natasha Fatale, as well as a $76 million budget. It barely recouped half that amount amidst a massive critical drubbing. Luckily for Perabo, Hollywood had a short memory, and her next role was in a big enough success to erase any black marks against her.
