Julie Warner (born February 9, 1965 in Manhattan, New York) is an American actress from the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Warner is divorced from writer-director Jonathan Prince, and has a son named Jackson.

[edit] Career
Warner attended the Dalton School at age 12. While there, she met an agent who advised her to attempt acting, and soon after she landed a role on the soap opera Guiding Light. Warner then attended Brown University where she majored in theater arts and graduated in 1987. After college, Warner moved to Los Angeles where she worked as a waitress while auditioning for acting jobs.

[edit] Notable roles
Warner appeared in two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation: "Booby Trap" in 1989 and "Transfigurations" in 1990.

Warner's most famous roles include her breakout performance co-starring with Michael J. Fox in Doc Hollywood in 1991; co-starring opposite Billy Crystal in 1992's Mr. Saturday Night; and as Chris Farley's love interest in Tommy Boy in 1995. She also appeared as recurring character Megan O'Hara in the TV Series Nip/Tuck. In 2005, Warner began starring as wife to Howie Mandel in his hidden camera/situation comedy Hidden Howie.

One of summer's best, smartest action movies. The film is a satisfying conclusion to a trilogy that began in 2002 with "The Bourne Identity"and carried forward in 2004 with "The Bourne Supremacy."Each was a travelogue of espionage that took audiences around the globe as the amnesiac CIA assassin Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) sought his true identity while efficiently taking down thugs and government agents along the way. "Ultimatum"follows suit, but since this is the final film in the series, more answers are at hand, with Damon again succeeding at being a terrific ―and unlikely ―action hero. In this movie, the actor is put through hell ―the sort of hell no mere mortal could survive, such as falling off buildings and surviving horrific car crashes ―and yet throughout
