Connie Nielsen: Babe of the week #34 (Aug. 2012)

Connie Nielsen
("Boss," Mission to Mars, Gladiator)
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=

Connie Nielsen grew up in the small seaside town of Elling, Denmark, and was raised a Mormon. Her father was a bus driver and her mother was an insurance clerk who also acted and wrote musical reviews. Nielsen's first taste of acting came when she was 15, performing in a cabaret written by her mother. At 18, she went to Paris where she worked as an actress and model. After Nielsen auditioned for French Kiss (losing the role to Meg Ryan), writer-director Lawrence Kasdan encouraged her to move to the United States permanently. Her first big break came in The Devil's Advocate in 1997, but it was Gladiator (2000) that provided her with her breakthrough role. Nielsen speaks eight languages: Danish, English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian and Swedish.
Boss: After nearly losing his career, his family and his mind, Mayor Tom Kane’s (Kelsey Grammer) grip on Chicago is as powerful as ever. With high doses of medication, he’s able to beat back the physical symptoms of his debilitating brain disease, but it comes at a cost. Kane is left with intense and uncontrollable neurological side effects. Despite the delusions, Kane breaks ground on the O’Hare Airport expansion and looks toward his next endeavor -- protecting and repairing his legacy. With the astute counsel of new aides Mona Fredricks (Sanaa Lathan) and Ian Todd (Jonathan Groff), he plans to remove and rebuild a long forgotten housing project, now home to gang activity and rampant corruption. Committed to his unorthodox agenda, Kane prepares to cut out the cancers within the political machine he helped build.
