Miranda Presley (Samantha Mathis, right) and Kyle Davidson (Dermot Mulroney) encounter Trisha Yearwood at the Nashville police station in "The Thing Called Love." The Paramount film was directed by Peter Bogdanovich and produced by John Davis. The screenplay was written by Carol Heikkinen. George Folsey, Jr. is the executive producer and Darlene K. Chan is the co-producer.
SANDRA BULLOCK (Linda Lue Linden) co-starred in "The Vanishing" and "Love Potion #9." She co-stars with Robert Duvall and Shirley MacLaine in the upcoming "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway," and she co-stars with Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes in the upcoming "Demolition Man."
On television Bullock starred in the NBC series "Working Girl." Her other television appearances include "The Preppie Murder" and the mini-series "Lucky/Chances."
The daughter of a German opera singer and a vocal coach from Alabama, Bullock spent much of her youth in Germany singing in the children's choir and studying piano. Although she became an accomplished musician, she developed an interest in acting after moving with her family to Washington, D.C. and decided to pursue acting as a career while attending East Carolina University in North Carolina. After moving to New York, she made her stage debut in Peter Mahoney's off-Broadway production of "No Time Flat" at the WPA Theatre.
Country music star K.T. OSLIN (Lucy) makes her motion picture debut in "The Thing Called Love." Oslin is a three-time Grammy winner and four-time Academy of Country Music Association winner whose first two albums ("80's Ladies" and "This Woman") went platinum. She recently released the album, "Confessions of an Aging Sex Bomb."
Oslin was born in Crossit, Arkansas and her family spent time in Mobile, Alabama and Houston, Texas. After attending a small east Texas junior college, Oslin formed a folk singing trio in the '60s with radio producer David Jones and singer-songwriter Guy Clark.
After a year in the chorus of the national touring company of "Hello, Dolly" starring Carol Channing, Oslin joined the New York company starring Betty Grable. She then appeared in the Lincoln Center revival of "West Side Story" and the Broadway production of "Promises, Promises" before turning her attention to songwriting.
With a $7,000 loan from her Aunt Reba, Oslin participated in a Nashville showcase that brought her talent to the attention of record producer Harold Shedd and the head of RCA Nashville, Joe Galante. Oslin's first album in 1987, "80's Ladies," set a record for a debut album by a woman in country music by entering the charts at the number 15 position. It was the first debut album by a woman in country music to break the Gold barrier since Anne Murray's "Snowbird" in 1973.
Playing herself in "The Thing Called Love" is TRISHA YEARWOOD, winner of seven Best New Artist awards, including the American Music Award. Yearwood's first album, "Trisha Yearwood," was certified platinum for a million copies sold and featured the hit single "She's in Love With the Boy," which was a Billboard No. 1 single for two weeks. Her second album, "Hearts in Armor," was released in 1992 and has been certified Gold for more than 500,000 copies sold.
Yearwood grew up in the small town of Monticello in north Georgia with the dream of marrying Elvis. Somewhere along the line, that dream got translated into country music and Yearwood went to Nashville to get a music business degree from Belmont College. An intern job at MTM Records in publicity led to a receptionist's position. On the side, she began to sing demos and get work singing background vocals on master sessions. When she finally got the nerve, she sang solo at a music showcase in Nashville and landed an MCA recording contract.
Yearwood appeared on the Kenny Rogers Christmas Special on CBS and will be representing a new perfume line through Revlon cosmetics.
