SIMONA FUSCO STRATTEN will next co star in the upcoming AMERICAN SUMMER opposite Matthew Lillard, Efren Ramirez and Tom Arnold which is produced by the same producers as AMERICAN PIE.

Born in Milan, Italy, Simona grew up in both Italy and Vienna, Austria. At the age of 14 she moved to the United States where her first “Hollywood moment” was when director Oliver Stone approached her to play the title role in LOLITA -- which her mother refused to let her do because of the subject matter.
Famed columnist James Bacon described this talented beauty as “the most spectacular looking blonde since Marilyn Monroe!” And who but one of a select few to photograph and interview Monroe, arguably Hollywood’s most iconic bombshell, would know better? Not too many actresses can make that claim!
Simona’s other credits include the part of ‘Ulsa’ in the hit comedy BEERFEST from the famed writing team as the ‘Broken Lizard,’ and roles in BOTTOM'S UP with Paris Hilton, CHASING GHOSTS opposite Michael Madsen and Shannon Sossaman, and a guest star spot on the hit HBO series ENTOURAGE.
Not only a silver screen beauty, Simona has been involved in the campaigns for such popular brands as Coca-Cola, Hawaiian Tropics, Bacardi for Superbowl, Miller Lite for Nascar, Guess! By Marciano etc and Fendi for Vogue magazine among countless other magazine covers worldwide. Simona is a force of nature, conquering film, television, corporate campaigns and whatever else she set’s her sights on! www.simonafusco.com or www.myspace.com/simonafusco
