The University Program Council will host actress and 1998 Ohio University alumna Piper Perabo for a free guest lecture at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 12, in Baker University Center Ballroom B. 

After graduating with a B.F.A. in acting, Perabo established a name for herself in Hollywood, most notably starring in the blockbuster movie "Coyote Ugly." She also appeared in Christopher Nolan?s "The Prestige" with Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Scarlett Johansson; "Because I Said So" with Diane Keaton, Mandy Moore and Lauren Graham; and "First Snow," a film directed by Mark Fergus, costarring Guy Pearce and Adam Scott.

Perabo also made feature film appearances in "Cheaper by the Dozen 2" with Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt, "White Boyz" with Danny Hoch and "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" with Robert De Niro and Renee Russo.

One of the most talented and versatile actresses working today, Piper recently made her stage debut in Neil Labute's controversial play "Reasons to be Pretty" directed by Terry Kinney.

In addition to Perabo's speaking appearance, UPC also will host a free screening of "Coyote Ugly" at 9 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, in the Baker University Center Theatre.
