You might call Tracie Thoms a triple-triple threat: The Baltimore native sings, dances and acts, and her career encompasses film, television and theater. Introduced to acting and television at an early age — her father, Donald Thoms, is a Maryland Public Television host and cable TV executive — she further honed her craft at the Baltimore School for the Arts. Thoms went on earn degrees from Howard University and the Juilliard School in New York City. Since that time, the 37-year-old has become a rising star among a new generation of American actors.

Tracie Thoms' discipline as a performer, nurtured early on at the Baltimore School for the Arts, has enabled her to be spontaneous in character every week as Kat Miller, an avid detective on TV's "Cold Case." Even in the train-wreck big-screen version of "Rent," she fused her eagerness for performing with the passion of Joanne, a lawyer who just has to make a case for herself - or at least make a scene. Chris Rock's engaged and engaging new documentary "Good Hair," a good-humored exploration of the meaning and impact of female hairstyles in the African-American community, offered Thoms a chance to do something she hasn't done before on-screen.

Tracie Thoms says her style varies from day to day. "My everyday style can swing from super-casual to rock and roll to kinda chic. I say 'kinda chic' because I hate being uncomfortable. ...," says the actor/singer and Baltimore native. The Baltimore School for the Arts graduate took time out from her role on the CBS crime drama "Cold Case" to perform with current BSFA students at a Germano's Trattoria Cabaret. The look: Black cotton knit ruched Bird by Juicy Couture sheath dress.

New York -- Tracie Thoms is a self-confessed "Renthead," as diehard fans of the Broadway musical Rent call themselves. But the day the movie version of Rent premiered in New York, Thoms wasn't one of the fans across from the red carpet, she was on the red carpet. The 30-year-old Baltimore native is one of two newcomers playing a lead role in the just-released movie, which also stars six original Broadway cast members and fellow Rent newcomer Rosario Dawson (who happens to be a Hollywood star)

It may have been pouring rain, but inside Ryan's Daughter Irish Pub & Restaurant, stars were shining brightly. Three cast members of the movie, Rent, added pizazz to a crowd bubbling with excitement over the film's Baltimore premiere that evening. Wilson Heredia and Anthony Rapp came down from New York to support cast member Tracie Thoms, who is from here. "Family" is how Heredia and Rapp described relationships among the cast. "It's the nature of the story," Herediasaid. In fact, that "family feeling" permeated the place.

Opera was not Jason Ferrante's first love. "I was a serious Little League baseball player," he said. "It was only because I was too short that I gave up on that." Thus, Ferrante, who is "officially" 5-foot-6, spent the last six weeks in rehearsals at Wolf Trap for Volpone - a new opera by John Musto - not in Fort Lauderdale at spring training camp with the Orioles. Today he is, however, part of a doubleheader. Ferrante is one of two graduates from Baltimore School for the Arts' class of 1993 - Tracie Thoms is the other - who appear this week in high-profile performances.

The Informant! *** With any luck, before he reaches 40, Matt Damon will be recognized, as Edward Norton once put it, as "just a stone-cold good actor.... incredibly agile." He pulls off a brave comic change of pace in this Steven Soderbergh picture about a quirky whistle-blower. He anchors the movie with his unpredictable physical portrait of a man at odds with himself and makes it swing with his voice-over narration, full of quirky non sequiturs and Freudian slips. It's a brave performance, and a hoot.
