She will next be seen opposite Jennifer Lawrence in 'Joy.'

Isabella Rossellini has signed with APA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

The actress will next be seen this Christmas in David O. Russell’s Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence. She also was heard at Toronto last month voicing a hamster in the surrealist drama Closet Monster, about a teenage boy grappling with his sexual orientation, and she appeared in the Venice documentary The 1,000 Eyes of Dr. Maddin, about avant-garde filmmaker Guy Maddin. And at Cannes this year, Rossellini led the jury for the Un Certain Regard sidebar and also kicked off a multi-city tribute to her mother, Ingrid Bergman, on the centenary of her birth.

After launching her career as a model, Rossellini turned to acting, demonstrating an eclectic taste in work — her credits include David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, the macabre Robert Zemeckis comedy Death Becomes Her and the Ludwig van Beethoven biopic Immortal Beloved. She demonstrated a similarly eccentric sensibility as creator and director of the Sundance TV educational and environmental short-film series Green Porno, in which she reenacts the reproductive behavior of various animals. She adapted the series into a one-woman stage show last year.

Rossellini continues to be managed by Cindy Ambers at Art/Work.
