With her pretty blonde tresses and million-dollar smile, American actress Kaitlin Doubleday seemed a natural for on-camera talent, and launched her acting career during her late teens. Doubleday made a highly auspicious feature film debut as Joanna, one of the many (many) beautiful girls bedecking the cast of Steven Spielberg's Frank Abagnale biopic Catch Me if You Can. A romantic lead in Ryan Shiraki's gender-bending teen comedy Freshman Orientation followed, but marked something of a step backward, receiving as it did extremely limited theatrical distribution and a long-delayed U.S. video release. In 2005 and 2006, respectively, the actress essayed supporting parts in the workplace comedy Waiting and the teen comedy Accepted. She also signed for a very brief turn in Jake Kasdan's media satire The TV Set (2006), starring David Duchovny, and portrayed the romantic lead in the short-lived 2007 sitcom Cavemen, ostensibly a pointed commentary about race relations based on the famous Geico commercials.
