Whether portraying Mrs. Clause opposite Tim Allen in the last two installments of Disney's successful "The Santa Clause" trilogy or time traveling alongside Dennis Quaid in New Line's "Frequency," Mitchell has lent her talents to an impressive and diverse range of roles, most notably as the girlfriend of Angelina Jolie in her portrayal of supermodel Gia in the eponymous Golden Globe-winning HBO telefilm.
