LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Golden Globe nominee Jennifer Garner is sick.

``She has a viral infection,'' publicist Nicole King said Tuesday, adding the ``Alias'' star isn't hospitalized and is resting at home in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old actress has been forced to reschedule promotion of her new movie, ``Elektra.'' It was still up in the air whether Garner will appear at Saturday's Las Vegas premiere for the film, King said.

Garner plays an assassin for hire as the resurrected warrior woman in the comic book adaptation ``Elektra,'' a spin-off of her character from 2003's ``Daredevil.''

She is nominated for a best dramatic actress Golden Globe award for her role in the ABC-TV spy series ``Alias.'' The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will present Golden Globes to winners on Jan. 16.

``Alias'' returns for its fourth season with a two-hour special Wednesday.
