A CINDERELLA STORY
With an impressive body of work that encompasses television, film, and theatre, JENNIFER COOLIDGE (Fiona) is quickly emerging as one of Hollywood's most versatile and sought after talents. Last summer, she was seen in two of the year's largest grossing comedies. In MGM's Legally Blonde II: Red, White, and Blonde, she starred opposite Reese Witherspoon as Paulette, the innocent manicurist with an unexpected and hilarious tough side, and returned to the screen as Stiffler's Mom in the much anticipated American Wedding, Universal's third installment of the raunchy teen classics. Currently, Coolidge is filming Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, directed by Brad Silberling and also starring Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep and Jude Law. She has also recently signed a deal with NBC to develop and star in her own half hour comedy.
Coolidge is probably best known for her breakout performance in Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy's critically acclaimed Best In Show, in an unforgettable role as a woman whose love for her 95 year-old husband is based upon such similarities as peas and soup. In 2001, Coolidge starred in the Broadway production of Claire Boothe Luce's comedy The Women and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play. The all-star cast also featured Kristen Johnson, Rue McClanahan, Cynthia Nixon and Mary Louise Wilson. Coolidge started her career at the renowned Groundlings Theatre and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from Emerson College. She landed roles in such films as Trial and Error, Restaurant, and A Night at the Roxbury.
More recently, she has appeared in Brown's Requiem, the hit Comedy Austin Powers: the Spy Who Shagged Me, Broken Hearts Club, Down To Earth, and Pootie Tang. Coolidge has also appeared on television with recurring roles in King of the Hill and as a hilarious guest star on Seinfeld as a bewildered girlfriend. She has also appeared as a series regular on such shows as Ladies Man, Strip Mall, Blind Men, Another Shot, She-TV, and Roseanne's Sketch Comedy Show. Her guest star appearances have included roles on Sex and the City, Friends, Sketch Pad and Rude Awakenings.
Coolidge lives in Los Angeles.
