HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

A comedic star borne from the "Saturday Night Live” stage, KRISTEN WIIG (Ruffnut) has become one of the most sought after talents in film and television today. Wiig recently earned her first Emmy nomination as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her incredible work playing such memorable characters as the excitable Target Clerk, the hilarious one-upper Penelope, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Suze Orman, among others.

Wiig's upcoming films include the following: "MacGruber,” in which she stars opposite fellow "SNL” cast member Will Forte and Ryan Phillippe; Greg Mottola's "Paul,” co-starring Simon Pegg; and her first purely dramatic role opposite Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella in Andrew Jarecki's "All Good Things.” She also contributes voice work in two upcoming animated feature films, DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon” with Gerard Butler and Jay Baruchel and Universal's "Despicable Me” with Steve Carell and Jason Segel.

Wiig made her big screen debut to universal high praise as Katherine Heigl's passive-aggressive boss in Judd Apatow's smash-hit comedy "Knocked Up.” Her additional film credits include Mike Judge's "Extract” with Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck and Mila Kunis; "Whip It!,” Drew Barrymore's directorial debut, starring Ellen Page; Greg Mottola's "Adventureland” with Ryan Reynolds, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg; David Koepp's "Ghost Town” with Ricky Gervais; and Jake Kasdan's "Walk Hard,” another Apatow-produced film in which she starred opposite John C. Reilly. A native of Rochester, New York, Wiig worked as a main company member of the Los Angeles-based improv/sketch comedy troupe The Groundlings. She joins the ranks of "SNL” castmates Maya Rudolph, Will Ferrell, Phil Hartman and Jon Lovitz, also Groundlings alumni. Wiig lives in New York City.
