A comedic star born from the Saturday Night Live stage, KRISTEN WIIG (Vicki St. Elmo) has become one of the most sought-after talents in film and television today. Wiig recently earned her first Emmy nomination for 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 Greg Mottola's Paul, co-starring Simon Pegg, and her first dramatic role, Andrew Jarecki's All Good Things, opposite Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella. She also contributed her voice to the recently released animated feature film How to Train Your Dragon, starring Gerard Butler and Jay Baruchel for DreamWorks Animation, and the upcoming film Despicable Me, starring Steve Carell and Jason Segel for Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures.
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; Drew Barrymore's directorial debut Whip It, 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: The Dewey Cox Story, 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. As a Groundlings alumna, she joins the ranks of such SNL cast mates as Maya Rudolph, Will Ferrell, Phil Hartman and Jon Lovitz.
Wiig lives in New York City.
