ALL GOOD THINGS

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

Wiig's upcoming films include the following: Andrew Jarecki's All Good Things opposite Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella; Greg Mottola's Paul, co-starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost; and Bridesmaids, which she co-wrote with Annie Mumolo and will star in for director Paul Feig. She recently contributed her voice to Universal's animated feature film Despicable Me, also featuring Steve Carell and Jason Segal, which is currently in theaters. She was also recently seen in Macgruber, based on the popular "Saturday Night Live” sketch, opposite fellow SNL cast member Will Forte, as well as Ryan Phillippe.

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 the following: Dreamworks Animation's How To Train Your Dragon with Gerard Butler and Jay Baruchel; 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 Keopp's Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais; and Jake Kasdan's Walk Hard, another Apatow-produced film in which she starred opposite John C. Reilly. She has also guest-starred on the Emmy-winning NBC series "30 Rock” and the HBO series "Bored to Death” with Jason Schwartzman and "Flight of the Conchords.”

A native of Rochester, New York, Wiig worked as a Main Company Member of the Los Angeles-based improve/sketch troupe "The Groundlings.” She joins the ranks of SNL cast mates Maya Rudolph, Will Ferrell, Phil Hartman, Will Forte and Jon Lovitz, also Groundlings alumni.

Wiig currently resides in New York City.
