FRIENDS WITH KIDS

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 third 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 most recently starred in Universal's breakout hit BRIDESMAIDS, which she cowrote with Annie Mumolo. BRIDESMAIDS was directed by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, Clayton Townsend and Barry Mendel. Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.

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: Universals' PAUL, directed by Greg Mottola and co-starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost; Andrew Jarecki's ALL GOOD THINGS opposite Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella; Universal's animated feature film DESPICABLE ME with Steve Carell and Jason Segal; Universal's MACGRUBER, based on the popular "Saturday Night Live" sketch; 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 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. 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."
