THE WATCH

ROSEMARIE DEWITT (Abby Troutwig) is an accomplished actress, receiving critical praise for her arresting performances on film, stage and television. She rose to prominence with her portrayal of the beleaguered title character, opposite Anne Hathaway, in the acclaimed indie film "Rachel Getting Married,” directed by Jonathan Demme. DeWitt's turn as Rachel amassed accolades and numerous awards nominations for best supporting actress.

DeWitt's breakthrough film role came as a result of her genealogical heritage as the great granddaughter of boxer James. J. Braddock, the protagonist of Ron Howard's biopic "Cinderella Man” starring Russell Crowe and Renée Zellweger. DeWitt would follow this serendipitous success with solid performances in a succession of films, including "Shut up and Sing,” "Off the Black,” "Afterschool,” "Tenure,” "How I Got Lost,” "A Little Bit of Heaven,” "Your Sister's Sister,” opposite Emily Blunt, and the Kenneth Lonergan directed, "Margaret,” with Anna Paquin, Matt Damon and Mark Ruffalo.

In 2010, DeWitt appeared in the John Wells helmed "The Company Men” as part of a stellar ensemble cast including Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Chris Cooper and Tommy Lee Jones. The film presents an inside view of the staggering aftermath of corporate downsizing as an American family struggles to rise from the debilitating and dehumanizing ashes.

DeWitt's most recent film endeavors include "Nobody Walks,” winner of the Sundance Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Independent Film Producing, starring Olivia Thirlby and John Krasinski; "The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” alongside Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton and Dianne Wiest; and the Gus Van Sant directed "Promised Land,” written by and featuring Matt Damon and John Krasinski, also starring Francis McDormand.

In addition to DeWitt's impressive cinematic achievements, she has been a phenomenon on the small screen, creating indelible characters in two of television's most critically acclaimed and groundbreaking original series – "Mad Men” and "The United States of Tara.” In the former, DeWitt mesmerized in a seven episode arc as Don Draper's free-spirited mistress, Midge Daniels; in the latter, DeWitt gives an incisively exquisite performance as Tara's sister, the marginalized and misunderstood Charmaine Craine. DeWitt's other television credits include the FOX series "Standoff,” as well as guest appearances in "Rescue Me,” "Sex and the City” and "Law and Order: SVU.”

On the theatrical stage, DeWitt's versatile talent continues to shine delivering one exquisitely rendered performance after another in numerous Off Broadway plays including John Patrick Shanley's "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea,” George S. Kaufman's "The Butter and Egg Man,” Craig Lucas' Obie® Award-winning "Small Tragedy” and recently, Jonathan Demme's "Family Week.”
