Updated Acting Reel!

It’s so nice to have a great reason to update my acting highlights reel! Check it out here:

Watch "Batsh*t Valley Parts 1 and 2" on IFC.COM now!

Written by Seth Meyers, this two-part season premiere episode of “Documentary Now!” spoofs the Netflix documentary “Wild Wild Country.” It will be broadcast on IFC on Feb 20, but for a limited time you can watch it online free HERE.

I play Marge Middleton, mayor of the tiny Oregon town taken over by the cult (led by Ra-Shawbard, played by Owen Wilson). The episodes also star the hilarious Michael Keaton and Necar Zedegan. Great cast and crew, and so much fun to shoot. Kudos to the makeup and hair wizards — every prosthetic waddle and sprayed-on age spot made Marge who she is!!

Watch the show online today!

The New York Times Critics pick "Documentary Now"

The New York Times Critics wrote about the 10 things they’re looking forward to the most in 2019, and I’m in one of them!

Look for me in the Season Premiere of IFC’s “Documentary Now” on February 20, when I’m starring in “Batsh!t Valley,” a two-episode spoof of Netflix’s “Wild Wild Country.” Seth Meyers wrote the hilarious episodes, which feature Michael Keaton, Owen Wilson, Necar Zedegan, and Gary Kraus, too.

So you have time to go watch the actual documentary, but you certainly won’t have to have seen it in order to enjoy our take on it. Set your recorders for Feb 20, and check out IFC.com to stream them after that!

Performing in Moving Arts Theater Company Holiday Fundraiser!

Come support local theater and see me perform a ten-minute two-hander with the talented Mark Taylor at the Moving Arts Holiday Party/Fundraiser on December 15. We’ll be performing “Yuletime” by Lee Wochner, a moving short piece about a couple finding their way through tragedy during the holiday.

Every year Moving Arts has a holiday fundraising event at the home of one of their Board members. There will be food, drink, auction items, and site-specific plays. Moving Arts will be showing its unique form of storytelling by presenting five plays in different areas around a very nicely appointed house, nestled in the Hollywood Hills.

It all starts at 6:00 p.m. on Sat, Dec 15. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here. Hope to see you there!

Soon you’ll be seeing me in “Documentary Now!”, the brilliant IFC show that parodies classic documentaries. I’m featured in next season’s two-episode spoof of “Wild Wild Country” which was written by Seth Meyers and stars Michael Keaton, Owen Wilson, and Necar Zadegan. Exact air date TBD but check back for more info and behind-the-scenes pictures!

So thrilled that I’ve been able to part of all three seasons of this amazingly creative show, directed by Alex Buono and Rhys Thomas. Check me out in Season 1’s “The Eye Doesn’t Lie” (which spoofs “The Thin Blue Line”) and season 2’s “Parker Gail’s Location is Everything” (which spoofs Spaulding Gray’s “Swimming to Cambodia”), both available online.

On Upcoming Episode of Amazon's "BOSCH"

Check out Season 4 Episode 6 of "Bosch," the smart cop drama available on Amazon. I play Lee Russo, and had a lovely couple of days shooting with the wonderfully talented and warm Madison Lintz.

The new season is available via Amazon April 13. Check it out!

Appearing on FX's "Baskets" Tuesday March 6!

Check your local listings for FX's "Baskets" next week -- I'll be appearing in the "Woman's Conference" episode. SUCH fun working with the generous and kind Louie Anderson. And wonderful to meet Jackie Garcia (playing "Jan") as well as these two talented gentlemen.

You can see the clips on my updated acting reel HERE.

Clearly, it's a very difficult job, but somebody has to do it.
