An Evening with Judy Greer

An Evening with Judy Greer

USA, 90 Minute Running Time

The nimble comedienne Judy Greer may still be best known for her four seasons as Kitty Sanchez on TV's Arrested Development. But for 13 years, she's been one of the hardest-working women in show business, as befits her upbringing in blue-collar Detroit.

Greer was Jennifer Lopez's ditzy best friend in The Wedding Planner, Jennifer Garner's foil in 13 Going on 30, and the file clerk whose thoughts Mel Gibson channeled while learning What Women Want. She fueled Nicolas Cage's desire in Adaptation, went to bed with George Clooney in the opening scene of Three Kings, and hooked up with Jeff Bridges and Jeanne Tripplehorn in The Amateurs as they shot a disastrous homemade porn flick. In M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village, she joined Joaquin Phoenix, Adrian Brody, and Sigourney Weaver in a battle against some very scary creatures lurking in the woods. And her latest films, Jeff Who Lives at Home and The Descendants will screen at SDFF34.

Those are just highlights. Since 1998, Greer has appeared in 39 movies—stealing scenes at every turn from some of Hollywood's biggest stars—and has become one of the most familiar faces on TV. Tune in to The Big Bang Theory, ER, Modern Family, or House, and you're likely to glimpse those startling gray eyes and that willowy, 5-foot-10 frame. In 2007, she graced two episodes of Two and a Half Men as Charlie Sheen's love interest. This season, she's busy breaking Ashton Kutcher's heart on the recast version of the show.


All in all, not bad for a former classical ballet student who followed her graduation from DePaul University's theater school with stints as a telemarketer and an oyster shucker. So what's next? “Comedy certainly comes easier to me,” the actress recently said. “But I've had a lot more life experience now, and I feel I have a lot more to offer in dramatic roles.” We don’t doubt it for a moment.

—BILL GALLO
