Biography

Playing lanky, clumsy and unforgettable characters who often stole scene after scene from her A-list co-stars, Judy Greer turned attractive awkwardness into an art form. The minute the actress stepped foot on camera, she exuded a natural comedic flair in films such as "What Women Want" (2000) with Mel Gibson, "The Wedding Planner" (2001) with Jennifer Lopez, and "13 Going on 30" (2004) with Jennifer Garner. Greer also thrived on the small screen with hit shows like "Arrested Development" (Fox, 2003-06) and "Californication" (Showtime, 2007- ). She widened her horizons with the supernatural thriller "The Village" (2004) and Wes Craven's horror flick "Cursed" (2005), before returning to more comedic roles in "American Dreamz" (2006) and "The Amateurs" (2006). By the time she joined the cast of animated hit "Archer" (FX 2009- ) and co-starred opposite George Clooney in "The Descendants" (2011), Greer was firmly established as a top character actress capable of playing in a variety of genres in film and on television.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I don't like to go into a job thinking how I can stand out, because when you do that - I think I've seen it in acting classes - when you try to steal focus, you just end up looking like an assh*le." -- Spinning Platters, November 18, 2011

.

"I had been wanting to try and learn how to meditate, and I did research on the different types of meditation. TM seemed the easiest, and I liked that it wasn’t religious in any way. So, I did a little research of how to do it, and in the middle of it, I’m traveling for work, and I get to this location, and I meet this girl, and she says, "Oh, I had the best day off, I meditated,’ and I was like, "Wait, what do you do to meditate?" She said, "I do Transcendental Meditation." It was one of those things that I had already been hearing a lot about." -- Glamour, May 5, 2014

A spinoff album, Cherlene, featuring her "Archer Vice" character, outlaw country singer Cherlene, was given a digital release in 2014. Greer did not provide the character's singing, which was done by Jessy Lynn Martens.
