Kathryn Hahn

Kathryn Hahn

Equally adept at playing disarmingly sweet and comically ferocious, Kathryn Hahn found a national audience early in her career as the darling of the forensic procedural drama "Crossing Jordan" (2001-07). An NBC executive spotted the Cleveland-raised Hahn doing regional theater and vaulted her in due course to the role of big-hearted Lily Lebowski on "Jordan," whom she would play over six seasons and some soapy story arcs. Meanwhile, she found a character niche in feature films, playing devoted BFFs to female leads in by-the-numbers romantic comedies like "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" (2003) and "A Lot Like Love" (2005), as well as gave aggressively ribald turns in "Step Brothers" (2008) and "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" (2009). She became a frequent support player to Paul Rudd, with the pair co-starring in four films, including "Our Idiot Brother" (2011) and "Wanderlust" (2012). Hahn took her talents to Broadway in 2008 in the hit revival of the French farce "Boeing-Boeing." She undertook some big-ticket comedy projects in the 2011-12 television season, landing the lead in NBC's ill-fated "Free Agents" (2011) and, upon its cancellation, reuniting with Rudd again as his delightfully mercenary campaign advisor on the network's "Parks and Recreation" (NBC, 2009-15). Wielding a seemingly innate capacity to steal scenes from bigger stars, Hahn made herself a versatile talent producers pine for, while perhaps logging more screen-time as a pregnant woman than any other actor.
