Kristen Wiig has starred in "Saturday Night Live" on NBC as one of the repertory players since 2005. She also stars in the feature films "Bridesmaids," alongside Rose Byrne and Jon Hamm, as Annie, and "Paul," alongside Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Jane Lynch and Sigourney Weaver, as Ruth Buggs.

Wiig recently starred in "MacGruber," opposite Will Forte and Ryan Phillipe, and voiced both the characters of Ruffnut in "How to Train Your Dragon," opposite Gerard Butler and Jay Baruchel, and Miss Hattie in "Despicable Me," opposite Steve Carell and Jason Segel.

She recently had her first purely dramatic role opposite Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella in Andrew Jarecki's "All Good Things."

Wiig quickly made her mark on "SNL" with memorable characters such as the excitable Target Clerk, one-half of the condescending and clueless duo "The A-holes," alongside fellow cast member Jason Sudeikis, and the hilarious one-upper Penelope. Wiig has also created "Weekend Update" culture correspondent, the endlessly irritated Aunt Linda, and contributed notable impressions of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Suze Orman, Drew Barrymore, Megan Mullally, Jaime Lee Curtis as well as Judy Garland and Katherine Hepburn. According to the New York Post, "Kristen Wiig has become a household name on 'SNL' by playing outrageous versions of people we've all had the misfortune to encounter." She recently earned her first Emmy nomination as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her incredible work.

A native of Rochester, New York, Wiig comes to "SNL" from the Los Angeles-based improv/sketch comedy troupe "The Groundlings" where castmates Will Forte, Maya Rudolph as well as such distinguished alums as Will Ferrell, Laraine Newman, Phil Hartman and Jon Lovitz began their careers.

On the big screen, Wiig garnered praise for "stealing every scene" (New York Magazine) in Judd Apatow's hit comedy "Knocked Up," as Katherine Heigl's passive-aggressive boss, and also starred opposite Will Arnett and castmate Will Forte in "The Brothers Solomon." Wiig's other features include "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" with John C. Reilly; "Semi Pro" with Will Ferrell; "Adventureland" opposite Ryan Reynolds, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg; "Ghost Town" starring Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear; the indie drama "Pretty Bird" with Paul Giamatti and Billy Crudup; the period mystery "All Good Things" with Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst; Mike Judge's "Extract" with Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck and Mila Kunis; and Drew Barrymore's directorial debut "Whip It!," starring Ellen Page and set in the world of a Texas roller derby.

Wiig lives in New York City.
