Recently I wondered where the great comedic parts were for all the great comedic ladies in Hollywood, and many of you said you'd love to see more of the hilarious Kristen Wiig. A regular on "Saturday Night Live," Wiig was also seen in Knocked Up playing Alison's (Katherine Heigl) catty and insecure coworker. Now she has a couple more opportunities to do her hilarious thing.
In Ghost Town, Wiig will star opposite Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear. She'll play "the surgeon of Gervais' character in the David Koepp-directed comedy, which centers on a dentist (Gervais) who has a near-death experience during routine surgery and gains the ability to see dead people who ask him for help in contacting the living."
Then she'll go on to play the female lead in Pretty Bird, an indie comedy that also stars Billy Crudup and Paul Giamatti. Soon, however, we can find her in The Brothers Solomon this September, and this December's Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (which also has Jenna Fischer!). I'm glad we don't have to wait too long to see this funny lady in more roles.
