Kristen Wiig Lands Two More Comedic Movie Roles

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.

Another vote for the a'holes. I think Kirsten is the best... Her impressions are amazing (her Karen Walker anyone?)and her characters are really individual. I think she blows Amy Pohler away...

She reminds me of Kate Walsh (grey's anatomy) a LOT.

Kirsten is one of the main reasons I watch SNL these days. I love her Penelope character!

I know it's a matter of opinion, but the 2 a'holes skit is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. We quote it all the time.

okay mainly obsessed - i actually do like that skit. it does make me laugh. she still bugs me though. i can't stand the 2 a'holes skit or the target one (but peter sarsgaard was funny in it when he was on). i don't know, i'm just not a fan.

I still think that Tina Fey is the best but I actually really like her at SNL.

I don't agree dmblauren. The Penelope (one-upper) sketch is one of the funniest ones! (Kristen is Penelope)

it's more difficult to watch her in sketches in SNL than maya rudolph, and that's saying something.
