Maya Rudolph

Maya Rudolph joined John Krasinski in 2009's Away We Go, and the low-budget film about an expectant couple struggling to put down roots helped both actors break out of their comedic molds as dramatic coleads. The movie came two years after Rudolph ended her seven-year stint on Saturday Night Live, during which she originated more than a dozen recurring characters, including her memorable takes on real-life public figures like Oprah and Donatella Versace. Rudolph also has another indie drama around the bend; she's starring with Catherine Keener in The Greens Are Gone. That movie is expected to start shooting in the Fall after Rudolph reteams with fellow SNL alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to shoot the sisterhood comedy The Nest. Source: NBC and Focus Features
