Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Actress-comedian-writer Casey Wilson rightfully earned her reputation as an up-and-coming talent with her screenwriting credits, work on stage, and as the star of a popular television sitcom. Emerging from the ranks of the acclaimed Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Wilson's comedic chops soon garnered the attention of executive producer Lorne Michaels, who signed her on to the cast of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) in 2008.

Pushing forward on a number of fronts, Wilson co-wrote the wedding comedy "Bride Wars" (2009), in addition to contributing stories to the humor anthology book Worst Laid Plans. Small appearances in the feature films "Julie & Julia" (2009) and "Killers" (2010) paved the way for the biggest role of her career as one of the stars of the popular sitcom "Happy Endings," (ABC, 2011-13). As the unlucky-in-love, yet always upbeat Penny, Wilson received the lion's share of accolades heaped upon the show's promising young ensemble cast. Ambitious, multi-talented and fearless as a performer, Wilson was sure to enjoy a lengthy career as both a writer and...
