Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A talented actress with a knack for witty, barbed humor, Lizzy Caplan impressed in a wide array of film and television roles. Early work included a recurring character on the Judd Apatow-produced cult series "Freaks and Geeks" (NBC, 1999-2000), followed by a starring turn on the comedic drama "Everybody's Doing It" (MTV, 2002). She garnered substantial attention as the sharp-tongued misfit in the Tina Fey-scripted comedy feature "Mean Girls" (2004). Although attempts at regular series work in projects like the short-lived sitcom "The Class" (CBS, 2006-07) failed to bear fruit, appearances in mainstream films like "Cloverfield" (2008) kept her in demand. Continuing to shine in comedy, Caplan lent her razor-sharp wit to characters in a variety of well-received projects, including the cable series "Party Down" (Starz, 2009-2010), the raucous sci-fi comedy, "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010) and the girls-gone-bad comedy "Bachelorette" (2012). Attractive and funny, but also highly adept with darker material, Caplan continued to expand her range and repertoire in ensemble pieces both large and small.
