In her ten years as an actress, she has made more than thirty films, ranging from such independent classics as "Dazed and Confused," "Party Girl," and "The House of Yes," to big budget fare like "You've Got Mail," "Scream 3" and "Josie & the P-u-s-s-ycats." She's also a member of Christopher Guest's stock company, playing prominent parts in his cult hits, "Waiting for Guffman" and "Best in Show."
