Felicity Huffman spent her youth living across America, as she was born in New York, raised in Colorado, and studied all across the northeast. In the early 1980s, she settled down in New York City and began to act on Broadway, making her debut in the David Mamet play "Speed the Plow" in 1988. The same year, she also appeared in Mamet's film "Things Change" (1988), beginning her crossover to the screen. After a role in the Stephen King mini-series "Golden Years" (CBS 1991), she bounced around various other shows before brushing up against her first of many notable characters as Dana Whitaker in the short-lived but beloved "Sports Night" (ABC 1998-2000). Around the same time, Huffman also married her longtime boyfriend, actor William H. Macy, and after "Sports Night" ended, she gave birth to their first child. After a brief appearance on late-era "Frasier" (NBC 1993-2004) and a role in "Magnolia" (1999), she returned to leading prominence as Lynette Scavo in "Desperate Housewives" (ABC 2004-2012), notching a slew of award nominations and wins in the process. At the same time, she also starred in the critically acclaimed "Transamerica" (2005), which earned her an Oscar nomination. Her next major role was on legal drama "American Crime" (ABC 2015-17), resulting in more award nominations. While Huffman was poised to have another strong year in 2019 with the film "Otherhood" (2019) and mini-series "When They See Us" (Netflix 2019), she pled guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud as part of the 2019 college admissions scandal that also involved actress Lori Loughlin. Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison, plus a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year of supervised release.
