Birthday: Mar 2, 1952

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

An accomplished improvisational actor and mime, Laraine Newman helped found the legendary Groundlings comedy troupe before achieving permanent pop culture fame as one of the original Not-Ready-For-Primetime-Players on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) from 1975 to 1980. Newman left the series following its infamously tumultuous fifth season to pursue a film career. Though she had prominent roles in movies like "Coneheads" (1993), "The Flintstones" (1994) and "Jingle All the Way" (1996), Newman was given little room to show her true talents. She kept busy, however, with numerous supporting roles in films and on television, while becoming a much sought-after voiceover artist for big animated films like "Finding Nemo" (2003), "Cars" (2006), "WALL-E" (2007), "Up" (2009) and "Toy Story 3" (2010). Newman nonetheless managed to forge a successful career both on and off the screen decades after the glory years from studio 8H.
