Maya Rudolph

Maya Rudolph is currently in her seventh season on Saturday Night Live on which she received early acclaim for her over-the-top portrayal of Donatella Versace. She has since created many memorable characters, such as the vaguely European home design enthusiast Nooni opposite Fred Armisen and Britannica, half of the pop group Gemini's Twin with Ana Gasteyer. In addition to her Versace, other impressions have included Halle Berry, Liza Minnelli, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé (in The Prince Show), Whitney Houston and Oprah Winfrey.

Rudolph joined SNL from the Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles, where SNL alums Laraine Newman, Phil Hartman and Jon Lovitz, as well as former SNL cast mates Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer and Chris Kattan also performed.

Rudolph was recently seen in Mike Judge's comedy Idiocracy with Luke Wilson and in Robert Altman's film version of Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion opposite Meryl Streep. Other film credits include Duplex with Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore, Anchorman, Chuck & Buck and Duets.

Rudolph resides in Los Angeles and New York.
