Rachael Harris


Although this perpetually bespectacled deadpan funny lady has appeared in a slew of cutting-edge comic series (Reno 911!, The Sarah Silverman Program), Harris is best recognized for her high-profile commercial gigs, including ads for GEICO, AVIS and T-Mobile. A former performer and teacher for Los Angeles' famed Groundlings improv troupe, she did TV guest spots and a stint as a Daily Show correspondent before landing her breakout role as the title character's makeup artist cum confidante on Fat Actress. Having found her niche as a wisecracking best bud, she played a similar part on the sitcom Notes from the Underbelly as a pregnant wife's anti-spawning friend. Well-known and well-liked in the comedy community, Harris has also landed dry-witted roles in big-screen laughers, including Will Ferrell's Kicking & Screaming, Eddie Murphy's Daddy Day Care and a string of improvised Christopher Guest flicks. After playing Ed Helms' overbearing girlfriend in 2009's The Hangover, Harris took on a role that played against type when she portrayed the mom in 2010's family film Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

linda-cardellini-1024x768-24587

Linda Cardellini

Linda Cardellini was born on June 25, 1975 in Redwood City, California. Through her exposure on the critically adored NBC series Freaks and Geeks, Linda Cardellini was singled out by dozens of major publications as one of the most extraordinary young actors in Hollywood, with good reason. As early as age 10, when she was first asked to sing in a school play, Cardellini knew what her future would be.

She immersed herself in school productions and drama classes, getting her big break with a starring role in the television series Bone Chillers. She has also appeared in the films Dead Man on Campus, with Tom Everett Scott and Good Burger.

After breaking into the scene in Freaks and Geeks in the fall of 1999, she starred that season in American Movie Classics' original four-part dramedy The Lot, set in a film studio during the 1930's. The multi-plot story revolved around her character, June Parker, an innocent young Midwesterner who goes to Hollywood to become a star. When AMC opted to continue the multi-part series, Linda re-joined her original castmates for several guest-star appearances, winning repeat rave reviews each time.

Since finishing the series, Linda has worked non-stop in both feature films and theatre. She recently starred in The Unsaid, opposite Andy Garcia and was seen in 2001's Legally Blonde, with Reese Witherspoon. Of course, the role that might be considered her breakthrough is that of Velma Dinkey in the film adaptation of Scooby-Doo. She is due to reprise the character in the 2004 sequel. Meanwhile, she will also appear in Lollilove and La La Wood, with Martin Short.

Linda is also genuinely committed to her first love, theater. She has performed in Europe, starring in the Dutch tragedy Lancelot, a 14th century secular feminist play and only recently translated into English and also appeared in the West Coast premiere of Adam Rapp's award-winning Ghosts in the Cottonwoods.

In 1999 he landed a non-speaking role in 200 Cigarettes, and went on to act in Ethan Hawke's directorial debut Chelsea Walls and Just One Time, where as secondary characters he and Jennifer Esposito provided what little "comic spark" existed in the film.[1] Díaz played Guillermo García Gómez, a drug dealer/trafficker, in seasons 3-6 of Showtime's Weeds.

Efren Ramirez

Since his breakthrough performance as PEDRO in NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, Efren Ramirez has established himself within the Film and Television industry, working nonstop in numerous projects being released over the coming months.

Ramirez has been acting for over thirteen years, playing diverse roles in many television shows including ER, JUDGING AMY, THE DISTRICT, BOSTON PUBLIC, MAD TV, and SCRUBS. However, it was his iconic portrayal of PEDRO that has made him an international superstar. Pictures of Ramirez in character can be found on T-shirts being worn by people of all ages everywhere around the world. Simply by appearing at events on college campuses ensures that thousands of students will converge for a glimpse of their hero.

Moving on from PEDRO has been effortless for this gifted young actor. He soon followed NAPOLEON DYNAMITE appearing in the HBO film, WALKOUT with Edward James, Michael Pena, and Alexa Vega. In this gripping drama, Ramirez plays Bobby Verdugo, a Chicano student from East LA who struggles for better education in public schools throughout the Chicano movement in 1968.

After completing the High School Volleyball Team rivalry, ALL YOU GOT with Faizone Love and Ciara Harris, Efren starred in the back-to-back Lions Gate films, EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH with Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson and CRANK starring opposite Jason Statham and Amy Smart. In this film, Ramirez plays a transvestite, which may be a bit of a surprise for PEDRO fans.

Efren then starred in RATKO as a foreign dictator’s son who travels to the U.S. to attend college and AMERICAN SUMMER as a poolboy who turns an empty mansion into a brothel.

Recently, Efren wrapped filming the 2 person drama, CROSSING THE HEART, starring opposite Kris Kristoferson and due to the success of CRANK, it seemed inevitable that a sequel would be made. Promising to be even more extreme than the original, Efren just wrapped filming CRANK 2 with Jason Statham and  a cameo appearence in GAME with Gerrard Butler.

Collectively his films have grossed over $80 million to date.

Efren Ramirez currently resides in Los Angeles. When he isn't filming, he spends his time practicing his love of spinning records, appearing as a guest DJ in clubs all across the country, and he has just written his first book, “Direct Your Own Life”. He also speaks at high schools and universities across the nation and is involved with several charitable organizations, such as UNICEF, The Red Cross, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and AIDS research.

Abe Benrubi

Abraham Rubin Hercules Benrubi (born October 4, 1969) is an American character actor known for his appearances as Jerry Markovic on the long-running U.S. TV drama ER, for his first role as Francis Lawrence Kubiac III, aka "Larry Kubiac" or "Kube", on the early 1990s seriesParker Lewis Can't Lose and for his voice acting on the Adult Swim claymation series Robot Chicken. With a height of 6'7" and weighing over three hundred pounds, Benrubi is one of the most easily recognizable character actors in Hollywood. Benrubi's first major role was on the show Wings, as Roy "R.J." Biggins, Jr., Roy's gay son. He would appear as R.J. twice: once during the show's second season, and again during the sixth season, shortly after he began working on NBC's ER. Between the first and second seasons of Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Benrubi and co-star Taj Johnson worked as roadies for No Doubt's first tour. Benrubi starred as one of the main characters in ABC's show Men in Trees, playing bartender/millionaire Ben Tomasson. This was a role where he got noticeably more main dialog and depth than with his previous longtime characters on ER and Parker Lewis Can't Lose, which primarily consisted of supporting dialog. Ben Tomasson was described as "the cuddliest TV character since Jorge Garcia's Hurley on Lost" by TV-critic David Bianculli.[2] Other previous work includes playing Mose in the 2003 western Open Range, a role the actor won because he had been cut out of director Kevin Costner's previous film, The Postman. He frequently voices characters on Adult Swim's stop-motion animation show Robot Chicken, and has also contributed to a second show from Chicken's creators, Titan Maximum. Following the cancellation of Men In Trees in early 2007, Benrubi returned to the cast of ER in late 2008 for the show's final season. Benrubi played a young Dan Conner, the character portrayed by John Goodman, in a flashback episode of Roseanne. Benrubi starred in the short lived (April 2010 to June 2010) ABC show, Happy Town where he played the part of Big Dave Duncan. Almost right after the series's cancellation was announced he appeared in a new show Memphis Beat, where he plays the part of police Sgt. Jody "JC" Lightfoot, a desk sergeant that is 1/16 Chickasaw by a distant relative, but chooses to embrace Native American culture all the same.[3] Benrubi is currently working on an independant film called "To Kill a Memory". In May 2011 it was announced that he would star in Glutton, a "3D psychological thriller" directed by David Arquette. Benrubi will play Jethro, a 1,200-pound man, forced to save his sister's life. Jethro's sister is played by Patricia Arquette, while Kacey Barnfield also stars as his blind neighbour and only friend.
