Biography

Hilarious and high-spirited aptly described one of Hollywood's more endearing starlets, Eliza Coupe. The blonde-haired beauty first gained widespread notoriety for her portrayal of the mega-driven Denise "Jo" Mahoney on the hit medical comedy series "Scrubs" (ABC, 2001-2010). The actress-comedienne continued to pop up on the silver screen and on numerous popular television shows, including the film "I Think I Love My Wife" (2007), the HBO series "12 Miles of Bad Road" (2008) and the movie "Somewhere" (2010). It was her next project that put her on the map. Coupe and her fellow cast mates from the hit comedy series "Happy Endings" (ABC, 2011-13) created a huge buzz with audiences and critics following the show's 2011 premiere. As Jane Williams, Coupe played one of the close friends and a wife on this updated version of the popular comedy series, "Friends" (NBC, 1994-2004). Although über-motivated Jane's happy ending involved having two high-brow children who grow up to become world leaders. It was harder to determine what Coupe's own happy ending would be, but based on her comedic skills and track record as a dependable, engaging ensemble player, Coupe's future in Hollywood seemed limitless.
