Biography

Gillian Jacobs always had the makings of a star. The classically trained actress first impressed with her gripping portrayal of an assault victim in an off-Broadway production of "Cagelove" (2006), before making a smooth transition into film and television, where she guest starred on numerous hit dramas like "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC, 2001- ) and "The Good Wife" (CBS, 2009- ). Gifted with a natural flair for comedy, Jacobs landed a plum role on the popular NBC series "Community" (NBC, 2009- ), as a beautiful, idealistic coed who was always one step ahead of Joel McHale's unctuous lawyer character. Not only did the top-rated series highlight Jacobs' lighthearted side, but it also paved the way for even bigger roles to follow.
