Biography

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. But frustrated by her third-wheel status behind fellow female castmates Gilda Radner and Jane Curtin, and suffering from both eating disorders and heroin addiction, 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 and failed to achieve the same level of superstardom as her male counterparts from "SNL." 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). While she may not have been a household name to a later generation, Newman nonetheless managed to forge a successful career both on and off the screen decades after he glory years from studio 8H.
