Biography

With her confident comedic skills and girl-next-door charm, actress Malin Akerman emerged as a strong film player in romantic comedies, beginning with her co-starring role opposite Ben Stiller in the blockbuster "The Heartbreak Kid" (2007). Malin began her career in Canada, where an early start in modeling eventually gave way to a number of television guest appearances in sci-fi and adventure offerings, but her supporting role on HBO's inside-Hollywood comedic series "The Comeback" (HBO, 2005) truly launched her comedy career. From there, Akerman enjoyed supporting roles in the blockbuster "27 Dresses" (2008) and the ensemble romantic comedy "Couples Retreat" (2009), with a butt-kicking role in the dark actioner "Watchmen" (2009) suggesting that Hollywood's up-and-coming funny blonde had a lot more surprises yet in store for moviegoers.

"I don't think I'm one of those crazy, raunchy, 'Hey, motherf*ckers!' types. But you get into character when you get up there – you become a rock star." – Akerman on performing in a band, quoted in Interview magazine, October 2007
