Kristen Wiig is the #86 woman of 2010 (AskMen.com)
is regularly compared to Lily Tomlin by SNL creator Lorne Michaels
introduced the characters Penelope, the manic Target cashier and the easily irritated film critic Aunt Linda to SNL audiences
got her start with the L.A.-based famed improv group The Groundlings
got a call from Lorne Michaels' people after the comedy star-maker saw a tape of Wiig with her improv group
in 2010, will star in four A-list films: All Good Things, Paul, Date Night, and ### Backwards
Why she's on the list:
Not many female members of the legendary sketch comedy show have gone on to have successful careers outside of SNL. In fact, someone who oddly resembled Cheri Oteri delivered us a pizza just last week. But when Kristen Wiig joined the cast in 2005, her female costars Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph were beginning to move beyond the walls of 30 Rockefeller, on their way to changing the comedic landscape in America.
Not to be outdone by her peers, Kristen Wiig quickly introduced her set of now iconic characters -- Penelope, the manic Target cashier and the easily irritated film critic Aunt Linda -- to go along with spot-on impressions of house speaker Nancy Pelosi and financial advisor Suze Orman. These days, next to Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig is the most buzzworthy cast member, appearing in almost every skit on any given episode. This must be the "girl power" thing that Geri Halliwell used to yammer on about.
With roles in Drew Barrymore's directorial debut, the roller derby comedy Whip It! and Mike Judge's Extract in 2009, Wiig proved she can hold her own on the big screen too. She’s set to star in her first dramatic role opposite Kirsten Dunst and Ryan Gosling in All Good Things in 2010, as well as the comedy Paul opposite Seth Rogen, Date Night with an all-star cast that includes Tina Fey, MacGruber with Val Kilmer and Maya Rudolph, and A## Backwards with David Cross, Amy Sedaris and Kate Hudson.
