Director's Profile

Judy Greer consistently captivates both critics and audiences with her engaging performances. She is one of the most prolific actresses of her time, appearing in 90 roles across film and television to date.

2018 will mark Greer’s directorial debut with A Happening of Monumental Proportions. The film is set to open August 24th and stars, among others, Allison Janney, Common, Bradley Whitford, Jennifer Garner, John Cho, and Katie Holmes. The film centers over the course of Career Day when an unassuming elementary school is thrown into turmoil when a dead body is discovered.

She can next be seen in Adventures in Public School alongside Grace Park and Russell Peters. The film premiered at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival and follows a socially awkward home-school kid who forces his way into public school, getting a crash course from his mother (Greer) in sex, drugs, and social mayhem. Greer can also be seen in the upcoming Halloween franchise film as Karen, the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’s Laurie Strode and opposite Cate Blanchett and Kirsten Wiig in Where’d You Go, Bernadette.

On television, Greer will begin production on Showtime’s new series Kidding opposite Jim Carrey, Frank Langella, and Catherine Keener. Carrey will star as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television and Greer will play his estranged wife, Jill, who has recently hit a rebellious streak. Greer will return for season 9 of FX’s animated hit series Archer, on which she voices the role of Cheryl.
