Bio

Busy Philipps is an American actress best known for her starring role as Laurie Keller in the television sitcom Cougar Town.

She is also known for her starring role in the 2002 film Home Room, for her supporting role in the 2004 Wayans brothers film White Chicks, and on the TV series' Freaks and Geeks and Dawson's Creek.

She appeared on the UPN sitcom Love, Inc., in a role originally intended for Shannen Doherty. The show lasted for one season (2005-2006) before being canceled.

From 2006-2007 she had a major recurring role as Hope on ER.

Born in Oak Park, Illinois and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Philipps has known she wanted to act for as long as she can remember. At 18 she moved to Los Angeles to attend Loyola Marymount University and pursue acting as a career.

With her performance as tough but sympathetic rebel teen Kim Kelly in the critically praised series Freaks and Geeks, from Judd Apatow and Paul Feig, Philipps crafted one of the most compelling young characters in contemporary television.

She went on to play roles in such features as Anatomy of a Hate Crime, The Smokers and Home Room.

After roles on Dawson's Creek and Undeclared, in 2004 she took a lead in the Shawn and Marlon Wayans comedy, White Chicks. In 2006 she starred in the UPN sitcom Love, Inc., from Friends showrunner Adam Chase.

Next, she joined the cast of ER for one season as the devout Christian med-student, Hope Bobeck. She has been seen in standout roles in the films Made of Honor and He’s Just Not That Into You.

While eight months pregnant with her first child in summer of 2008, she filmed a five episode arc on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Philipps was married to screenwriter Marc Silverstein in June 2007 in a surprise ceremony. Friends and family were shocked when, thinking they’d been invited to a birthday party, Philipps showed up in a wedding dress and the couple married on the spot.
