Jennifer Tilly

Jennifer Tilly received an Academy Award nomination for her role in Woody Allen’s “Bullets Over Broadway” for her memorable portrayal of the terribly untalented Olive, actress wannabe, and gangster’s moll.

Her performance in “Liar Liar” as Jim Carrey’s gold digging client earned her an American Comedy Award nomination, as well as a Blockbuster award nomination as Favorite Supporting Actress.

But she is perhaps best known from the indie noir film “Bound”, which has earned her a cult following and garnered many accolades including a GLAAD media award, and a Saturn award nomination (Best Actress) for Tilly.

Other Films include “The Getaway,” “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” “Let it Ride,” “The Cat’s Meow,” “Tidelands,” “Bride of Chucky”, “Made in America,” “The Wrong Guy,” “Monster’s Inc.,” and many more.

She received a TheatreWorld Award for her performance in “One Shoe Off” at the Joe Papp theatre, and played Crystal Allen in the Roundabout’s revival of "The Women" on Broadway. In 2012, she returned to the Roundabout to star in “Don’t Dress for Dinner, which garnered her a nomination as “Favorite Funny Performance” in the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards.

Recently she appeared with Miranda Richardson in the critically acclaimed production of Wallace Shawn's new play "Grasses of a Thousand Colors" at the Royal Court Theatre in London. This fall (2013) the play will have its first American premiere at the Joseph Papp theatre. The play will be directed again by the legendary Andre Gregory, and will also star Wallace Shawn, and Julie Hagerty.

These days Jennifer is dividing her career between acting and poker. In 2005 she astounded the Poker world when she bested a field of over 600 women to win the coveted gold bracelet at The World Series of Poker. She followed that up by capturing a WPT title, winning Ladies Night 3.

Watch for her this September in the new film “The Secret Lives of Dorks,” co-starring Jim Belushi, and of course you can always catch up with her on “Family Guy,” playing the perpetually pregnant Bonnie.
