Kathryn Hahn stars as Helen, a smart and newly single 30-something public relations professional, in the NBC comedy "Free Agents."
A natural talent with an engaging presence and undeniable energy, Hahn has made her mark through a variety of entertaining and memorable roles.
This summer, Hahn will be seen co-starring in Jesse Peretz's "Our Idiot Brother." The film revolves around Ned (Paul Rudd), who is an idealist and just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together. Ned's three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer) each take a turn at housing him. As it turns out, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. Hahn portrays Janet, Ned's ex-girlfriend, who, out of spite, is keeping him from reuniting with his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. The Weinstein Company is slated to release the film August 26, 2011.
Next, Hahn will be seen in David Wain's "Wanderlust" about an urban couple, George (Paul Rudd) and Linda (Jennifer Aniston), who branch out to live a more counterculture lifestyle. Hahn plays Karen, an eccentric, damaged mother and a member of a commune, who welcomes George and Linda to the community with typical New Age-y sincerity. Universal Pictures is set to release the film October 7, 2011.
Most recently, Hahn appeared in James L. Brooks' romantic comedy "How Do You Know," where she portrayed Annie, a devoted secretary to George (Paul Rudd). She is not only his employee, but takes care of him in every way.
Hahn made her Broadway debut in the Tony-winning play "Boeing-Boeing" alongside Bradley Whitford, Gina Gershon, Mary McCormack, Christine Baranski and Mark Rylance. "Boeing-Boeing" won the 2008 Tony in the category of Best Revival of a Play.
Hahn's feature film credits include her standout roles in "Step Brothers" and "Revolutionary Road." Additional film credits include "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard," "The Last Mimzy," "The Holiday," "Around the Bend," "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!," "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" and "Flushed."
Her TV credits include her recurring role as Lily Lebowski on the NBC hit show "Crossing Jordan," "Four Kings," and most recently a guest-starring arc on the HBO hit series "Hung."
