Michaela Watkins

A natural talent with an undeniable energy, Michaela Watkins has made her mark through a variety of impressive and unforgettable roles.

Perhaps most memorable is Watkins’ “Valerie Cole”, the lead role in Hulu’s "Casual." Valerie is a newly divorced therapist re-entering the world of casual dating. The show, produced and directed by Jason Reitman, was widely acclaimed, with a Golden Globe nomination and recognition in The Hollywood Reporter, calling it “funny, strongly realized, self- assured and a joy to watch.” Watkins recently starred opposite Walton Goggins in the critically beloved CBS comedy "The Unicorn."

Up next for Watkins is the Hulu limited series "The Dropout" (based on the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos), in which she plays the role of “Linda Tanner,” the Theranos in-house lawyer, opposite Amanda Seyfried.

Other recent notable TV turns for Michaela include playing Rob Delaney’s sister in the final season of "Catastrophe." She also joined the 3rd season of "Search Party," as “Polly Danzinger”, a tightly wound, bravado filled federal prosecutor hell-bent on putting Dory (Alia Shawkat) and Drew (John Reynolds) behind bars. As studio executive “Ali Egan”, Michaela parried opposite Chris O’Dowd for a large 3rd season arc in the EPIX adaptation of the legendary book and film "Get Shorty."

Additionally, she can be seen in the Netflix limited series "Wet Hot American Summer" opposite Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd. Watkins showed incredible range as multiple characters in multiple time periods in the first, second and third season of Amazon’s ground breaking Golden Globe/Emmy winning show, "Transparent."

Other past television credits include starring in ABC’s critical darling, "Trophy Wife." She was a welcome addition to "VEEP," "The Goldbergs," "Enlightened," "Married," "New Girl," "Modern Family," "Childrens Hospital," "The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Key and Peele," "The Kroll Show" and "Drunk History."

In addition to her extensive TV career, Watkins has earned her indie film darling status from her memorable performances in Lake Bell's "In A World...," Joey Soloway’s "Afternoon Delight," "Brigsby Bear," opposite Kyle Mooney and Greg Kinnear and starring opposite Jillian Bell in Amazon’s "Brittany Runs a Marathon," the breakout hit and audience award winner of Sundance 2019.

Watkins also recently slayed in the critically acclaimed IFC films Horror Comedy "Werewolves Within" opposite Sam Richardson and Milana Vayntrub. Up next, Michaela recently wrapped "Paint" starring opposite Owen Wilson. The plot follows Carl Nargle (Wilson), longtime host of Vermont’s #1 painting show until the station hires a younger, better painter who steals everything and everyone Carl loves.

Other recent feature credits include Warner Brothers’ "The Way Out" opposite Ben Affleck as well as stand-out roles in Universal Pictures comedy "Wanderlust" opposite Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd, IBIZA opposite Gillian Jacobs, Vanessa Bayer and Phoebe Robinson and "The House" opposite Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler and Jason Mantzoukis.

In Los Angeles, Watkins grew comedy roots in the fertile soil of Groundlings Theater main stage company. Michaela followed in the footsteps of many distinguished alums, joining the "SNL" cast in the 2008/09 season. She made her mark with spot-on impressions of Arianna Huffington, Barbara Walters, Joan Rivers, Julia Louis Dreyfus and Hoda Kotb while also creating original characters like “Angie Tempura” whose “Bitch, Pleazzzze” catch phrase immediately struck a chord on the iconic, late night sketch show.

Never content to simply participate, Watkins, along with fellow Groundling Damon Jones, created, wrote and executive produced the USA Network comedy series "Benched." Starring Eliza Coupe, the show was produced alongside Andrea Shay and Mark Gordon and explored the inequity of the criminal justice system through a comedic lens.

Born in Syracuse, N.Y., and raised in Boston, Watkins pursued a career in regional theater before moving to Los Angeles. She studied acting and theater, and received her B.F.A. from Boston University.
