A natural talent with an engaging presence and undeniable energy, Kathryn Hahn has made her mark through a variety of entertaining and memorable roles.
Most recently, Hahn appeared 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. His three sisters (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer) each take a turn at housing Ned.
