Bravo revealed more about the return of this series in a press release. Check that out below.
“Bravo Media’s Emmy Award-winning “Inside the Actors Studio,” hosted by James Lipton welcomes Kristen Wiig on Thursday, December 21 at 8pm ET/PT. In anticipation of her upcoming film Downsizing, Wiig discusses her Hollywood beginning at The Groundlings improv troupe which led to her breakout role as series regular on Saturday Night Live, where she earned five Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. From the small screen to the big screen, Wiig expanded her repertoire to include both comedic and dramatic roles in films such as Mother!, The Martian, Skeleton Twins, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Despicable Me 2, Welcome To Me, Ghostbusters, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, and the upcoming Where’d You Go, Bernadette. In the episode, Wiig recounts her journey to writing, producing and starring in the Oscar nominated film, Bridesmaids, and how she created many of her iconic characters in Saturday Night Live including the ‘Aunt Linda’ and ‘Sue the Surprise Lady.’
Kristen Wiig has become one of the industry’s most versatile actresses of her generation. From her breakout performance on Saturday Night Live to the Oscar nominated film Bridesmaids, Wiig has transitioned from television to film as a writer and producer. In 2012, Time magazine honored Wiig in their esteemed Time 100 issue, and in 2009, Entertainment Weekly acknowledged her as one of the top 15 great performers for her work on Saturday Night Live. Wiig has been nominated for eight Emmy Awards, a SAG Award, and received her first Oscar nomination for writing Bridesmaids. This December, Wiig will star in Alexander Payne’s social satire Downsizing, alongside Matt Damon and Christoph Waltz.”
