Ann Cusack stars in "Mr. Mercedes" on Audience Network as Olivia Trelawney.

Ann Cusack has carved out an acting career marked by diversity. She can go from playing a district attorney in "The Informant" to an alcoholic mother looking for her son in CBS's "Criminal Minds" to a ordinary housewife in "Brotherhood of Poland New Hampshire." She moves easily from one medium to the next.

Born in Manhattan, New York, but raised in Evanston, Illinois, Cusack started training in improvisation and story theater with Joyce and the late Bryne Piven at the age of nine years old. She received her Bachelor's of Fine Arts from New York University TIsch School of the Arts. Her big "break" came when Penny Marshall cast her in the feature film "A League of Their Own" as the illiterate ball player Shirley Baker. Cusack hasn't stopped working since.

Cusack has been seen in films such as "Sully," starring Tom Hanks, "Nightcrawler," starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Soderbergh's "The Informant!," starring Matt Damon, "Sensation of Sight" as David Straighten's wife, "Accepted," "What Planet Are You From?" and "Multiplicty," as well as HBO's critically acclaimed miniseries "Earth to the Moon" as Jan Armstrong. She has shared the screen with her siblings John Cusack and Joan Cusack in such films as "Grosse Pointe Blank," "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and "America's."

Televisions credits range from lead, series regulars and guest arcs on show such as "Grimm," "Better Call Saul," "Castle," "Fargo," "Backstrom," "Masters of Sex," "Scandal," "Hart of Dixie," "Body of Proof," "Private Practice," "Harry's Law," "The Unit," "Grey's Anatomy," "In Plain Sight," "Brothers and Sisters," "Little Britain," "Army Wives," "Boston Legal," "Ghost Whisperer," "Bones," "Six Feet Under," "One Tree Hill," "The Jeff Foxworthy Show," and "The Brotherhood of Poland New Hampshire." She carried the show "Maggie" for Lifetime.
