Emily Mortimer stars in "Our Idiot Brother," opposite Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Bank, as Liz. Mortimer also recently provided the voice of Holley Shiftwell in the Disney • Pixar animated film "Cars 2" and starred in Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" as Rachel Solando. Among her upcoming projects are Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" and Aaron Sorkin's new drama for HBO,"More as the Story Develops."

Emily Mortimer's many film credits include her break-out role in the critically-acclaimed "Lovely & Amazing," a comical, bittersweet tale of four hapless, but resilient, women and the lessons they learn in keeping up with the hectic demands of their individual neuroses. The film brought Mortimer great critical acclaim and a 2003 Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress. She has gone on to star in a diverse range of films, including the widely acclaimed, touching comedy "Lars and the Real Girl," opposite Ryan Gosling and Patricia Clarkson; David Mamet's "Redbelt," set in the Westside Los Angeles fight world; Woody Allen's critically well-received "Match Point" alongside Scarlett Johansson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Matthew Goode; and the hit comedy "The Pink Panther," playing Nicole, Inspector Clouseau's hapless secretary, opposite Steve Martin.

Mortimer's other film credits include starring in Shona Auerbach's "Dear Frankie," for which she earned a London Film Critics Award nomination as an impoverished single mother who has moved to a seaside Scottish town with her deaf child; acclaimed filmmaker David Mackenzie's first film, "Young Adam," starring Ewan McGregor, for which she earned a nomination as Best British Actress at the 2004 Empire Awards and a nomination for Best British Actress in a Supporting Role at the 2004 London Film Critics Circle Awards; leading the ensemble cast in Stephen Fry's directorial debut "Bright Young Things"; Kenneth Branagh's "Love's Labour's Lost"; Shekhar Kapur's award-winning "Elizabeth"; "The Ghost and the Darkness" with Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer; "Formula 51" with Robert Carlyle and Samuel L. Jackson; Wes Craven's "Scream 3"; "The Kid" opposite Bruce Willis; and Helmut Schleppi's independent feature "A Foreign Affair" with Tim Blake Nelson and David Arquette. She also voiced the character of young Sophie in Walt Disney Studios' English language version of "Howl's Moving Castle," directed by the renowned Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki.

In addition to her several film projects, Mortimer has also starred in a range of television projects for the BBC and played the recurring role of Phoebe, Alec Baldwin's character's brittle love interest, during the 2007 season of the hit NBC series "30 Rock."

An accomplished stage actress, Mortimer's theater credits include her off-Broadway debut at the Atlantic Theater (February, 2008 - April, 2008) in the World Premiere run of acclaimed playwright Jez Butterworth's "Parlour Song," directed by Neil Pepe. Other theater credits included productions of "The Merchant of Venice" at the Lyceum Theatre and "The Lights" at the Royal Court. While studying English at Oxford University, Mortimer had starring roles in numerous stage productions, including Ophelia in "Hamlet" at Oxford Shakespeare Festival, Gertrude in "Hamlet," Lady Nijo/Winn in "Top Girls" at the Edinburgh Festival, Miss Burstner/Leni in "The Trial" at the Oxford Playhouse, and Helena in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the Old Fire Station, Oxford. She also devised, directed and acted in a production of "Don Juan," which was a Drama Cupper's Winner.

In November 2007, Mortimer was invited by Eric Idle (Monty Python) to take part in his tryout run of his new play "What About Dick?" for two public performances at the Ricardo Montalban Theater. The stellar cast included Billy Connolly, Tim Curry, Eric Idle, Eddie Izzard, Jane Leeves, Jim Piddock and Tracey Ullman. Subtitled "A Film for Radio," Idle's work-in-progress comedy involved the eight actors gathered together on stage to perform a classic radio drama, "What About Dick?," at the original Lux Radio Theater in 1948.

Mortimer was born in London, England. She is the daughter of famed writer Sir John Mortimer and Penelope Glossop. Mortimer attended the highly respected St. Paul's Girls School in Barnes, London. She then studied English and Russian at Oxford University from 1990 to 1994. She married actor Alessandro Nivola in 2002, and their first child was born in 2003.
