Conchata Ferrell, 64, began her career in off-Broadway theater, and when the play Hot L Baltimore became a TV series in 1975, she was asked to reprise her role. That show didn't last long, but Ferrell went on to numerous other television and movie parts. Her film credits include Network, Mystic Pizza, Edward Scissorhands and Erin Brockovich. She has three Emmy nominations, one for her supporting role on L.A. Law and two for Two and a Half Men. Born in Charleston, W.Va., Ferrell is married and has one daughter.
