There aren’t too many female actors capable of achieving the title of comedic royalty attained by the likes of Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey, but newcomer Rebel Wilson is showing us all that she’s got the potential to make it in Hollywood. The native Australian is making quite an impact in the increasingly popular female-led, Judd Apatow-inspired style of humor. Wilson has enjoyed success in Australian television shows such as Bogan Pride and The Wedge, but her breakout role came in the film Bridesmaids, where she played Kristen Wiig’s boorish, yet funny roommate, Brynn. Wilson has since appeared in What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and is now starring in another Bridesmaids-esque comedy, Bachelorette, as well as the upcoming Pitch Perfect. It’s only a short while before Wilson hits comedy stardom, and she’ll surely keep audiences laughing every step of the way.
