Gillian Jacobs Headshot

Actress

Birth Date: October 19, 1982

Age: 40 years old

Birth Place: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Gillian Jacobs always had the makings of a star. The classically trained actress first impressed with her gripping portrayal of an assault victim in an off-Broadway production of "Cagelove" (2006), before making a smooth transition into film and television, where she guest starred on numerous hit dramas like "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC, 2001-07; USA, 2007-11) and "The Good Wife" (CBS, 2009-16). Gifted with a natural flair for comedy, Jacobs landed a plum role on the popular NBC series "Community" (NBC/Yahoo, 2009-2015), as a beautiful, idealistic coed who was always one step ahead of Joel McHale's unctuous lawyer character. Not only did the top-rated series highlight Jacobs' lighthearted side, but it also paved the way for even bigger roles to follow, including films such as "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" (2011) and Judd Apatow's romantic comedy "Love" (Netflix 2016- ).
