Marisa Coughlan

Marisa Coughlan stars in the upcoming Jersey Films' highway patrol comedy Super Troopers, which was acquired by Fox Searchlight after landing a coveted midnight premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. The film additionally screened at both South By Southwest and the Aspen Comedy Festival. Coughlan most recently starred as love interest to Tom Green in the feature comedy Freddy Got Fingered. She also just wrapped production on the feature New Suit as a cutthroat Hollywood agent.

Coughlan was a relative newcomer when she stole the show in Kevin Williamson's directorial debut, Teaching Mrs. Tingle, as Jo Lynn Jordan, a sexy, witty and energetic high school senior who is much less concerned with class ranking than she is with having a good time. Coughlan also recently starred in Gossip for producer Joel Schumacher. Further strengthening her relationship with writer/producer Kevin Williamson, Coughlan also led the cast of ABC/Miramax's Wasteland.

While still in high school, Coughlan garnered a featured role in director Tony Bill's romantic drama, Untamed Heart for MGM. Though her role never quite made it to the screen, it did increase her penchant for acting. Hence, with some feature experience, a few commercials and some local theater to her credit, Coughlan decided to head West to pursue a degree from University of Southern California.

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Coughlan, 26, currently resides in Los Angeles.
