Jennifer Coolidge guest stars on THE CLOSER

Jennifer Coolidge, who has delighted fans with her pitch-perfect comic timing in such movies as American Pie, Best in Show and Legally Blonde, has been cast to guest star in an upcoming episode of TNT's hit series THE CLOSER.

In the episode entitled "Dial M for Provenza," Coolidge plays Angie Serabian, a none-too-bright woman married to the rich owner of a car dealership who winds up ensnared in an undercover sting operation.

"Dial M for Provenza" not only provides a great showcase for Coolidge but also for veteran actor G.W. Bailey as Lt. Provenza, whose unfortunate luck once again edges him towards the cusp of forced retirement.

Coolidge started her career doing improvisational comedy in New York and with Los Angeles' famed Groundlings troupe. She made her television debut in 1993 as a voluptuous masseuse in a memorable episode of Seinfeld. She has also made appearances on such TV series as Nip/Tuck, Friends, Sex and the City,Frasier and According to Jim. Her long list of film credits includes For Your Consideration, A Mighty Wind, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Broken Hearts Club, Zoolander, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, A Night at the Roxbury and Trial and Error.

THE CLOSER, which stars Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick, is ad-supported cable's #1 series of all time. The "Dial M for Provenza" episode featuring Coolidge is set to air Monday, Aug. 11.
