Missi Pyle

Missi Pyle


Missi Pyle has made indelible appearances in numerous film and television projects over the past 20 years. An inveterate character actor with a penchant for big but quietly assured performances, Pyle smartly embodies characters with large personalities or outsized comedic personas, but without the frantic need to call attention to herself that mars so much broad humor. That combination of restraint and vividness is likely why she’s become a go-to staple of so many comedies on both the small and big screen, from guest turns in shows like Friends, Two And A Half Men, and Inside Amy Schumer, to stand-out appearances in movies like Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, and Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay. Similarly, she’s demonstrated strong dramatic work in films like Gone Girl, as well as her new viral contagion thriller, Pandemic.

Pyle was married to author Antonio Sacre from 2000 to 2005.

Pyle married naturalist Casey Anderson on September 12, 2008. The wedding was country-western themed and took place in Montana. Wedding guests included bandmate Shawnee Smith and comedian Steve Agee. Anderson’s pet grizzly bear, Brutus, served as his best man in the ceremony. Pyle and Anderson appeared in “Grizzly Dogs”, the October 22, 2010 episode of Dog Whisperer, in which they sought the help of Cesar Millan to rehabilitate their dog. Pyle confirmed their breakup in 2013.

Pyle “married” actress and bandmate Shawnee Smith in a faux ceremony at the All Love is Equal Launch Party in West Hollywood on November 18, 2009. The two actresses pretended to get married in support of repealing Prop 8 in California. Actor Hal Sparks dressed as a priest and performed the ceremony with them using rainbow-colored hula hoops as rings.

The drag queen “Pissi Myles” is named after her.
