Of Holland Taylor, Broadway critic John Simon has said “she is one of the very few utterly graceful, attractive, elegant and technically accomplished actresses in our theater,” and The New Yorker called her “the first vaudeville Gentile we ever saw.”  Memorable New York performances include Bess in “Breakfast with Les and Bess,” “Butley” opposite Alan Bates, and A.R. Gurney’s “The Cocktail Hour.”

While the stage is her natural habitat, she has excelled in film and television, equally successful in drama and comedy, appearing first in “Romancing the Stone” and over the years since in such films as “To Die For,” “Next Stop Wonderland,” “One Fine Day,” “George of the Jungle,” “The Truman Show,” “Happy Accidents,” “Keeping the Faith,” “Legally Blonde,” and even “Spy Kids (2 and 3).” She enjoys playing mothers when daughters are the likes of Nicole Kidman, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hope Davis, Debra Messing, and Tina Fey.

On television, Holland won the Supporting Actress in Drama Emmy for the smart and sexy judge on “The Practice.” She was nominated for  comedy Emmys for her Hedda Hopper-esque columnist on AMC’s “The Lot” and for Charlie Sheen’s hellish mother in “Two and a Half Men” She has played starring roles in many TV movies, such as her muchpraised appearance as Nancy Reagan in Showtime’s “The Day Reagan Was Shot” and in CBS’s “Bitter Blood” as murderous Kelly McGilles’s hideously murdered mother.

Her series starring roles include Norman Lear’s brilliant political satire “The Powers that Be,” (which eaerned Holland Entertainment Weekly’s “Cool Actress” of the year award) Tea Leoni’s “The Naked Truth,” and her very happy LA debut, “Bosom Buddies,” with the always brilliant and adorable Tom Hanks.

In the past few seasons, Holland has visited the Los Angeles Philharmonic as narrator, appearing as Persephone for Essa-Pekka Salonen in the Stravinski Festival, and in Disney Hall for conductor John Adams in the Phillip Glass opera “Ahknaten.” She visited the Pasadena Pops orchestra under Rachel Worby’s direction, presenting patriotic speeches set to music in a 4th of July program at the Rose Bowl, and appeared in the Hollywood Bowl’s production of “Sunset Boulevard.”

She presently continues on as Charlie Sheen’s mother on CBS’ “Two and a Half Men,” spending her long hiatus in New York. She is active with the Stella Adler Studio, and sometimes offers talks about the work and  cultural contribution and of this great teacher.

Holland is happy to be a Philadelphia native. She went to Westtown Friends School in that area, and she holds a B.A. from Bennington College. She took an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica in 2005.

Two new films will be released in ’08:  Universal’s “Baby Mama” with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and independent feature “The Chosen One,” with Rob Schneider and Steve Buscemi.
