Want to Know More About Me...

There is a great website called  Swiped Off Her Feet  (catchy, isn't it?) and I was asked to fill out one of their profiles about dating and love and all that stuff. Check it out! 

Profiles: Ellen D Williams

Ellen D Williams is an actress known for her roles on How I Met Your Mother and Baskets. What is the quality you most like in a man? I tend to love the qualities of men who have been raised by women or who have had primarily female influences in their lives.

 

I Really Need to Update More...

I'm not good at keeping up with updates so here is a crap load:

Just shot an episode of TruTv's Andrea Savage show I'm Sorry! I had such a great time! My kind of show, scripted but got to improv, which is my favorite. 

I shot a Progressive commericial! #FLO Have you seen it? Marc DeCarlo and Michael McMillian are funny guys!

Since the last post I've returned to Baskets, Season 3! And starred on: 

I also got a chance to work with Ginger Gonzaga and Jason Ritter in the heartbreaking short, Your Day:

If your heart can take it and you have no where to go within the next few hours then you can watch it here:

Your Day

A young couple, Jack (Jason Ritter) and Jane (Ginger Gonzaga), spend the day at a hotel, seemingly to celebrate Jane's birthday, until you discover they are there for a VERY different reason... Written and Directed by Ginger Gonzaga Produced by Ginger Gonzaga, Adam Dubowsky, Sasha Nonas Barnes Score by Eric J.

BASKETS on FX!

Baskets FX! 

So happy to announce that you can catch me playing Mrs. Dale (Nicole) Baskets on Baskets this season. Last night was the premiere and it seems to be well received! Let me just say the show gets better and better with each episode. It's so beautifully done and the cast that consists of Zach Galifianakis, Martha Kelly and in his comeback of all comebacks Louie Anderson as Mrs. Baskets ... well if you didn't catch it please make sure you set your dvr's to series record and catch the first episode on demand. It's really smart television. I show up in episodes 4, 5, 8, and 10!
