People who wear wigs and transform themselves are the funniest,” says Ana Gasteyer, still in full hair, makeup, and head bandages after her photo shoot. “I have pretty old-fashioned taste when it comes down to it. I like irony, but I love character-driven comedy. Well-demonstrated human behavior is as good as it gets.” A Groundlings player who joined Saturday Night Live for six years before leaving in 2002, Gasteyer is revered for playing full-tilt characters, including a manically conceited Celine Dion, the hilariously benign NPR host Margaret Jo of “Delicious Dish,” and the singing Alta Dena Middle School teacher Bobby Moughan-Culp (alongside Will Ferrell). She currently portrays Sheila Shay, the pastel nightmare on the ABC comedy Suburgatory. “I think competitive people are really funny,” she says. “We have an insane Mother’s Day episode coming up in which the whole town is trying to honor their mother the most.” Gasteyer also has a bevy of upcoming character-driven parts in feature films: a lesbian mother who speaks Greek and plays the lute in the dark teen comedy Fun Size, directed by Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz; a nudist mayor in We The People, billed as an African-American
Meet the Parents; and a hysterical mother whose daughter (Anna Kendrick) is courted by Satan in the post-apocalytpic comedy Rapturepalooza. “I like being behind the fourth wall. I like the artifice to be really perfect. I like to see a real character,” she says as her headdress begins to unfurl. “I’m losing my bandage clips!”
