"SNL," 2000-2007: Rudolph joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" for the final three episodes of the 1999-2000 season. Thanks to her musical talents, Rudolph made a name for herself lampooning singers such as Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Diana Ross, Jennifer Lopez, Macy Gray, Patti LaBelle, Tuna Turner and Whitney Houston. She was also the series' go-to cast member for spoofing Oprah Winfrey.
Since leaving "SNL," Rudolph has maintained a successful career, appearing in popular films such as "Away We Go," "Grown Ups," "Bridesmaids" and "The Way, Way Back." She recently hosted her own variety show on NBC entitled "The Maya Rudolph Show" and appeared in the movie "Inherent Vice." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Theo Wargo/NBC/Getty Images)
