Lin Shaye made her film debut in 1978 with Jack Nicholson's in Goin' South, but it was the Farrelly brothers who gave Lin her first of a series of memorable characters in their 1994 hit comedy, Dumb & Dumber. The Farrelly's, recognizing both Shaye's talent and a kindred spirit, went on to cast her as the now infamous landlady, Mrs. Dumars, in Kingpin opposite Woody Harrelson, and then in their 1998 smash hit comedy There's Something About Mary. Shaye, at her scene-stealing best, played Magda, the sun-withered neighbor of Cameron Diaz. In Adam Rifkin's 1999 Detroit Rock City, Shaye transformed once again, this time into a God-fearing, KISS-hating mom. Her other credits include Boat Trip (2002), Dumb & Dumberer, When Harry Met Lloyd (2003), A Cinderella Story (2004), and Snakes On A Plane (2006).
