Being In a State of Yes
With stunning beauty and natural talent, Leslie Bibb has established herself as one of Hollywood’s most captivating film and television actresses.
Upcoming, Bibb can be seen starring opposite Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone in GOD’S FAVORITE IDIOT, a Netflix original comedy series about midlevel tech-support employee (Falcone) who finds love with co-worker Amily Luck (McCarthy) at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God. Bibb plays Satan, who is trying to upset the cosmic balance between Heaven and Hell, and only Clark and his friends stand in her way. The series is slated to premiere on Netflix on June 15th.
Additionally, Bibb will also be featured in Lionsgate’s ABOUT MY FATHER alongside Robert DeNiro, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Kim Cattrall. The film follows the relationship between Sebastian (Maniscalco) and his old-school Italian immigrant father (DeNiro) when the latter learns of Sebastian’s plans to propose to his all-American girlfriend (Bibb) and subsequently crashes a family weekend with her parents. The film premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to critical praise.
She will soon begin production on AppleTV+’s original comedy series MRS. AMERICAN PIE alongside Kristin Wiig, Alison Janney, and Laura Dern. Based on Juliet McDaniel’s book, MRS. AMERICAN PIE is set during the ‘Powderkeg Era’ of the 1970s, following Maxine Simmons (Wiig) and her attempt to secure her seat at America’s most exclusive table: Palm Beach High Society. Bibb will play Dinah, a lovely, but vulnerable member of the high society.
Additionally, she recently wrapped production for THE INHABITANT, an indie horror thriller from Steelyard Pictures about infamous ax murderer Lizzie Borden’s bloodline that runs straight through the heart of American suburbia where a series of supernatural events reveal a dark truth behind a tormented teenager.

On the small screen, Bibb starred alongside Josh Duhamel in the Netflix superhero series JUPITER’S LEGACY. Created by Mark Millar and Steven DeKnight, and produced by Lorenzo DiBonaventura, Bibb played the matriarch Lady Liberty, one of the most powerful heroes on the planet. The series was released on May 7, 2021 and quickly became the streamer’s #1 show during it’s one-season run.

She also has had recurring roles on ABC’s AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE starring Katy Mixon; TV Land’s NOBODIES; NBC’s CROSSING JORDAN in seasons 5 and 6 as Detective Lu Simmons and in the 9th season of NBC’s ER as medical student Erin Harkins.

“I remember Maggie Flanigan said this in class, your job as an actor is to come with twenty ideas. Not one, twenty.”
“I think when you get to work with great actors, especially in comedy, it’s like graduate school. So I’m going to go to the AP class.”
“Your ego is your worst enemy. Fear is your worst enemy.”
