Amy Landecker (born September 30, 1969) is an American film, stage and television actress.
Landecker was born in Chicago, Illinois. She is the daughter of Judith (née Welch) and John Records Landecker, a Chicago radio personality. One of her maternal great-grandfathers was lawyer Joseph N. Welch.
Early in her career, Landecker primarily focused on stage work and did not move to Los Angeles until she was 38. Since then she has appeared in numerous films and television shows, including a supporting role as Mrs. Samsky in the Academy Award "Best Picture" nominated film A Serious Man, directed by the Coen brothers. That performance received praise from many professional film critics, including Roger Ebert, who wrote, "Amy Landecker, too, is perfect as Mrs. Samsky. She makes the character sexy in a strictly logical sense, but any prudent man would know on first sight to stay clear".
In 2011, Landecker was also a regular cast member of The Paul Reiser Show on NBC, playing Paul Reiser's wife, Claire. On television, she has guest starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, NCIS, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Revenge, and many more series. She has also appeared in a number of Off-Broadway theatrical productions, including Bug.
